On the heels of Senior Investigative Correspondent Drew Griffin's exclusive interview with an employee who says she was forced to cover up fraudulent records at an Arizona VA hospital, Congressman Jeff Miller joins Anderson Cooper with his reactions.
Calling the revelations "more than stunning," Miller surmises that the situation is not exclusive to Phoenix, but applauds Pauline DeWenter for summoning the courage to speak up amid altered death records of patients.
The Chairman of the House Veterans' Affairs Committee, Miller calls for accountability, and pledges to continue fighting for the rights of all vets.

The buck stops with those who barred the FBI and DOJ from investigating these crimes as soon as they were reported, in order to allow the VA to further spoliation of the evidence. The VA has not investigated itself. It has used the appearance of "internal investigation" to get everyone lying in the same direction so that by the time competent external investigators are allowed in, all remaining evidence argues in their favor.
Who in their right mind would receive a complaint about an institution manipulating records, then send the suspects out to investigate their own crimes?
Possibly the kind of people who would then be shocked that they manipulated the records even further to reduced their liability.
WHERE ELSE IN SOCIETY ARE SUSPECTS ALLOWED TO INVESTIGATE THEIR OWN CRIMES?
NOWHERE! THAT'S WHY IT'S COLOSSALLY STUPID!
