Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is charging six more state employees in connection with the contamination of Flint’s drinking water supply.

Michigan Radio's Rick Pluta covered the Attorney General's press conference and joined Stateside to talk about the reaction to the announcement. One of the biggest takeaways is that this investigation is far from over. Pluta says "they are working their way up the ladder ... targeting higher and higher and higher levels [of government officials] and they say they are not done yet."

Listen to the full interview above to hear Pluta's analysis of the charges, and just how big of a criminal investigation this could end up being.
