MADISON, Wis. – Three months after state Attorney General Brad Schimel said his Department of Justice opened an investigation of court-sealed John Doe documents leaked to a liberal British publication, the probe remains ongoing, according to a DOJ official.

And agency representatives are maintaining their right to remain silent about where the investigation stands.

“We do not have any comment or update on the ongoing investigation into the John Doe leak,” DOJ spokesman Johnny Koremenos wrote in an email Wednesday morning to Wisconsin Watchdog.

“We will let you know when there is something to report to the public,” he added.

Sources have clammed up since late last month, when the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that the DOJ seized materials from the state Ethics Commission in early February as part of its probe.
