MILWAUKEE- Prominent Milwaukee real estate executive Andrew Jensen had nothing to say as he was released from jail Wednesday evening.
 
TODAY'S TMJ4 was told a district attorney investigator arrested Jensen Tuesday evening for refusing to cooperate in the John Doe investigation.

Attorney Julius Kim is a former prosecutor in the Milwaukee County District Attorney's office and he told TODAY'S TMJ4, "by the time this investigation is said and done, I think we're going to see a lot of higher profile individuals being brought into this investigation. Mr. Jensen's situation might just be an example of what might happen if and when people don't want to cooperate."
 
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Jensen, a broker with Boerke Co., wanted immunity in exchange for cooperating with a secret John Doe investigations into Republican Governor Scott Walker's current and former aides.

He also wanted his name kept secret, a request denied by an appeals court.

As part of this same investigation, FBI agents raided the Madison home of top Walker aide Cindy Archer back in September.

It is still a mystery where this probe is leading.

Milwaukee Democratic Rep. Josh Zepnick told TODAY'S TMJ4, "Why is this being moved forward? What is going on? What are the wrongdoing allegations?  Who is all involved?  How high up does it go?  Does it include the governor?"
 
Meanwhile, Greendale Republican Jeff Stone is a political ally of the governor and said, "I haven't seen anyone being charged in this and I think until we do i think we owe it to everybody to presume they're all innocent."

TODAY'S TMJ4 reached out to Jensen's attorney and his company for comment, but TODAY'S TMJ4 didn't hear back.

TODAY'S TMJ4's Tom Murray reports there will be no charges issued against Jensen at this time.
