Correspondent David Shuster reports live from Wisconsin about the possibility that Gov. Scott Walker could be indicted in a long-running investigation of possible embezzlement and corruption among his staff, even if he is not recalled by voters this week.
“Walker and his staff stonewalled the investigation early on,” Shuster says, and the FBI got involved. “Scott Walker and his legal team have been asking to be cleared by the Justice Department for the last five or six weeks,” which guidelines would generally require for a public official in the midst of an election. “The prosecutors have repeatedly said no, and I’m told that at least a week and a half ago, they said the reason we are not going to give you that cover is that you are a target of the investigation who may be indicted.”
