President Trump started cleaning house at the Department of Veterans Affairs on the day of his inauguration.
A corrupt official at a V.A. hospital in Puerto Rico, CEO DeWayne Hamlin, was fired January 20, 2017. He was terminated for multiple wrongdoings, including stealing opioids for his own use, harassing whistleblowers, and even trying to bribe one whistleblower with $300,000.
Hamlin appealed his termination through the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), and now he’s back to work.
Wednesday, Fox News interviewed whistleblower Scott Davis regarding the matter. Davis said leadership should have handled the firing process better, so that President Trump’s wishes would have been better executed, and said VA Secretary David Shulkin should be doing a better job at holding people accountable.
Davis alleged that the only real champion that VA whistleblowers feel they have in Washington for accountability is President Trump. He said congress needs to do more.
