Kinzinger: DOJ Should Be Involved in Investigating Fake Waiting Lists

In response to The New Victory Caucus in Congress

U.S. representative Adam Kinzinger (R., Ill.) said the VA’s secret waiting lists display “a level of incompetency — to a level of criminality” on Face the Nation Sunday.

The president hasn’t shown the “intense outrage” that he should over the VA scandal, Kinzinger said, and the Department of Justice should be involved.
