White House Aide's warned about Ronny Jackson last fall

White House doctor Ronny Jackson was recently forced to withdraw his nomination for secretary of veterans affairs following a string of allegations

Trump praised his nominee as a "truly high-quality human being", and said that Tester derailed Jackson's nomination by "throwing out things that he's heard". Without the histrionics or name-calling so frequently deployed in Washington now.

But the nomination had already drawn skepticism from some lawmakers who anxious that Jackson's lack of experience would imperil the government's second-largest federal agency.

"The great people of Montana will not stand for this kind of slander when talking of a great human being", President Trump tweeted. (Perhaps for the best, given his lack of administrative experience in herding such a massive legion of dysfunctional cats.) Despite the fact that the Secret Service was unable to substantiate any of the claims made against him, leading to some calls for Tester's resignation, the damage had clearly been done.

Tester faces a tough re-election bid in a state Trump won easily in 2016.

White House physician Ronny Jackson will not return to his role as President Donald Trump's doctor, Politico reported on Monday citing two senior administration officials.

Controversy swirls around White House Correspondent's Dinner after profane headline performance
Republicans are seeing the vile, personal commentary in the context of the WHCD a win for President Trump and his administration. But even Trump's decision to skip the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner on Saturday night was familiar territory.

Tom Crosson, a Defense Department spokesman, said the department's inspector general has received the allegations and is "is "assessing what investigations and reviews have already been conducted related to these issues, any jurisdictional issues that may relate to the allegations, and the scope of the allegations and complaints related to these issues". If it's the former, then why would Jackson still be on the payroll as part of the White House medical unit? "Well I know things about Tester that I could say, too", Trump threatened.

The Secret Service announced Friday that it found no evidence to support allegations that members of the service detail stopped Jackson from disturbing former President Barack Obama during a 2015 trip overseas. "And, if I said them, he'd never be elected again". "Admiral Jackson's record of strong, decisive leadership is exactly what's needed at the VA to ensure our veterans receive the benefits they deserve". Jackson reportedly intervened with her care, which led to "an inadvertent disclosure of SLOTUS' medical information in a situation where ultimate discretion was of utmost importance", according to a memo obtained by CNN.

Jackson has denied the accusations, calling them "baseless and anonymous attacks" on his character and integrity that are "completely false and fabricated".

The Democratic staff on the committee considering Jackson's nomination also claimed Jackson had doled out such a large supply of a prescription opioid that staffers panicked because they thought the drugs were missing.

At least for the time being, it appears that the "scandalous" story of White House physician Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson is coming to something of an ignominious close.
