Congressman: FBI to investigate local VA

TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) - The FBI will be investigating criminal allegations at the Temple VA, according to a release from Congressman John Carter (R-TX31).

Congressman Carter spoke with Acting VA Secretary Sloan Gibson about getting "quality care" for veterans at the Temple VA. Before speaking with Gibson, Congressman Carter also spoke with FBI Director, James Comey, about getting the FBI to investigate the Temple VA clinic.

“I believe that the FBI needs to be investigating the Temple VA facility for criminal activities, and the Veterans Affairs Administration needs to be investigating the facility as well to administer cultural and bureaucratic reforms,” said Congressman Carter.

In a statement from Congressman Carter, he also said, “We need an investigative body that can look into criminal allegations, which is why my Texas colleagues and I have called for a FBI investigation. Anyone participating in illegal activities needs to be terminated immediately and held accountable for their crimes, not be relocated to another VA facility where they can mistreat veterans at a different facility. We need to fire these corrupt bureaucrats and hire honest public servants who are dedicated to honoring our veterans and repaying them for the sacrifices they have made for our freedom.”
