Hegseth: Concerned Veterans for America Supports Decision to Subpoena Shinseki
VA’s Lack of Transparency Has forced House Committee on Veterans Affairs to take Drastic Measure
Arlington, Va. – The House Committee on Veterans Affairs today voted to subpoena Veterans Affairs (VA) Sec. Eric Shinseki for e-mails tied to the “secret” list of veterans awaiting care at the Phoenix VA hospital. The e-mails allegedly discuss the destruction of the list. Last month an investigation of the Phoenix VA hospital by the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, headed by Rep. Jeff Miller, showed up to 40 veterans’ deaths may be linked to long wait times for healthcare services. Pete Hegseth, CEO of Concerned Veterans for America, issued the following statement regarding the Shinseki subpoena:
“This is a drastic measure that the House Committee on Veterans Affairs was forced to take because the Department of Veterans Affairs refuses to answer questions and be transparent. We fully support Chairman Miller’s committee in doing whatever they need to do to get the bottom of what happened at the Phoenix VA hospital and everywhere else.”
