A federal grand jury on Tuesday indicted PG&E on 16 new counts in connection with the San Bruno pipeline explosion in 2010, including a charge of obstructing justice. The new indictments, which will be added to the original 12 charges in April, come one day after San Bruno officials accused PG&E and its regulator, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), of overly friendly, "cozy" e-mail communications and asked that the head of the CPUC be removed.

Jim Ruane, mayor of San Bruno

Loretta Lynch, former president of the California Public Utilities Commission
