Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson has been the personal physician to our last three Presidents, and by all accounts, he’s done an excellent job for all three men. In fact, President Trump was so pleased with Jackson’s performance thus far that he had just nominated him to take control of the Veterans Administration as the next Secretary of the VA.
Some Democrats wondered if Jackson were up to the task, discounting the fact that Jackson was both an Admiral and a physician… but none had called his character into question until Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) chose to do so in a recent and scandalous report.
CNN first reported on what Tester and his group of investigators had “discovered” about Jackson, and it was indeed a list of scandalous accusations.

Montana Sen. Jon Tester, the top Democrat on the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, told CNN earlier Tuesday that his committee had spoken with 20 former and current members of the military about Jackson, and that the allegations brought to the committee included concerns about his use of alcohol while on the job.
“If you are drunk and something happens with the president, it’s very difficult to go in and treat the president,” Tester said in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “That’s what multiple people told us this was the case on several different trips.”
