RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia Congressman Dave Brat plans to meet with the McGuire whistleblowers who spoke out to 8News about those deadly dog experiments at the McGuire VA Medical Center in Richmond.

Last week, the whistleblowers described to 8News that the dogs were “distraught,” “nervous” and “in pain.”

Rep. Brat reached out to the two whistleblowers and plans to meet with them on Thursday.

This comes just days after Brat and fellow House lawmakers voted to defund painful research using dogs at the VA.
