The Wall Street Journal: Head of Veterans Affairs may be next to be ousted from Trump administration

President Donald Trump is considering replacing Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin with candidates including Energy Secretary Rick Perry, according to an administration official, after an inspector general’s report last month said Shulkin had misspent taxpayer money during an official trip to Europe last year.

The official said the discussions of replacing Shulkin are “not very far along,” and another person familiar with the matter said other names are also in the mix. That person said Perry’s wasn’t the name that came up the most frequently in the discussions.
