CNN’s Drew Griffin: ‘I Don’t Think The VA Can Fix Itself’

Griffin: 'Throw out every senior manager in the VA'

BY:

CNN’s Drew Griffin, who first uncovered the VA scandal, had bleak predictions for the organization’s future, saying “Based on everything I know to date, I don’t think the VA can fix itself. I don’t know how you fix this. I really don’t know, if I was going to give advice, where you would give it.”

According to Griffin, the only solution would be to “Throw out every senior manager in the VA. I know that sounds harsh, but I don’t know how else you would do this surgically.”

Griffin ripped into the VA’s widespread system of abuse: “There is an entire bureaucracy here that has been allowing this to happen for years and years and years, and I don’t know how you get one administrator at the top who is going to somehow change the culture without throwing out all these people.”
