Ronny Jackson Won't Be Trump's Doctor Again After Misconduct Allegations

After Sen. Jon Tester played a lead role in sinking the nomination of Donald Trump's personal physician Ronny Jackson to be Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Trump warned that Tester will have a " big price to pay", and a Republican senator contended Tester "poked the bear".

A Pentagon spokesperson told the Washington Post the department is weighing whether they should investigate accusations leveled against the president's personal physician Ronny Jackson, including that he was drunk at work and fostered a "hostile" work environment.

Sean Conley, a Navy officer who stood in for Jackson while he was preparing for confirmation hearings, will continue as White House physician. Unreal' enthusiasm, knowledge and love at rally Trump: I know things about Tester that would cause him to lose an election Trump: Tester "dishonest and sick' for pushing allegations against VA nominee MORE (D-Mont.), who has fallen into the president's crosshairs for releasing allegations that led to the withdrawal of Trump's pick for Veterans' Affairs secretary".

Two of the accusations - that Dr. Jackson drunkenly banged on a female colleague's hotel door in the middle of the night and wrecked a government vehicle - were busted over the weekend. They described Jackson as "toxic", "abusive" and "flat-out unethical" - while others said he'd engaged in reckless prescribing practices and multiple incidents of drunkenness.

ABC's tweet makes it sound as though Jackson accepted a demotion. He also insinuated that Tester himself could be the target of allegations: "I know things about Tester that I could say, too".

Jackson bowed out last week after Montana Sen.

The White House medical unit that Jackson ran successfully passed regular controlled substance audits, according to the records for the last three years.

"Tester should resign", Bongino said on "Fox & Friends". "And if I said 'em, he'd never be elected again". The Secret Service disputed the allegations of door-banging and the White House, according to the Washington Post, said officials reviewed Jackson's vehicle records and found "three minor incidents" but "no evidence" that Jackson had wrecked a auto. Clearly, Jackson should have been vetted, just as any presidential nominee should head to Capitol Hill.

Jon Tester Tries To Move Past Ronny Jackson Controversy The ad doesn't reference the Jackson controversy, but Tester's political consultants must know portraying the Senator as a longtime veterans advocate could help inoculate him from charges of politicizing the Jackson nomination.
