Krauthammer’s Take: VA Internal Investigation Should Involve Justice Department

Charles Krauthammer said the Obama administration needs a “high-speed internal investigation” of the Veterans Affairs scandal. The investigation needs to involve the Justice Department “or it looks like another classic administration cover-up,” he said.

The Veterans Affairs office announced on Friday that Dr. Robert Petzel, the undersecretary for health in the VA, was resigning. But Dr. Petzel was already scheduled to retire.

“[His] isn’t the first head to roll, it’s the first head to wobble,” Krauthammer said. “This is hardly somebody who’s being held accountable in any serious way.”
