Michigan’s Republican Governor Rick Snyder last night released more than 250 pages of his own emails relating to the lead-tainted water crisis in Flint, something he pledged to do earlier this week in his State of the State address.

The emails, which cover 2014 and 2015, contain no real smoking gun implicating the governor, but do shed more light on what the state knew, and when, about the crisis unfolding in Flint.

Here & Now’s Robin Young gets the latest from Michigan Radio reporter Lindsey Smith.
