Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul has announced an investigation into the alleged police shooting of Jacob Blake is underway.

“We’ve conducted over 80 witness interviews, (and) over 100 pieces of evidence have been collected,” stated Kaul. “This investigation continues to move forward briskly.”

He went on to say he would not address any public commentary on the matter, including remarks from Attorney General William Barr.

The Democrat also failed to denounce radical left violence in Kenosha, which he blamed on the “far right” instead.

“When you make excuses for people who are involved in that kind of violence, whether it’s vigilante violence, white supremacist violence or any other kind of violence, we need clear condemnations of that from our leaders,” added Kaul.

He also welcomed Joe Biden to Kenosha and downplayed President Trump’s recent visit.
