U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs, has urged the Department of Justice (DoJ) to immediately investigate unethical behavior by Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) employees identified in a VA Office of Inspector General (VAOIG) report released in September. In a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Blumenthal noted that this is another example in a growing list of misconduct at VA, and the DoJ must take action to stop any ongoing and future misuse of funds that should be going to the nation's veterans. Senator Blumenthal's letter is available on the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs website. The VAOIG report is available on the VA Office of Inspector General website.
