After President Trump nominated Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, the President’s physician, to become the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, the mainstream began to hyperventilate and commenced the dirty work. What they allegedly found was shocking, yet came with absolute false pretexts.
Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) unleashed an extremely conspicuous attack on the physician following the nomination. One of the allegations was that Jackson had crashed a government vehicle while driving under the influence. The White House told the Washington Post that there is no evidence of that occurring.
In another accusation, a female Obama Admin worker has said that Jackson banged on her door in the middle of the night during an overseas trip in 2015. The Secret Service denied such events happened.
The Rear Adm. was also accused of handing out prescription drugs ‘like candy’ on the same trip.
Senator Tester, being on the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, hasn’t come forward with any textbook evidence of the allegations happening. Since then, Jackson has withdrawn his name from consideration.
Rear Adm. Jackson has been the White House physician for 15 years, first hand-picked by the Bush Administration. However, it would fall in the hands of the Obama Administration. Currently, there is no record of any misdeeds, but taking into the account that all of these ‘events’ occurred before President Trump’s inauguration leads you to say that it isn’t Trump’s fault.
If Jackson is giving prescription medicine to his coworkers, getting drunk, and causing midnight disturbances, pounding on staffer’s doors… wouldn’t these people want him fired? The pieces don’t add up to complete the puzzle.
Moreover, President Trump is right: it’s an absolute witch hunt. Anything and everything the Trump Administration does is taken under extreme scrutiny.
