WATCH LIVE: Trump Signs Executive Order on Improving Accountability and Whistleblower Protection
President Donald Trump is scheduled to sign an executive order on improving accountability and whistleblower protection at 4:45 PM ET today. The EO will impact the Department of Veterans Affairs and the signing will take place at the VA.
On Wednesday, VA Secretary David Shulkin held a press briefing on the upcoming executive order, explaining that the Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Office will place “an executive in charge that will report directly” to him so they can identify who shouldn’t be working at the VA anymore.
Shulkin acknowledged that there will be an additional cost to this office, stating that it is an important responsibility. However, he didn’t have the exact figures yet on the costs.
