FLINT, Mich. - The preliminary exam for two former Michigan Department of Health and Human Services employees continued this morning with Dr. Mona Hannah-Attisha taking the stand.

Nancy Peeler and Robert Scott are charged with misconduct in office and conspiracy for their roles in the Flint water crisis.

Dr. Mona testified that while her research has helped kids, it would never have become an issue if the state had warned people about the water.

"None of my research was necessary, it should have ended when we knew there was lead in the water. So, if there is lead in the water, it is going to get into the bodies of children, " she said.

Flint water activist Melissa Mays is expected to testify in this case next.
