Ronny Jackson Not Returning As Trump's Personal Doctor, Reports Say

The shameful smearing of Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House physician who was nominated by President Donald Trump to be Secretary of the Veterans Affairs Administration and has now withdrawn, is example #967 of why people hate Washington D.C. and were in a revolutionary mood at the 2016 ballot box.

"Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson is now on active duty, assigned to the White House as deputy assistant to the president", White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah said Monday. After Admiral Jackson withdrew from the nomination, the Secret Service and White House announced that no evidence exists for some of the more spectacular allegations against him.

The Navy officer who took over for Jackson as Trump's personal doctor, Sean Conley, will continue serving the president, according to Politico. Jackson, who withdrew as Trump's VA pick last week, will remain on the staff of the White House medical unit, the official added.

Senator Tester did his due-diligence and stood up for Montana's veterans, like he has time and time again. Tester acknowledged in an MSNBC interview that not all of the allegations against Jackson were proven, but that they merited investigation. Jon Tester, the top Democrat on the Veterans' Affairs Committee, released a document summarizing allegations by current and former colleagues that Jackson overprescribed pills, drank on the job and created a hostile work environment. "Well, I know things about Tester that I could say, too", Trump said at the rally, The Daily Beast reported.

Shah's statement does not address whether Jackson's duties will ultimately change.

"The migrant "caravan" that is openly defying our border shows how weak & ineffective USA immigration laws are", Trump tweeted. He called Jackson "the kind of man that those in Montana would most respect and admire, and now, for no reason whatsoever, his reputation has been shattered". When Amanda Maddox was asked whether Isakson was troubled by Tester's release of the allegations, she cited comments the chairman made Thursday: "Everyone has an obligation if they make a charge to release it". Together, they had delayed Jackson's confirmation hearing to allow the committee time to investigate.

First Ronny Jackson was a dedicated and well-respected White House physician to George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

These allegations were so outrageous that Jonathan Swan, the reporter from Axios who broke the original story that Jackson's nomination was in trouble, refused to print them.
