House Republicans Get Secret Briefing from Koch Veterans Group

Submitted by Jessica Mason on March 10, 2016 - 1:47pm

The Koch brothers' group targeting veterans gave a secret briefing to U.S. House Republicans on "Reforming Veterans Health Care" last week, according to an invitation to the meeting provided to CMD.

The Kochs' Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) has been in the news lately for a six-figure ad campaign in Nevada supporting Rep. Joe Heck's campaign for Senate.

The politically-active nonprofit does not disclose its funding sources, but tax documents reveal that since 2011 CVA and its related organizations have received nearly $21 million from Freedom Partners, the Koch brothers' "secret bank," and almost $2 million from the Koch-linked TC4 Trust.
