Pence's Physician Allegedly Behind Attacks Against Trump's Doctor

Jon Tester

Senators on the Veterans Affairs Committee abruptly postponed Jackson's scheduled appearance early last week when Tester announced the committee was reviewing the allegations.

Trump told reporters initially following Testers' announcement of the allegations against Jackson that he wouldn't continue pursuing the position, given the nature of the situation.

Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson is not going back to being President Donald Trump's personal physician. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) shared Pena's allegations with the media, including charges that Jackson created a hostile work environment, drank on the job, and improperly handed out prescription drugs, including the sleep aid Ambien for overseas trips. Jackson has denied the allegations. The Secret Service said it has found no evidence of an alleged vehicle accident involving drunken driving, one of the claims released by Tester.

Trump has aggressively defended Jackson since the charges were made public last week by Democrats on the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee, who say they spoke with more than 20 people who worked with Jackson.On Saturday, Trump called on the panel's top Democrat, Sen.

Jackson, who also served as White House physician during the Obama administration, was nominated to serve as VA secretary after the previous agency chief, David Shulkin, was fired.

Before leaving for a rally in Michigan, Trump directed another tweet at Tester, likening the senator's claims against Jackson to the "phony Russian Collusion" accusations leveled against Trump's 2016 campaign.

At the same time, White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney has been inquiring into the purchase of a $43,000 soundproof phone booth in Mr. Pruitt's office, as well as a sweetheart $50-a-night rental of a Capitol Hill condominium from a lobbyist and her spouse with business before the EPA.

Parker went on to say he believes the Trump/Tester feud will lead to a big infusion of new out-of-state spending in Montana's Senate race, particularly on TV, both for and against Tester. "And if I said 'em, he'd never be elected again".

At the VFW Post 1087 in Great Falls, some veterans enjoying a beer and watching the National Basketball Association playoffs on a Sunday afternoon say their problem with Tester is that he went public with allegations against Jackson before a full investigation was concluded.
