Sen. Tester Claims He Was Only Doing His Job

Sen. Tester Claims He Was Only Doing His Job

The president also gave a nod to rapper Kanye West who has stirred controversy by espousing his support for Trump on Twitter, a move that has made the artist a symbol of free speech and free thought in recent days on Trump-friendly Fox News.

One of the allegations against Jackson is that he got drunk at a Secret Service going-away party and wrecked a government vehicle.

After earlier suggesting that Jackson drop out, Trump leapt to Jackson's defense on Saturday, even calling for Tester's resignation.

Trump tweeted early Saturday that the allegations Tester released last week "are proving false".

Trump's tweets say "the great people of Montana will not stand for this kind of slander" and that Jackson's reputation "for no reason whatsoever. has been shattered".

White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah reportedly echoed this line of attack on Friday.

"By the way, is this better than that phony, Washington White House Correspondents' Dinner?" Jackson denied the accusation, stating, "I never wrecked a auto". "I can tell you that".

Jackson has denied the allegations (which likely would have come up prior to the nomination if Trump had given staffers enough time to properly vet him). He added: "If they had any merit, I would not have been selected, promoted and entrusted to serve in such a sensitive and important role as physician to three presidents over the past 12 years".

As to Trump's claim that the Secret Service "checked out all of those things" and said they were untrue, it's not clear if he was referring to the full allegations or just the purported auto crash.

Trump has criticized Tester for smearing the physician.

Some veterans' groups also faulted the administration and said veterans are suffering the consequences.

"Veterans are losing six different ways right now, from all directions, and it's discouragingly unclear why this keeps happening or what might make it stop", AMVETS Executive Director Joe Chenelly said.

"Tester started throwing out things that he's heard". "It is really about him doing his job and doing his work".

"Senator Isakson has a great relationship with Senator Tester", spokesperson Amanda Maddox said. Democrats also say he he "wrecked" a auto after drinking at a Secret Service going-away party. So loud was the alleged ruckus that the Secret Service had to intervene out of concerns that he would wake up then-president Barack Obama.

That unit passed regular controlled substance audits, according to records for the last three years. The allegations were made by four people with knowledge of the incident who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Secretary of Veterans Affairs nominee Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, meets with Senator Jon Tester at his office on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, on April 17, 2018.

The White House had already taken issue with allegations against Jackson, saying Friday that internal records raise doubt about some of the most serious allegations leveled against Jackson.

"Look forward to being in the Great State of MI tonight", Trump said in a tweet hours before the event in Washington Township.

The White House says the records disprove those allegations.
