Congressman Mike Coffman (R-CO) released the following statement after receiving notification from the Justice Department pertaining to the Veterans' Affairs Hospital in Aurora, CO:

"I am deeply disappointed with the decision by the Justice Department for not prosecuting the VA leaders responsible for trying to coverup over a $1 billion in cost overruns by continually lying to members of Congress during investigative hearings.  It will be impossible for Congress to perform its oversight responsibilities so long as key officials can knowingly give misleading testimony without facing any consequences whatsoever.  I will not give up the fight to pursue justice for our veterans and for the American taxpayers until those responsible for these failures are held accountable."
