Pence's Doctor Complained About Ronny Jackson to Top White House Aides

Ronny Jackson Will Not Return As Trump's Personal Physician

The physician for Vice President Mike Pence wrote three memos last fall warning the White House about Ronny Jackson's behavior.

But now CNN reports that top White House officials were already aware that there were concerns about Jackson's behavior because another physician complained about his conduct regarding Second Lady Karen Pence.

In an afternoon White House briefing on Tuesday (May 1), Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told the media that Jackson is still a naval doctor and on staff at the White House medical unit but not in the same role as before. Despite the fact that Jackson is responsible for the president, he apparently intervened in the situation with Mrs. Pence, leading to "an inadvertent disclosure of SLOTUS's medical information in a situation where ultimate discretion was of utmost importance". Jon Tester (D-Mont.), calling them "completely false and fabricated".

Trump, as he is wont to do when he has blundered, lashed out after the Jackson nomination imploded. Trump has said Tester should resign after publicly discussing unproven allegations about Jackson. However, Trump's impulsive nomination of an unqualified sycophant (Jackson declared after Trump's physical that the president could live to be 200 with the right diet!), his cringe-worthy inability to quickly pull the nomination and his groundless smear of a senator who did his job - thereby protecting the president from a physician whose conduct is under serious scrutiny and protecting USA veterans who deserve a competent and ethical VA chief - serve as flawless examples of why Trump is grossly unfit to serve.

Trump said he'd called Jackson earlier Friday and told him that he was "an American hero" because he'd "exposed the system for some disgusting things".

Mitron, we just 'sold' the Red Fort!
The idea is to look after operations at the fort and this Unesco world heritage site for the next five years. They might put up signs outside to say that they have developed the amenities.

Jackson has been a White House physician since 2006.

The VP's physician said Jackson told him "it is not always possible to adhere to HIPAA at the White House", and argued that "he must be involved" in any medical issues that arise at Camp David.

Jackson and the White House have denied the allegations, but Jackson ultimately withdrew his nomination last week to lead the VA. A number of former Obama administration officials have also pushed back against the smear, along with the U.S. Secret Service, which shot down Tester's allegations.

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. "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". She is grateful for the professional care she received from all White House medical personnel who resolved the matter quickly.

"Time and again, Democrats have attempted to blame President Trump for their own inaction, but it's their own leadership — Nancy Pelosi — who failed to include the VA Choice legislation in the 2000+ page omnibus bill", Gidley said.
