Washington Top Democrats on the House and Senate Veterans Affairs committees believe VA Secretary Robert Wilkie "may have misused taxpayer funds and other government assets in an effort to benefit the reelection of President Donald Trump and certain Republican candidates seeking office in 2020," according to a letter sent to Wilkie Tuesday. fYg世界播

华盛顿众议院和参议院退伍军人事务委员会的民主党高层认为,退伍军人事务部部长罗伯特·威尔基“可能滥用纳税人的资金和其他政府资产,以利于唐纳德·特朗普总统和某些共和党候选人在2020年竞选连任”,根据周二发给威尔基的一封信。fYg世界播


The letter, signed by ranking member of the Senate panel, Jon Tester and the chairman of the House committee, Rep. Mark Takano, demands Wilkie turn over "a full accounting of taxpayer-funded travel, attendance at events, and related activities by you and other Department senior leaders that appear to be in violation of the Hatch Act and relevant regulations." fYg世界播

这封信由参议院小组资深成员乔恩·泰斯特(Jon Tester)和众议院委员会主席马克·高野(Mark Takano)签署,要求威尔基交出“你和其他国务院高级领导人似乎违反了”哈奇法“(Hatch Act)和相关规定的纳税人资助的旅行、出席活动和相关活动的完整账目。”fYg世界播

"Leaders at VA have historically risen above partisan politics. Unfortunately, our review of publicly available information, media reports, social media postings, and other data suggests that the travel, events, and other related official actions of VA senior leaders are steering the Department away from its apolitical mission and potentially using Department resources in an attempt to tip the scale in favor of the President and other Republican candidates," they wrote. fYg世界播

他们写道:“退伍军人管理局的领导人历来超越党派政治。不幸的是,我们对公开信息、媒体报道、社交媒体帖子和其他数据的审查表明,退伍军人管理局高级领导人的旅行、事件和其他相关的官方行动正在引导退伍军人事务部背离其非政治使命,并可能利用退伍军人事务部的资源,试图使天平向总统和其他共和党候选人倾斜,”他们写道。fYg世界播


"Furthermore, efforts to engage in overtly political activity may have come at the expense of legitimate functions of the Department's mission—to provide health care, benefits, and memorial services to our nation's veterans, as well as care for their families," the letter states. fYg世界播

“此外,公开参与政治活动的努力可能是以牺牲国防部的合法职能为代价的-为我们国家的退伍军人提供医疗保健、福利和纪念服务,以及照顾他们的家人,”信中写道。fYg世界播


VA spokesperson Christina Noel quickly pushed back on the allegations, telling CNN Tuesday that "the lawmakers' partisan letter, which has no republican support, calls into question who's being partisan in this situation." fYg世界播

弗吉尼亚州发言人克里斯蒂娜·诺埃尔(Christina Noel)迅速反驳了这些指控,她周二告诉CNN,“议员们没有共和党人支持的党派信件让人怀疑在这种情况下谁是党派之父。”fYg世界播

"Since August, the secretary has visited: North Carolina, Ohio, Illinois, Georgia, Tennessee, Connecticut, Montana, Maryland, Colorado, Wyoming, California and Florida. During his time in office, Secretary Willkie has traveled in a non-partisan fashion to 49 states—including Montana and California at the request of Senator Tester and Chairman Takano, respectively," Noel said in a statement. fYg世界播

诺埃尔在一份声明中说:“自8月以来,国务卿访问了北卡罗来纳州、俄亥俄州、伊利诺伊州、佐治亚州、田纳西州、康涅狄格州、蒙大拿州、马里兰州、科罗拉多州、怀俄明州、加利福尼亚州和佛罗里达州。在他任职期间,威尔基国务卿以无党派的方式访问了49个州-包括蒙大拿州和加利福尼亚州,分别应参议员泰斯特和主席高野的要求。”fYg世界播


"Secretary Wilkie's official travel is available online for everyone to see, and these trips to hear firsthand from our employees in the field are a fundamental responsibility of any VA secretary. The notion that these visits are somehow improper is absurd," she added. fYg世界播

她补充说:“威尔基部长的官方旅行可以在网上看到,这些旅行是我们现场员工的第一手资料,这是任何退伍军人事务部秘书的基本职责。认为这些访问不知何故是不正当的想法是荒谬的。”fYg世界播


Still, Tester and Takano provided several examples of senior VA leaders, including Wilkie, "appearing to use the power, reach, and resources of the Department to inappropriately involve themselves in political campaigns to benefit the President and his supporters in Congress," according to a joint statement from the two Democratic lawmakers. fYg世界播

尽管如此,泰斯特和高野还是提供了几个退伍军人管理局高级领导人的例子,其中包括威尔基,根据这两名民主党议员的联合声明,他们“似乎利用国防部的权力、触角和资源,不适当地参与政治活动,让总统和他在国会的支持者受益”。fYg世界播

The lawmakers note that Wilkie traveled to North Carolina in early August "for the dedication of a non-profit veterans' transition facility with an incumbent Senator up for reelection," but around that same time, also participated in "at least one 14-minute videotaped discussion with the same incumbent Senator." fYg世界播

议员们指出,威尔基在8月初前往北卡罗来纳州,“为一家非营利性退伍军人过渡设施的落成仪式,在任参议员正在竞选连任”,但大约在同一时间,他还参加了“与同一名在任参议员进行的至少一次14分钟的录像讨论”。fYg世界播


"In early August of 2020, you traveled, along with your Acting Chief of Staff, who was confirmed as Assistant Secretary for Congressional and Legislative Affairs, to North Carolina for the dedication of a non-profit veterans' transition facility with an incumbent Senator up for reelection," they wrote. fYg世界播

他们写道:“2020年8月初,你和你的代理幕僚长(被确认为国会和立法事务助理部长)一起前往北卡罗来纳州,为一个非营利性退伍军人过渡设施的落成仪式做准备,一名现任参议员正在竞选连任。”fYg世界播

"Public recordings of your various remarks appear intended to elevate the candidate for reelection. This is one of several visits to North Carolina you made in 2020 where you appeared alongside the incumbent in what appears to be a sustained effort to benefit the candidate," they wrote in their letter to Wilkie. fYg世界播

他们在写给威尔基的信中写道:“公开记录你的各种言论似乎是为了提升竞选连任的候选人。这是你2020年访问北卡罗来纳州的几次访问之一,在那里你与现任总统一起出现,似乎是为了让候选人受益的持续努力。”fYg世界播


"As you know well, being a native of the state, North Carolina is the site of a highly competitive 2020 US Senate race, will be the site of an expected competitive 2022 US Senate race, and is a battleground state in the Presidential election. It appears you conducted all of these visits in your official capacity as Secretary," they added. fYg世界播

他们补充说:“正如你很清楚的那样,作为一个土生土长的州,北卡罗来纳州是2020年竞争激烈的美国参议员竞选的举办地,预计2022年美国参议员竞选也将在这里举行,而且是总统选举的战场州。似乎你是以国务卿的官方身份进行了所有这些访问。”fYg世界播


Tester and Takano also pointed to Wilkie's recent trips to Maine and Montana as potentially problematic. During both visits, Wilkie appeared alongside Republican incumbents and praised their work on veterans issues in public statements, according to the letter. fYg世界播

泰斯特和高野还指出威尔基最近去缅因州和蒙大拿州的旅行有潜在的问题。根据这封信,在这两次访问期间,威尔基都与共和党现任议员一起出现,并在公开声明中赞扬了他们在退伍军人问题上的工作。fYg世界播
