Ronny Jackson won't return to job as Trump's physician

Dr. Ronny Jackson departs the U.S. Capitol in Washington DC

It's unclear if Jackson will remain on staff at the White House medical unit or if he'll depart the administration.

Admiral Ronny Jackson has served as the White House doctor since 2006, working as the personal physician for presidents Donald Trump, Barack Obama and George W. Bush.

Senators on the Veterans Affairs Committee abruptly postponed Jackson's scheduled appearance early last week when Tester announced the committee was reviewing the allegations.

Trump praised his nominee as a "truly high-quality human being", and said that Tester derailed Jackson's nomination by "throwing out things that he's heard". Over the weekend, he said in a statement he would continue fighting for veterans in the Senate and did not address the president directly.

Trump also ignores misgivings expressed by several Republicans over Jackson's lack of management experience after Trump suddenly selected the doctor last month to head the government's second-largest agency. In an interview with Fox News, Swan expressed a "sense of deep concern and anger" about how Tester and the media circulated the accusation against Jackson "because I broke that stupid story on Sunday..."

Jackson and the White House have continued to deny allegations of misconduct, and Jackson's defenders in the White House said Monday that the episode involving Mrs. Pence was simply a dispute between two doctors with a strained relationship and that he had acted appropriately.

From there, "The Inspector General's office will determine what investigations or actions are warranted regarding these allegations and complaints", Crosson said. The White House says the records disprove the allegations. "I don't want to send him through a process like that", he said, referring to the customary vetting by Congress. Trump's threat to divulge alleged secrets about Tester also comes just days after Trump admitted his involvement in a deal to pay $130,000 in hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels. But I don't know if they are true ...

But the president has claimed the allegations are slander, and claimed the Secret Service had not confirmed the allegations.

Obama called Dr. Jackson "a most impressive leader", recommended him for promotion, and praised his "incredible work ethic and follow-through".

Trump tweeted: "The migrant "caravan" that is openly defying our border shows how weak & ineffective USA immigration laws are". Jackson reportedly intervened with her care, which led to "an inadvertent disclosure of SLOTUS' medical information in a situation where ultimate discretion was of utmost importance", according to a memo obtained by CNN. Jon Tester for "shameful smearing" of Jackson at CNN.
