PHOENIX, AZ (NBC) - Embattled secretary Eric Shinseki is on thin ice as more lawmakers insist he resign.

VA secretary Shinseki speaks publicly for the first time since the VA's Inspector General found 17,00 vets in Phoenix haven't even been placed on the official waiting list for an appointment.

More than 100 lawmakers, Democrats and Republicans, now want Shinseki to resign.
