Memphis VA whistleblower fired a day before Trump signed bill protecting whistleblowers

  He said he used profanity in a one-on-one meeting.
 Records provided by Higgins related to his ongoing dispute over treatment indicate he was repeatedly accused of not following directions, creating a hostile work environment and other infractions.
