White House takes feud with Sen. Tester to Montana airwaves

White House takes feud with Sen. Tester to Montana airwaves

White House physician Ronny Jackson will no longer serve as President Donald Trump's personal physician, multiple reports said Monday. "Despite published reports, there are no personnel announcements at this time".

Pena, who is assigned to Pence by the White House Medical Unit, reportedly "has held a long-time grudge against Jackson because of his continuing promotions in the White House".

Jackson, who has served as a White House doctor since 2006, announced last week he would withdraw his nomination to run the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Those charges, which the White House has denied, compounded concerns on Capitol Hill that the former combat doctor was not qualified to lead the nation's second-largest Cabinet agency.

Can the New Orleans Pelicans Upset the Golden State Warriors?
We can watch Game 4, through the comfortable lens of a 3-0 Pelicans lead, as a possible deciding night for series MVP. Portland had one last run in them, cutting the 100-87 third quarter deficit to two within three minutes.

His promotion is still pending, and senators have indicated that they will scrutinize it in light of recent claims that he oversaw a hostile work environment, loosely distributed prescription medications and drank while on official White House travel. Vice President Mike Pence's doctor was so alarmed by the incident that he wrote three memos and reported it up the chain of command, all the way to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

President Donald Trump had nominated Jackson in March for advancement to a two-star admiral. The swift unraveling of his nomination came amid a litany of allegations from almost two dozen current and former colleagues against a man whose selection late last month came as a surprise even to him, CNN has reported.

One of the memos apparently contains a description of an encounter wherein Jackson "told the doctor to "let the issue go" and to 'let things go ... if I am to succeed in my career'".

"Allegations made by Senator Jon Tester against Admiral/Doctor Ron Jackson are proving false", Trump said in the tweet. Trump demanded Tester resign, and then in true McCarthy-esque style, declared at a rally in MI, "I know things about Tester that I could say, too".

Meanwhile, The US Secret Service says it has no record of the door-banging incident which took place under the Obama administration. Republican Sen. Jonny Isakson (R-GA) signed off on the release of the allegations against Jackson, which Trump did not mention.
