FLINT, MI -- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says Flint's water crisis is "unconscionable," and says citizens deserve both immediate fixes and full disclosure from Gov. Rick Snyder.

"The situation in Flint, Michigan, is extremely concerning. No parent should have to worry that their kids' water isn't safe," Clinton said in a statement issued today, Jan. 11

"We now know that a General Motors factory stopped using Flint's water because it was corroding car engine parts -- yet officials continued to reassure the public that the water was safe for human consumption. That's unconscionable, and I applaud the Department of Justice for joining the Environmental Protection Agency in investigating what happened here."

Clinton's statement comes the day after Denis McDonough, President Obama's chief of staff, said the White House is very concerned about the water situation in Flint during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" program Sunday, Jan. 10.

"Thousands of children may have been exposed to lead, which could irreversibly harm their health and brain functioning. Plus, this catastrophe -- which was caused by a zeal to save money at all costs -- could actually cost $1.5 billion in infrastructure repairs," Clinton said.
