Idaho Arrest Affidavit Traces Path Of Suspected Killer of 4 Students

True Crime Reporter

Homicide detectives and even killers categorize the slain four University of Idaho students as “shiny” victims.  They were young, innocent, and attractive.   John Moriarty, the former Inspector General of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, says such cases motivate investigators to go the extra mile to solve the crime. “It's the ultimate good versus evil,” said Moriarty. Investigators used sophisticated techniques detailed in an arrest warrant affidavit, including DNA, cell phone data, and ubiquitous video surveillance cameras, to charge  28-year-old Bryan Kohberger with murdering four University of Idaho students in their off-campus home on November 13, 2022.  If Kohberer, a Ph.D. criminology student at the University of Washington, is convicted, it will prove the old adage that some criminals return to the scene of the crime. In this episode of True Crime Reporter®, John Moriarty and investigative reporter Robert Riggs walk listeners through details contained in the arrest warrant. Moriarty, the former Inspector General of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, used the same means to hunt down fugitives wanted for murder and violent crimes.  Plus, he wrote countless arrest and search warrant affidavits, and Riggs relied on such affidavits as the factual basis for his crime reporting.  You may recall that Moriarty, a transplanted Irish cop from New York City, is featured in True Crime Reporter®'s series about serial killer Kenneth McDuff and the Telly Award-winning television documentary on Fox Nation streaming titled Freed To Kill. Kohberger made a brief court appearance on January 5th of 2023, with cuts on his face raising questions if the suspect's alleged victim's had fought back. Based on the review of the arrest warrant affidavit by Moriarty and Riggs, you will hear their thoughts about a possible motive for the murders.

At least 68 people were killed when an airplane went down in central Nepal. The crash was the country's third-deadliest and worst in 30 years. CNN has obtained video from the last minutes inside the cabin before the plane went down as investigators are still searching for a cause. CNN Aviation Analyst Mary Schiavo is a former Inspector General for U.S. Department of Transportation. She joins AC360 to discuss if the video from inside the plane will be helpful in the investigation. Plus, the White House counsel's office says there are no visitor logs that track who comes and goes from President Biden's Wilmington, Delaware home. Republicans want all the information relating to the misplaced classified documents from Biden's time as vice president be turned over.

The Seattle “Public” Schools is suing social media companies for making kids mentally ill and unhappy. Yep - these ARE the same “schools” that work to make kids happy by teaching then they are walking disease bags with no biological sex, who are are either vile racists or helpless victims racism . . . that is, of course, when they even allow kids in the buildings. That is a happiness con. A coalition of mental health providers released a study that said some of the factors that cause depression and suicidal intent in people--especially young people--are, no strong family connections, no mission greater than self and no “authoritative community” that promotes consistent morals and principles. Can we all put our heads together and think of another name for an “authoritative community” that teachers consistent morals and principles that emphasizes family and mission greater than self? But, make sure you don't say the c-word. Church. What does God say? Hebrews 3:12-13 12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13 But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. Hebrews 12:1-4 12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. God Disciplines His Children 4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. Hebrews 12:14-17 Warning and Encouragement 14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. 15 See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. 16 See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. 17 Afterward, as you know, when he wanted to inherit this blessing, he was rejected.

Erin Bliss on The Telehealth Risk Report [Podcast]

By Adam Turteltaub In December 2020 the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee (PRAC) issued the report:  Insights on Telehealth Use and Program Integrity Risks Across Selected Health Care Programs During the Pandemic. To better understand the PRAC and the report, we spoke with Erin Bliss, Assistant Inspector General for Evaluation and Inspections at the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Health & Human Services. As she explains in this podcast, the PRAC was formed as an outcome of the CARES Act. Its mission is to promote transparency and coordinate oversight of the federal coronavirus response; prevent and detect fraud, waste, misuse and mismanagement; and identify risks across agencies. The Offices of Inspector General from HHS, Justice, Veterans Affairs, Defense, Labor and Office of Personnel Management are all PRAC members. The report revealed how great an increase there was in telehealth. In the first year of the pandemic, telehealth usage increased from roughly 3 million people across six federal programs to 37 million. This change was largely the result of an expansion of the Medicare rules, which previously had limited telehealth to rural communities during in-office visits. While few today dispute the value of telehealth, that does not mean its use has not come without challenges. More data, the report notes, is still needed for oversight of telehealth's use and impact, particularly on quality of care. In addition, data collection policies need to be improved since many providers have kept only rudimentary information. At the same time, the report identified activity that indicated waste, fraud and abuse. These included billing the same service twice, billing for extremely high amounts of telehealth services, billing for services that did not seem appropriate for telehealth, and billing at the highest, most expensive level. If there is good news to these findings, it is that the risks are ones already familiar to healthcare providers. Established risk management and compliance tools will likely be useful. Listen in to learn more about what the report revealed and what steps you can take, including active monitoring, to ensure the integrity of your organization's telehealth services.

With findings so explosive, it was labeled top secret and locked away for some 37 years in a safe before its general release to the public.

Maybe you feel a sense of dread anytime you scroll through your social media feeds or turn on the news. Maybe you're stressing about the holidays because you know there are going to be some inevitably uncomfortable discussions surrounding politics, hot button issues, and religion. If any of this sounds familiar, this episode is going to lower your blood pressure and reassure you that while these discussions are undeniably difficult, they don't have to cost you your peace or your relationships. Julie Walsh served for three years in the Inspector General's office of the U.S. General Services Administration and for five years as Associate Director, Social Concerns of the Maryland Catholic Conference. For the past twelve years, Julie has been a stay-at-home mother to (now) five young children. She is a podcaster and writer advocating for respectful dialogue over political tribalism. Julie and Katie have a candid discussion about their own changing views over the years, in the areas of faith, politics, friendships, relationships, etc. and how this has complicated their approach to what are often presented as one-dimensional issues.  As we near the end of Advent and celebrate the Incarnation in Christmas, let's remember to always put the dignity of the human person first. An encouraging, thought-provoking episode for you.

Raised Republican, she worked mostly with Democrats when she was a lobbyist for the Catholic Church on poverty, immigration, and health care matters. Today she finds herself politically homeless, but not politically aimless. Julie has found purpose in encouraging people to look beyond labels, to focus more on the moral implications of politics than the partisan horse race.  You can follow Julie on Instagram @julievwalsh and you can get to know her better on her podcast, More Than Politics, and her blog, These Walls.   https://www.instagram.com/julievwalsh/?hl=en https://morethanpolitics.buzzsprout.com/ https://thesewallsblog.com/ --- Many thanks to Chris Marquette for the Christmas carols at the end, played on the guitar.

The theft from the Chengdu-based hacking group which goes by the name APT41 is the first instance of pandemic fraud tied to a foreign government that the U.S. has publicly acknowledged, and it may just be the tip of the iceberg. The secret service declined to comment on any other potential instances of state-sponsored fraud, but said that there are more than 1,000 ongoing investigations into the stealing of Covid relief funds involving domestic and international cyber criminals, acknowledging that APT41 is "a notable player." It is unclear at this point whether the Chinese government directed APT41 to commit this fraud or simply looked the other way. "I've never seen them target government money before," the head of intelligence analysis at the cybersecurity firm Mandiant, John Hultquist said. "That would be an escalation." The Secret Service considers APT41 to be a "Chinese state-sponsored, cyber threat group that is highly adept at conducting espionage missions and financial crimes for personal gain." Officials believe that the primary purpose of state-sponsored groups like this is to gather sensitive information from American individuals, businesses, and institutions that could be used by the Chinese for espionage purposes. At this point in time, law enforcement officials and counterintelligence experts and almost certain that every American has had all or most of their personal data taken by the Chinese government in one way or another. Labor Department Office of Inspector General has estimated that more than $160 billion of the $872.5 billion set aside for Federal pandemic unemployment funds has potentially been siphoned off by cybercriminals, though some individual states estimate higher amounts. There are other estimates that put that number as high as $350 billion. https://www.dailywire.com/news/european-country-considers-banning-electric-vehicle-travel-amid-energy-crisis-report European Country Considers Banning Electric Vehicle Travel Amid Energy Crisis: Report Switzerland is considering banning electric vehicles for non-essential travel this winter as the continent deals with an energy crisis sparked by Russia’s war in Ukraine. The Telegraph reported that government officials have already drafted plans to conserve energy that could include limiting heat in buildings to no more than 68 degrees Fahrenheit and reducing the number of hours stores can be open. Stricter measures could be enacted, including banning large indoor gatherings like sporting events, concerts, and theatre events, the report said. Switzerland relies heavily on hydroelectric power, which constitutes nearly two-thirds of its energy supply, the excess of which it exports during the time of year that it can generate the most electricity from rain and snowfall, the report said. It then typically is forced to import energy during the rest of the year as its nuclear resources, which it has been working to phase out, and its fossil fuel resources are not enough to meet demand. The country has created a two-tier system for dealing with the energy shortage: emergency and crisis. When in the “emergency” tier, there are three levels of restrictions, and in the “crisis” tier, there are two levels. Electric vehicles would face restrictions in the third level of the emergency tier. In late August, officials in California unveiled a plan to phase out new gas-powered cars and days later asked residents to avoid charging their electric vehicles in the interest of not overwhelming the power grid during a heat wave. The warnings of low grid capacity came days after the California Air Resources Board issued new rules requiring 35% of new vehicles to produce zero emissions by 2026 — a standard that will rise to a 68% benchmark by 2030 and a 100% level by 2035. Yet experts have warned that the state’s electric grid will require significant upgrades to manage a rapid transition away from internal combustion vehicles. “Today, most people charge their electric cars when they come home in the evening — when electricity demand is typically at its peak,” according to researchers at Cornell University’s College of Engineering. “If left unmanaged, the power demanded from many electric vehicles charging simultaneously in the evening will amplify existing peak loads, potentially outstripping the grid’s current capacity to meet demand.” https://www.foxnews.com/politics/canada-offered-assisted-suicide-paralympian-veteran-wanted-wheelchair-lift-installed-report Canada offered assisted suicide to a Paralympian veteran who wanted a wheelchair lift installed Canada's Veterans Affairs office offered to assist a Paralympian and veteran to commit suicide when she sought to have a wheelchair lift installed in her home, the woman told lawmakers last week. Christine Gauthier, a 52-year-old retired corporal who competed in the 2016 Paralympics at Rio De Janeiro, testified to lawmakers that a VA official had offered — in writing — to provide her with a medically-assisted suicide kit. The case officer remains unnamed but reportedly made similar offers to at least three other veterans, according to the Independent. "I have a letter saying that if you’re so desperate, madam, we can offer you MAID, medical assistance in dying," Gauthier said in a hearing before the House of Commons veterans affairs committee. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned the incident in a public statement on Friday after Gauthier said she personally wrote him a letter on the issue. "We are following up with investigations and we are changing protocols to ensure what should seem obvious to all of us: that it is not the place of Veterans Affairs Canada, who are supposed to be there to support those people who stepped up to serve their country, to offer them medical assistance in dying," Trudeau said. Canada first approved medically-assisted suicide in 2016, and the parameters around allowing it have since loosened. The law originally legalized assisted suicide only for those facing imminent death, but it now also includes those who suffered severe pain or disabilities, according to the Independent. Gauthier's story comes just weeks after a Canadian fashion company glorified assisted suicide in a commercial. Canadian fashion company La Maison Simons promoted the "beauty" in voluntary euthanasia in a promotional video titled "All is Beauty." The ad includes a voiceover from Jennyfer Hatch, a 37-year-old Canadian woman who voluntarily euthanized herself after suffering from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Simons says that the ad aimed to "help people to reconnect to each other and to this hope and optimism," which he says "is going to be needed if we're going to build the sort of communities and spaces where we want to live and that are enjoyable to live in." "The ‘All is Beauty’ campaign has come to an end this week. Simons is now entering their annual holiday sprint," a spokesperson for Simons told Fox News Digital. "In this context, all of their teams' efforts are focused on in-store and web holiday activities." https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-michael-avenatti-sentenced-to-168-months?utm_campaign=64487 Michael Avenatti sentenced to 168 months Disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti has been sentenced to 168 months in prison for four counts of wire fraud. This 14 year sentence is in addition to the five years he is currently serving for other charges, including stealing almost $300,000 in book-advance money from his then-client Stormy Daniels In June, Avenatti plead guilty to four counts of wire fraud and a single count of tax fraud, and admitted to misappropriating funds from clients totaling around $10 million. During his sentencing on Monday, Avenatti appeared solemn, often keeping his head down and hands in front if him while hearing statements from two of his victims, according to Law and Crime News' senior reporter Meghann Cuniff, who was documenting the proceedings. "It is now time to pay his debts to the victims, the government and society," the Judge said, right before sentencing him. Avenatti became widely known across the country as the lawyer representing adult film star Stormy Daniels in her failed lawsuit against former President Donald Trump, after it was revealed that she was paid $130,000 in hush money before the 2016 presidential election to keep quiet about an alleged sexual encounter she had with Trump years earlier Dubbed the "creepy porn lawyer" by Tucker Carlson, Avenatti was the darling of the mainstream media for a time, seen as a hero "David" for going after "Goliath" Trump, before Avenatti's fall from grace. In July of 2021, he was also convicted of extortion after trying to get Nike to pay him $25 million that he claimed he was owed on behalf of a Los Angeles youth basketball team. He was sentenced to 30 months in prison and wept hysterically in response. On top of the numerous fraud charges against him, he also admitted to blocking IRS efforts to collect unpaid payroll taxes of an estimated $5 million, include payroll taxes that had been withheld from employee paychecks of a Tully's Coffee operated by an Avenatti-owned company.

In the video, the man, who has been identified as Austin Willenbring, can be seen in a shoving altercation with some unknown individuals, who eventually lift him up and throw him over the side of the bridge railing to a concrete walkway below. In the video, the men can be seen then dragging Willenbring to the railing before throwing him over. Willenbring says that he suffered serious injuries as a result of his fall, including a concussion and broken ribs. Even still, he says that he and his sister were able to track down and identify the men who had thrown him over the railing, and even though they were able to make a positive ID to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputies, and had video of the entire incident, police refused to make an arrest. WCAL also reports that there is no record that the man identified by Willenbring has yet been arrested by police or charged with any crime in connection with the incident. Inglewood police told WCAL they are "still investigating" the incident, and Inglewood mayor James Butts defended the city's response to the incident, saying, "Here's the reality: When you have hundreds of thousands of people in one place, when you have alcohol involved, you're gonna have fights. It's an unfortunate fact of life. We have to put things in perspective, six million patrons in three years, three altercations." Willenbring says that he plans to cancel his season ticket package because he no longer feels safe going to games.

The theft from the Chengdu-based hacking group which goes by the name APT41 is the first instance of pandemic fraud tied to a foreign government that the U.S. has publicly acknowledged, and it may just be the tip of the iceberg. The secret service declined to comment on any other potential instances of state-sponsored fraud, but said that there are more than 1,000 ongoing investigations into the stealing of Covid relief funds involving domestic and international cyber criminals, acknowledging that APT41 is "a notable player." It is unclear at this point whether the Chinese government directed APT41 to commit this fraud or simply looked the other way. "I've never seen them target government money before," the head of intelligence analysis at the cybersecurity firm Mandiant, John Hultquist said. "That would be an escalation." The Secret Service considers APT41 to be a "Chinese state-sponsored, cyber threat group that is highly adept at conducting espionage missions and financial crimes for personal gain." Officials believe that the primary purpose of state-sponsored groups like this is to gather sensitive information from American individuals, businesses, and institutions that could be used by the Chinese for espionage purposes. At this point in time, law enforcement officials and counterintelligence experts and almost certain that every American has had all or most of their personal data taken by the Chinese government in one way or another. Labor Department Office of Inspector General has estimated that more than $160 billion of the $872.5 billion set aside for Federal pandemic unemployment funds has potentially been siphoned off by cybercriminals, though some individual states estimate higher amounts. There are other estimates that put that number as high as $350 billion. https://www.dailywire.com/news/european-country-considers-banning-electric-vehicle-travel-amid-energy-crisis-report European Country Considers Banning Electric Vehicle Travel Amid Energy Crisis: Report Switzerland is considering banning electric vehicles for non-essential travel this winter as the continent deals with an energy crisis sparked by Russia’s war in Ukraine. The Telegraph reported that government officials have already drafted plans to conserve energy that could include limiting heat in buildings to no more than 68 degrees Fahrenheit and reducing the number of hours stores can be open. Stricter measures could be enacted, including banning large indoor gatherings like sporting events, concerts, and theatre events, the report said. Switzerland relies heavily on hydroelectric power, which constitutes nearly two-thirds of its energy supply, the excess of which it exports during the time of year that it can generate the most electricity from rain and snowfall, the report said. It then typically is forced to import energy during the rest of the year as its nuclear resources, which it has been working to phase out, and its fossil fuel resources are not enough to meet demand. The country has created a two-tier system for dealing with the energy shortage: emergency and crisis. When in the “emergency” tier, there are three levels of restrictions, and in the “crisis” tier, there are two levels. Electric vehicles would face restrictions in the third level of the emergency tier. In late August, officials in California unveiled a plan to phase out new gas-powered cars and days later asked residents to avoid charging their electric vehicles in the interest of not overwhelming the power grid during a heat wave. The warnings of low grid capacity came days after the California Air Resources Board issued new rules requiring 35% of new vehicles to produce zero emissions by 2026 — a standard that will rise to a 68% benchmark by 2030 and a 100% level by 2035. Yet experts have warned that the state’s electric grid will require significant upgrades to manage a rapid transition away from internal combustion vehicles. “Today, most people charge their electric cars when they come home in the evening — when electricity demand is typically at its peak,” according to researchers at Cornell University’s College of Engineering. “If left unmanaged, the power demanded from many electric vehicles charging simultaneously in the evening will amplify existing peak loads, potentially outstripping the grid’s current capacity to meet demand.” https://www.foxnews.com/politics/canada-offered-assisted-suicide-paralympian-veteran-wanted-wheelchair-lift-installed-report Canada offered assisted suicide to a Paralympian veteran who wanted a wheelchair lift installed Canada's Veterans Affairs office offered to assist a Paralympian and veteran to commit suicide when she sought to have a wheelchair lift installed in her home, the woman told lawmakers last week. Christine Gauthier, a 52-year-old retired corporal who competed in the 2016 Paralympics at Rio De Janeiro, testified to lawmakers that a VA official had offered — in writing — to provide her with a medically-assisted suicide kit. The case officer remains unnamed but reportedly made similar offers to at least three other veterans, according to the Independent. "I have a letter saying that if you’re so desperate, madam, we can offer you MAID, medical assistance in dying," Gauthier said in a hearing before the House of Commons veterans affairs committee. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned the incident in a public statement on Friday after Gauthier said she personally wrote him a letter on the issue. "We are following up with investigations and we are changing protocols to ensure what should seem obvious to all of us: that it is not the place of Veterans Affairs Canada, who are supposed to be there to support those people who stepped up to serve their country, to offer them medical assistance in dying," Trudeau said. Canada first approved medically-assisted suicide in 2016, and the parameters around allowing it have since loosened. The law originally legalized assisted suicide only for those facing imminent death, but it now also includes those who suffered severe pain or disabilities, according to the Independent. Gauthier's story comes just weeks after a Canadian fashion company glorified assisted suicide in a commercial. Canadian fashion company La Maison Simons promoted the "beauty" in voluntary euthanasia in a promotional video titled "All is Beauty." The ad includes a voiceover from Jennyfer Hatch, a 37-year-old Canadian woman who voluntarily euthanized herself after suffering from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Simons says that the ad aimed to "help people to reconnect to each other and to this hope and optimism," which he says "is going to be needed if we're going to build the sort of communities and spaces where we want to live and that are enjoyable to live in." "The ‘All is Beauty’ campaign has come to an end this week. Simons is now entering their annual holiday sprint," a spokesperson for Simons told Fox News Digital. "In this context, all of their teams' efforts are focused on in-store and web holiday activities." https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-michael-avenatti-sentenced-to-168-months?utm_campaign=64487 Michael Avenatti sentenced to 168 months Disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti has been sentenced to 168 months in prison for four counts of wire fraud. This 14 year sentence is in addition to the five years he is currently serving for other charges, including stealing almost $300,000 in book-advance money from his then-client Stormy Daniels In June, Avenatti plead guilty to four counts of wire fraud and a single count of tax fraud, and admitted to misappropriating funds from clients totaling around $10 million. During his sentencing on Monday, Avenatti appeared solemn, often keeping his head down and hands in front if him while hearing statements from two of his victims, according to Law and Crime News' senior reporter Meghann Cuniff, who was documenting the proceedings. "It is now time to pay his debts to the victims, the government and society," the Judge said, right before sentencing him. Avenatti became widely known across the country as the lawyer representing adult film star Stormy Daniels in her failed lawsuit against former President Donald Trump, after it was revealed that she was paid $130,000 in hush money before the 2016 presidential election to keep quiet about an alleged sexual encounter she had with Trump years earlier Dubbed the "creepy porn lawyer" by Tucker Carlson, Avenatti was the darling of the mainstream media for a time, seen as a hero "David" for going after "Goliath" Trump, before Avenatti's fall from grace. In July of 2021, he was also convicted of extortion after trying to get Nike to pay him $25 million that he claimed he was owed on behalf of a Los Angeles youth basketball team. He was sentenced to 30 months in prison and wept hysterically in response. On top of the numerous fraud charges against him, he also admitted to blocking IRS efforts to collect unpaid payroll taxes of an estimated $5 million, include payroll taxes that had been withheld from employee paychecks of a Tully's Coffee operated by an Avenatti-owned company.

In the video, the man, who has been identified as Austin Willenbring, can be seen in a shoving altercation with some unknown individuals, who eventually lift him up and throw him over the side of the bridge railing to a concrete walkway below. In the video, the men can be seen then dragging Willenbring to the railing before throwing him over. Willenbring says that he suffered serious injuries as a result of his fall, including a concussion and broken ribs. Even still, he says that he and his sister were able to track down and identify the men who had thrown him over the railing, and even though they were able to make a positive ID to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputies, and had video of the entire incident, police refused to make an arrest. WCAL also reports that there is no record that the man identified by Willenbring has yet been arrested by police or charged with any crime in connection with the incident. Inglewood police told WCAL they are "still investigating" the incident, and Inglewood mayor James Butts defended the city's response to the incident, saying, "Here's the reality: When you have hundreds of thousands of people in one place, when you have alcohol involved, you're gonna have fights. It's an unfortunate fact of life. We have to put things in perspective, six million patrons in three years, three altercations." Willenbring says that he plans to cancel his season ticket package because he no longer feels safe going to games.

Yesterday, 12/4/22, was the 1st planned terrorist attack by right wing extremist groups (white power, Neo Nazi, etc) that has been planned by these groups to bring America's power grid down. All it takes is to attack just five power substations and the entire grid on the eastern seaboard can be brought down putting America into the dark ages. This info has been published in Inspector General reports for quite some time and Homeland Security and the FBI have talked about the "possibilities" since 2007. The reality is it is HERE NOW. What is CONGRESS, the FBI and HOMELAND SECURITY doing to prevent this, to harden the the grid, these substations from such attacks? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. In the meantime, you might want to purchase a gas generator as a back up so you can have some power like the 100,000 citizens of Charlottesville, and surrounding communities are now having to deal with. Laws need to be changed and hardened and laws against being able to join such home grown terror groups need to be passed.

The Semiannual Report to Congress summarizes the VA Office of Inspector General's (OIG) oversight efforts from April 1 through September 30, 2022. For this six-month period, the VA OIG identified more than $1.4 billion in monetary impact for a return on investment of $16 for every dollar spent on oversight—which brings the fiscal year 2022 totals to nearly $4.6 billion in monetary impact for a return on investment of $24 for every dollar spent on oversight. These figures do not include the inestimable value of the healthcare oversight work completed to advance patient safety and quality care. During this six-month period, the Office of Investigations opened 178 cases and closed 213 (most of which were opened in prior periods), with efforts leading to 135 arrests. The OIG hotline received and triaged 18,396 contacts to help identify wrongdoing and address concerns with VA activities. Collectively, the work during this period resulted in 599 administrative sanctions and actions. The Office of Audits and Evaluations (OAE) produced 44 publications, including five VA management advisory memorandums that highlighted concerns requiring VA's prompt attention. Contracting review teams also conducted 47 preaward and postaward contract reviews to help VA obtain fair and reasonable pricing on products and services. OAE reports for the six-month period resulted in 198 recommendations. The Office of Special Reviews (OSR) issued five publications, including three reports in response to allegations of senior VA officials' misconduct, which reflect the VA OIG's commitment to holding VA employees accountable for wrongdoing and promoting the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct. OSR also issued two joint publications: a VA management advisory memorandum with OAE regarding concerns with the calculation of patient wait time data, and a report with the Department of Defense (DoD) OIG, focusing on efforts by DoD and VA to achieve electronic health record system interoperability. The Office of Healthcare Inspections (OHI) maintained a strong focus on leadership and organizational risks, suicide risk reduction, quality of care, and patient safety. OHI published 19 healthcare inspection reports; 17 Comprehensive Healthcare Inspection Program (CHIP) reports, including three CHIP summary reports; four national healthcare reviews; and its first Care in the Community report that examined key clinical and administrative processes associated with providing quality VA and community care.
