(Washington, DC) -- FBI Director James Comey says the Phoenix office of the FBI is involved in a criminal investigation into the Veterans Affairs scandal. Comey made the remark as he testified before Congress this morning. It's the first known involvement of the FBI in the review being conducted by the Veterans Affairs inspector general's office. Embattled VA Secretary Eric Shinseki recently resigned over systemic scheduling problems, notably at the VA health clinic in Phoenix.
