A Defense comptroller reported wrongdoing at the Defense Information Systems Agency and was removed from his position. Now, Sens. Chuck Grassley and Mark Warner want Defense Secretary Ash Carter to launch a full investigation.

As part of this week's Legal Loop, Lynne Bernabei, a partner at the law firm Bernabei and Watchel, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to further explore this case.
