White House Releases Records Disputing Allegations Against Ronny Jackson

White House Releases Records Disputing Allegations Against Ronny Jackson”

Trump said the US was in the "eternal debt" of every service member standing behind him at the White House. Mr. Trump said Tester - who faces a tough election in November in a state where Mr. Trump's approval rating is among the highest - "should resign".

Jackson has denied the accusations, calling them "baseless and anonymous attacks" on his character and integrity that are "completely false and fabricated". "They are trying to destroy a man".

Jackson withdrew his name from consideration for the nomination Thursday before his position on Choice could be explored.

"Over the last 48 hours, media outlets have alleged that U.S. Secret Service personnel were forced to intervene during a Presidential foreign travel assignment in order to prevent disturbing (former) President Barack Obama", The Secret Service released in a statement.

White House officials were visibly dismayed Wednesday and Thursday as they watched Jackson suffer the blows of the allegations.

Veteran advocates and many lawmakers also had expressed concerns about Jackson's lack of management experience, and some have anxious that he would capitulate to Trump's goal of outsourcing more veteran services.

While Jackson will not become the next VA secretary, he will continue his service as President Trump's physician.

"What are we left to believe, that this man was a fantastic doctor worthy of being promoted in the Navy - an all-around great guy as long as he was the doctor to President Obama - but as soon as he became the doctor to Donald Trump, he was a bum, a heavy drinker?"

Instead, the White House said, records show that in one instance an upset driver punched out a window on Jackson's vehicle during a trip to Camp David, Md., and in another case, a side-view mirror was hit by a passing truck. The White House asked for the past two and a half years of audits. The president was said to have been captivated by his doctor's appearance in the White House briefing room, where, after Trump's physical, Jackson extolled Trump's fitness and cognitive acuity. Tester spokeswoman Marnee Banks said the office would not comment until it knew more about the White House records.

The committee's Republican chairman, Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., who agreed to postpone Jackson's confirmation hearing while lawmakers investigated the allegations. "It is my constitutional responsibility to make sure the veterans of this nation get a strong, thoroughly vetted leader who will fight for them", he said. "Not fair, Tester!", Trump added.

The main criticism of Jackson was that he lacked the managerial experience to head a department with more than 360,000 employes, 1,200 facilities and a budget of more than $200 billion, serving more than nine million vets annually.
