Trump Actually Just Said Name-Calling Is a 'Disgrace'

Jon Tester of Montana, the senior Democrat on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee. Mr. Trump said Tester - who faces a tough election in November in a state where Mr. Trump's approval rating is among the highest - "should resign".

On Friday, however, the White House said internal records, including police reports, revealed that alcohol was never a factor in Jackson's three minor incidents with government vehicles over five years, nor was he ever found at fault - contradicting Tester's claims.

Since they first emerged this week, Trump has repeatedly blasted the allegations of workplace misconduct surrounding Jackson, "the Candy Man", which include accusations of drinking on the job and improperly giving out prescription drugs, as fabricated.

Trump's tweets say "the great people of Montana will not stand for this kind of slander" and that Jackson's reputation "for no reason whatsoever. has been shattered".

Dr. Ronny Jackson, left, withdrew from consideration to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs after criticism from U.S. Sen.

A document of testimony from current and past colleagues released by Democratic lawmakers included the allegation that the White House physician once "wrecked a government vehicle" after he got drunk at a Secret Service going-away party.

The White House official, who declined to speak on the record, said the White House investigation did not find any documents to back up the allegations, and found evidence to refute two major accusations.

The Secret Service statement went on to say, "Rear Admiral Jackson, in his role as the official White House Physician, has provided years of dedicated support to the men and women of the Secret Service, often miles from home and under hard travel conditions, in order to ensure our personnel are healthy and prepared to execute our critical mission". But White House officials said it would be inconceivable for serious damage to a government vehicle to escape notice and not be recorded.

The GE-Safran partnership that built the engine said it was sending about 40 technicians to help with Southwest's inspections. It broke off during that Southwest flight from NY to Dallas sending shrapnel forward and causing an explosion.

Tester did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

CNN had reported allegations that Jackson drunkenly banged on the hotel room door of a female employee and that Secret Service personnel intervened out of concern that he would wake Obama.

Democrats said Thursday that the allegations against Jackson reflected a lack of proper vetting by the White House.

Trump nominated Jackson to be VA secretary on March 28 after firing former VA Secretary David Shulkin.

"I've had it happen to me with the Russian collusion hoax", he said.

The information that Jackson successfully passed regular controlled substance audits directly challenges Sen.

Moran says the people in the fields and VA hospitals in Kansas are usually veterans themselves, but things change as you head up the political ladder.
