Dellinger to testify alongside Shinseki

Only 10 days after The American Legion called for the resignations of Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki and two of his top executives, National Commander Daniel M. Dellinger will testify at a May 15 hearing before the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs where Shinseki will be the star witness.

Shinseki will testify about the state of VA and will answer questions from the committee about the alleged cover-up at the Phoenix VA facility and many others.After CNN broke the news on April 24 that 40 veterans may have died while waiting for care from the Phoenix VA facility, Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake asked the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs to conduct a hearing on allegations of patient neglect at the Phoenix facility. The committee's chairman, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., responded that a hearing would be held after VA's Office of Inspector General completed its own independent investigation.

Sanders' said Thursday's hearing on "The State of VA Health Care" will focus on "what the VA health care systems does well and how it can improve care for veterans."

The hearing will begin at 10 a.m. (EDT) and will be streamed live here.

  1. Federal TORT Law........I'm also a victim of these. Very wrong and very twisted. However, under this Federal TORT Law which most don't know about and should. Look it up Veterans this could help us all.
  2. If they seriously connect death due to extra long appointments, then a lot of people should be fired (with loss of all benefits) and possible jail time.
  3. Why is the FBI not investigating this? This is a crime. Manslaughter is punishable with jail time. These people directly involved with this should be tried before a jury of their peers.
