Gov. Scott Walker will meet with the Milwaukee County District Attorney about the county's ongoing John Doe investigation.More >>
MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker said he's seen no reason to question the fairness of a continuing secret investigation into the activities of his former aides and others by Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm, despite revelations more than 40 members of Chisholm's staff signed petitions to recall Walker.
Walker said, "I know John, I've know him for years. I think he's a reasonable guy. That's why we agreed to cooperate with him on it. I haven't seen any signs, dealing with him directly, that there are any problems."
Chisholm has criminally charged several former Walker aides, and a grant of immunity was made to Walker's spokesperson. Walker has said he will meet with Chisholm to share information, but declined Thursday to confirm whether that meeting has taken place, deferring to Chisholm.
Chisholm has said no prosecutor involved in the John Doe probe signed a recall petition against Walker.
Attorney and former Waukesha County District Attorney Paul Bucher asked Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen to take over the investigation over concerns the probe was tainted, but Van Hollen declined.
