The Washington Examiner tried to question Eric Shinseki, secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, after he testified in front of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs Thursday.

Shinseki refused to talk, other than to ask the reporter’s name and directing questions to committee members.

A member of Shinseki’s staff stood between the reporter and the secretary, repeatedly trying to intervene.

The audio of the one-sided interview is in the video above.
