U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., joined Republican members of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee members in calling on the Department of Justice (DOJ) to join efforts with the Department of Veterans Affairs Inspector General’s investigation into misconduct at VA facilities.
“We would like to ensure that there is full participation from the Department of Justice in regard to the Department of Veterans Affairs Inspector General’s investigation into widespread allegations of gross misconduct by employees across the country at Veterans Affairs Medical Centers,” the senators wrote.
“Given the scope and severity of the current wait time and scheduling data manipulation allegations, we appreciate your willingness to assist in ongoing efforts and helping to get to the bottom of these unacceptable, systemic problems.”
The letter was signed by Senators Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., John Boozman, R-Ark., Richard Burr, R-N.C., Mike Johanns, R-Neb., and Jerry Moran, R-Kan.
