VA may owe veterans millions in refunds but knowingly hasn't paid them for years, probe finds

VA may owe disabled veterans millionsMore than 50,000 disabled veterans could be owed as much as $190 million in refunds from the Department of Veterans Affairs for home loan fees they were wrongly charged or no longer owe, an investigation has found.

Senior leaders knew about the problem for years but didn’t ensure veterans received what they are due, the investigation by the VA inspector general found.

Veterans pay the fees when they buy homes with the help of VA's Home Loan Guaranty Program, but they are supposed to be exempt if they are disabled. Fees can total up to 3.3% of a home's value.

In cases where veterans improperly paid the fees or the VA later determined they were disabled, the agency is supposed to issue refunds.

Fox News Host Pete Hegseth Privately Lobbied Trump to Pardon Accused War Criminals

Fox and Friends host lobbied Trump on pardoning war criminals

If the president pardons U.S. servicemen accused and convicted of war crimes, you can thank one of Donald Trump’s favorite cable-news hosts.

Over the weekend, news broke that President Trump is preparing to pardon several U.S. servicemen involved in high-profile cases of gunning down civilians or killing detainees, with the White House having already ordered that the necessary paperwork be drawn up ahead of the coming Memorial Day.

The news came roughly two months after Trump publicly intervened in what he called “restrictive” confinement conditions of one of the alleged war criminals.

TVNL Comment: Military leaders oppose pardons of any soldiers convicted of war crimes.  These men were tried in military courts and found to violate laws clearly set out to prevent the crimes charged in these tribunals.  This is very dangerous to our own soldiers at war.
