Politco: Ronny Jackson will not return as Trump's physician

WENY News - Donald Trump calls for Jon Tester to resign over Jackson opposit

The Montana Senator accused Jackson of a wide range of misconduct, from overprescribing medications to drunkenly wrecking his government vehicle.

Physician to the President Navy Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson during his meeting with Sen.

He said he had withdrawn his nomination to avoid becoming a "distraction" for Trump.

Tester already had been targeted by Republicans seeking to retain control of the Senate and the House in November's mid-term election.

As reported in a companion CNN report, allegations emerged last week that during an overseas trip in 2015, a drunken Jackson, who at the time was the White House physician, banged on the hotel room door of a female employee.

The Secret Service has said it can't find any record of the drunken behavior alleged. "The Secret Service is unable to verify (the truth is they deny) any of the phony Democrat fees which have completely devastated the fantastic Jackson household." - tweet Saturday afternoon.

After all, as Trump admitted, Adm. Jackson hadn't even asked for the job.

"It's not political", Tester told reporters late last week.

Trump's almost hour-and-a-half-long stump speech touched on many of his recognizable talking points, including: having respect for the American flag and standing for the national anthem; having a strong military and increasing military spending; the strength of the economy and the stock market; the need for more job training for the skilled trades and more vocational schools; and his persistent claims of bias and corruption in the Federal Bureau of Investigation as it has investigated Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election. But Dr. Jackson pulled his nomination on Thursday, when it became clear he was unlikely to be confirmed.

That was already causing Jackson problems on Capitol Hill even before lawmakers received allegations from current and former military service members who worked with him that he had created a toxic work environment, drunkenly wrecked a auto and maintained poor prescription records.




The same 2013 report also noted the perception among staff that Jackson "had blind ambitions to be the next physician to the president" and his actions were "purely politically driven for his self-advancement". The Democrat says the allegations were volunteered by over 20 current and former Jackson colleagues, and the lawmaker released them this week. "I can tell you that".

Furthermore, the implication of Tester's litany of accusations defies basic logic.

Was the whisper campaign that doomed Jackson's nomination just character assassination against a distinguished officer, or evidence of improper behavior from a man in a position of enormous public trust? A number of former Obama aides also came to Jackson's defense this week.

'What Jon Tester said about this man is a disgrace. It is hard to square this language about Jackson's character with the image painted by Tester.

Jackson withdrew his nomination on Tuesday, but in a string of Saturday morning tweets, Trump railed against Tester, arguing that he should leave office after treating Jackson unfairly.

Despite Montana's conservative tilt, Mr. Tester has appeared to be in good shape to win re-election, and he has expressed no regret and no public concern about the president's threats. He clearly failed to conduct due diligence on the veracity of his allegations before he attacked the integrity of an Admiral in the United States Navy in front of millions of people and used the credibility of the United States Senate to back it up.

That nomination had to go through the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, on which Tester sits.

President Trump on Saturday called on Sen.

"The Democrats don't care about our military, they don't care about our borders and I don't think they care much about crime", the president said.
