FBI’s Phoenix Office to Handle Criminal Investigation of VA Hospital Following Serious Allegations

The FBI’s Phoenix office is handling the criminal investigation of the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Arizona Republic reports.

FBI Director James Comey said the Phoenix office is handling the case because the allegations began at the VA in Phoenix.

At least 18 Arizona veterans waiting for care in the Phoenix VA Health Care System have died. The staff also is accused of manipulating patient-wait times to receive financial bonuses.

Today the Senate is considering whether to support legislation that would allow veterans to seek care outside of the VA system.

U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said in a statement that they are taking the matter seriously.

“To restore veterans’ trust and confidence in the VA, individual employees must be held accountable. The FBI’s investigation is a positive signal; but, wherever the evidence shows that crimes have been committed, they must follow through and prosecute those responsible to the fullest extent of the law.”
