A Michigan congressman became one of the first Republican lawmaker to raise questions about Donald Trump’s numerous business interests around the world.
One congressman said Gov. Snyder “continues to withhold documents and witnesses from Congress” about the Flint water crisis.
Rep. Cummings called Snyder’s team a “vindictive administration” mired in “utter incompetence.”
Congressional members expressed outrage Tuesday over the grave mishandling of the Flint water crisis, saying government at all levels failed residents.
An internal Environmental Protection Agency memo suggested federal officials didn’t think Flint was worth helping.
The top ranking Democrat on the U.S. House committee investigating the Flint water crisis blamed partisan politics on the failure to hold Gov. Snyder accountable.
Gov. Snyder said he wants to explain how “all levels of government” failed to protect Flint residents from being poisoned by drinking water.
One congresswoman said: “I’m mad as hell. We need to shut the governor’s office down!”
The news comes on the same day the FBI confirmed it was investigating officials’ role in the Flint water crisis.
In a separate development, a Republican-led Congressional hearing won’t include Snyder, even though he accepted blame for thousands of Flint residents being poisoned.
