Brad Schimel: Campaign Video Investigation Still Ongoing

Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel told Mark Belling in a contentious on-air interview on Thursday that the investigation into voter fraud in Wisconsin was ongoing.

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Under fire from conservatives, Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel said this week an investigation into voter fraud remained open, contradicting comments he made hours earlier that the probe had been closed.

Schimel suggested his investigators may yet review more than 100 hours of undercover video shot by Project Veritas Action, a group run by conservative activist James O’Keefe.

“It’s not the end of it,” the Republican attorney general said Thursday on “The Mark Belling Show” on WISN-AM (1130).

Schimel’s office released a memo this week from an investigator saying he found no violations of Wisconsin laws. Just hours before he claimed the investigation had not been shut down, Schimel told the Wisconsin Radio Network the memo had been released because the investigation was closed.

Schimel spokesman Johnny Koremenos on Friday said the memo had been released in error and declined to answer other questions.

Schimel kept talking about the "third video" from Project Veritas that they hadn't received yet. He claimed that the memo stating the investigation was closed never should have been released.

Belling and Schimel kept going back and forth.

The conclusion: The investigation continues.
