Trump's Former VA Nominee Won't Return as White House Physician

Trump's Former VA Nominee Won't Return as White House Physician

Trump's Former VA Nominee Won't Return as White House Physician

He said "false allegations" against him have become a distraction. Without the histrionics or name-calling so frequently deployed in Washington now.

Trump said he'd called Jackson earlier Friday and told him that he was "an American hero" because he'd "exposed the system for some disgusting things".

He has a proven track record of working for our veterans and rising above political games to push through gridlock and deliver for the VA.

Following Adm. Jackson's announcement, Senator Jon Tester posted a message on Facebook reaffirming his commitment to "make sure the veterans of this nation get a strong, thoroughly vetted leader who will fight for them".

The newspaper reported that administration officials said Jackson has returned to a job with the White House medical unit.

Jackson is a U.S. Navy rear admiral who has been physician to three presidents. Trump's threat to divulge alleged secrets about Tester also comes just days after Trump admitted his involvement in a deal to pay $130,000 in hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told reporters Tuesday that he is not sure if Jackson will receive a hearing. Well, I know things about Tester that I could say too.

White House sources who continue to defend Ronny Jackson say that the issues between the Pences' doctor and Dr. Jackson were simply a difference of opinion between two doctors. Tester acknowledged in an MSNBC interview that not all of the allegations against Jackson were proven, but that they merited investigation. "I don't want to send him through a process like that", he said, referring to the customary vetting by Congress.

"I'm waiting to hear from both Chairman Isakson and from the administration what they believe the way forward should be and we'll take our cues from them".

Trump's administration is having, to say the least, an incredibly hard time getting seemingly well-qualified nominees through the Senate, as was evident this week with CIA Director Mike Pompeo's secretary of state nomination.

CNN reported that Jackson was banging on the hotel room door of a female colleague while under the influence, and the Secret Service intervened for fear he might wake up Obama.

The Democratic staff on the committee considering Jackson's nomination also claimed Jackson had doled out such a large supply of a prescription opioid that staffers panicked because they thought the drugs were missing.

Vice President Mike Pence's doctor accused Ronny Jackson of misconduct during a 2017 medical emergency involving the second lady, according to a report Monday.
