Ronny Jackson won't return as President Trump's White House doctor

A furious President Donald Trump on Saturday called for the resignation of the Democratic senator who assembled and released what he called "false" allegations that scuttled the nomination of the White House doctor who'd been in line to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Jackson, a Navy rear admiral, withdrew his nomination following allegations he drank alcohol on the job, improperly prescribed and dispensed medications, and created a "toxic" work environment.

CNN previously spoke to multiple current and former employees at the White House medical unit who described a "grab and go" culture that allowed staffers to get prescription drugs without a medical examination.

"The information that was brought to the attention of the Veterans Affairs Committee must be reviewed and addressed by the Department of Defense before the Armed Services Committee can consider the nomination", said Chip Unruh, spokesman for Senator Jack Reed, the ranking Democrat on the Armed Services committee.

The White House released records that it says show the allegations were not true. Jon Tester, D-Mont., arrives for voting at the Capitol in Washington. The Secret Service said it has found no evidence of an alleged vehicle accident involving drunken driving, one of the claims released by Tester.

The White House has pushed back on Politico's report but declined to clarify Jackson's role. There were no such findings, ' Trump tweeted.

Trump had already singled out Senator Jon Tester, the top-ranking Democrat on the Senate Veterans' Affairs committee, who is up for re-election in November in Montana.

Records were also pulled of three vehicle incidents involving Jackson over the last four years. "Not fair, Tester!", Trump added...

The Secret Service announced Friday that it found no evidence to support allegations that members of the service detail stopped Jackson from disturbing former President Barack Obama during a 2015 trip overseas. He continues to insist allegations about his character are false. "And if I said 'em, he'd never be elected again".

Trump named Jackson to replace David Shulkin, the former VA secretary, in March after the department's inspector general released a report faulting Shulkin for a trip he took to Europe a year ago with his wife, whose travel expenses were paid by taxpayer funds.
