Claims of vested interests, potential insider trading, and other misconduct focus on officials who've defended the G.I. Bill
This is why there are FAR rules about the APPEARANCE of impartiality and conflicts of interest. It is not about who we like and don't like. Insider trading is a serious offense. Whistleblowers face reprisal when they question the actions of senior leaders, which shifts the focus away from the wrongdoing and places the employee on a path of self-defense. Senator Grassley is doing his job asking for an investigation and the SEC should adjudicate. Motive speculation aside, the truth needs to be seen and ethics enforced. VA rarely holds accountable its senior leaders. They get more training or opportunities to relocate. Really bad ones, get to retire or resign without any further penalty. The whistleblower gets detailed or fired.
