Senator Cramer on defense secretary's hospital stay: "it's so egregious"

(Fargo, ND) -- Senator Kevin Cramer says he is among senate leaders looking for answers regarding the recent secretive hospital stay for Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. 

"A group of us on the Senate Armed Services Committee have sent a letter to the White House and the Pentagon asking for a complete timeline. It's so egregious it's hard almost to comprehend," said Cramer. 

Lloyd Austin was recently hospitalized and his aides waited for days before telling the White House. 

One of Austin's top deputies was temporarily in charge of the defense department while she was on vacation in Puerto Rico.
