New VA Secretary Expected to be Confirmed in Senate Vote

It's expected that Pentagon official Robert Wilkie will be confirmed in a Senate vote Monday as the new secretary of Veterans Affairs.

Wilkie -- President Donald Trump's third pick for the job in 18 months -- says he will "shake up complacency" at VA, which is trying to cut long waits for medical care faced by millions of veterans, the Associated Press reported.

Earlier this year, Trump fired his first VA secretary, David Shulkin, due to ethics charges and resistance within the VA over the role of private care for veterans. Trump's initial choice to replace Shulkin was White House doctor Ronny Jackson, but he withdrew after allegations of workplace misconduct.

Wilkie served as acting VA secretary after Shulkin was fired, then returned to his role as Pentagon undersecretary.

If confirmed, Wilkie would replace current acting VA secretary Peter O'Rourke, who has been in conflict with the VA inspector general, the AP reported.
