Bad blood boils over in VA, House committee hearings

Updated: Wednesday, July 16, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Distrust and bad blood has been building between the VA and the House Veterans Affairs Committee, and this week, it boiled over.

Committee Chairman and Florida Republican Jeff Miller produced a memo in which a VA official in Philadelphia purportedly tells subordinates to ignore a committee investigator who was visiting the office unannounced.

The information came out during congressional hearings.

In the meantime, insiders believe the VA is making progress with the claims backlog, but another major investigation is now looking at how the VA handles its claims data.

That information is expected to be discussed in Wednesday's hearings.
