Trump says Democrat should quit over VA nomination brouhaha

02 May 2018

Doctor Ronny Jackson has returned to the White House medical unit, but not to the role as physician to the president.

Navy officer Sean Conley took over as Trump's personal physician last month and will continue in the role, Politico reported, citing the senior administration officials.

On Wednesday, Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., the ranking member of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee released a two-page statement detailing allegations against Jackson from 23 unnamed individuals.

After Tester's negative comments about the prospective VA Secretary Ronny Jackson, after which Jackson withdrew his name from consideration, President Trump called on Tester to resign from office.

They said their allegations were based on conversations with 23 of Jackson's current and former colleagues at the White House Medical Unit.

Trump tweeted early Saturday that the allegations "are proving false". Trump defended his top doctor saying he's an "American hero" and called on Tester to resign. And on Capitol Hill, Democrats and Republicans questioned Trump's decision, made largely out of his personal affinity for Jackson, and were skeptical the White House physician had the experience to lead the sprawling agency.

"Senator Tester is perhaps the most vulnerable Democratic Senator in the 208 election", said McHammond. "A awful thing that we in D.C. must live with, just like phony Russian Collusion. Very dishonest and sick!" "Not fair, Tester!", Trump added...

The records, including police reports, show Jackson was in three minor vehicle incidents in government vehicles during the last five years, but none involved the use of alcohol and he was not found to be at fault.

Separately, the Secret Service said it has no evidence to support an allegation that its personnel intervened to prevent Jackson from disturbing former President Barack Obama during a foreign trip in 2015.

He released a statement calling the allegations against him false and fabricated.

In a statement, Tester said he would "never stop fighting".

Trump named Jackson to replace David Shulkin, the former VA secretary, in March after the department's inspector general released a report faulting Shulkin for a trip he took to Europe previous year with his wife, whose travel expenses were paid by taxpayer funds.
