Pence Doctor Reportedly Raised Concerns About Ronny Jackson Last Year

Pence Doctor Reportedly Raised Concerns About Ronny Jackson Last Year

The White House pushed back on reports that White House physician Ronny Jackson would not be returning to his role after a string of reports about his conduct led him to withdraw from consideration to head up the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Sean Conley, a Navy officer who stood in for Jackson while he was preparing for confirmation hearings, will continue as White House physician.

The allegations were based on interviews with more than 20 current and former colleagues, the senator said.

The president also wrote that "Tester's statements on Admiral Jackson" were as baseless as special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 election - a probe he derided as "A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!" earlier this month. "Despite published reports, there are no personnel announcements at this time". "I've never seen a better man taken down by a more disgusting group of people in my life".

When Donald Trump nominated him to run the VA - a odd choice, to be sure - suddenly Ronny Jackson was a boozing, pill-tossing danger to everyone, especially behind the wheel of Secret Service vehicles.

The White House continually defended Jackson as his nomination cratered on Capitol Hill this week.

Journalists have called for an apology as well including Fox News's Ed Henry, NBC's Andrea Mitchell and MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski . However, we can expect to see a lot more of Wolf going forward, a young woman whose future is far brighter than Trump's.

CNN had reported allegations that Jackson drunkenly banged on the hotel room door of a female employee and that Secret Service personnel intervened out of concern that he would wake Obama. The president announced the move before the White House had a chance to do the sort of thorough vetting typically performed on Cabinet-level nominees.

Some names being tossed around for the VA spot now that Dr. Ronny Jackson has withdrawn are: Ascension President and CEO Anthony Tersigni, Cleveland Clinic CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove, Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.), and former Rep. Jeff Miller (R-Fla.).

On Monday, Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said the rear admiral is on active duty, and is still working with the White House medical unit.

"The migrant "caravan" that is openly defying our border shows how weak & ineffective USA immigration laws are", Trump tweeted. Tester's staff has yet to release documentation supporting the accusations, and a Secret Service statement on Friday said the agency had found no evidence to support one of the specific allegations.

Jackson has denied all of the allegations and returned to work in the White House medical unit. The President kept up the attack at a rally in Michigan Saturday night, saying, "I know things about Tester that I could say, too".
