The new interim chief of staff for the Department of Veterans Affairs reportedly ordered employees in 2014 not to disclose information about secret wait lists to members of Congress.

The VA released a statement Friday listing Vivieca Wright-Simpson as the interim chief of staff effective on Sunday. According to the press release, Wright-Simpson has filled numerous senior roles in the department, played an important part in transforming the Veterans Health Administration and is a “trusted leader with a commitment for serving Veterans.”

What the press release neglected to mention, however, is that Wright-Simpson was instrumental in blocking an investigation initiated by two Pennsylvanian congressmen, who wanted to know more about veterans waiting years for health care appointments at the Pittsburgh VA.
