Montana analyst: Trump more 'Chihuahua' than bear in spat with Tester

Ronny Jackson Will Not Return As Trump's Personal Physician

The disclosure comes amid Jackson's withdrawal from Trump's offer to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs after allegations of drunken behavior and harassment surfaced.

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".

The probe threatens to derail Jackson's future with the Navy. It remains to be seen whether or not his attacks on Trump's personal doctor will have a negative impact on him during his campaign.

For now, Jackson remains in his position at the White House, a spokesman said Tuesday, denying media reports that he would not continue as Trump's physician. A White House official Ayers informed Kelly and White House deputy chief of staff Joe Hagin, and they said the doctor should report it through the usual medical and military chain of command. "If they had any merit, I would not have been selected, promoted and entrusted to serve in such a sensitive and important role as physician to three presidents over the past 12 years". "She went up to the Hill and she spoke with approximately twenty-five Democrats... she's a holdover in the White House and didn't want Jackson to be nominated".

Last week, Democrats on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee released some of the accusations made against Jackson by 23 of his current and former coworkers in the White House Medical Unit.

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.

Ravens draft Lamar Jackson; QB immediately says he'll win Super Bowl
Newsome, 62, has been in charge of the Ravens since the franchise arrived in Baltimore from Cleveland following the 1995 season. Averett's former teammate, Marlon Humphrey, was the Ravens first draft pick in 2017. "It's been a lot of picks", Newsome said.

Initially raised by Sen.

"I think Montanans know who the real Jon Tester is, and the amount of work he has done for the veterans in the state of Montana is fantastic", Bolland added. None of the allegations she allegedly brought forth have been substantiated.

All to replace a widely respected and deeply qualified VA secretary, David Shulkin, with someone who would supposedly be beyond corruption or reproach.

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

An investigation did not uncover any evidence that President Trump's former nominee to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) drunkenly wrecked a government vehicle after a Secret Service party, White House officials told The Washington Post. Trump wrote on Twitter that Tester should put in his papers saying that Secret Service had not been successful in reaffirming any of the allegations against Jackson.
