Donald Trump’s pick to head the Department of Veterans Affairs, White House doctor Ronny Jackson, appears to be in trouble.
CBS News reports:
Sources familiar with the tales say Sen. Jon Tester’s committee staff is reviewing multiple allegations of a “hostile work environment.” The accusations include “excessive drinking on the job, improperly dispensing meds,” said one of the people familiar, who was granted anonymity to speak frankly about the situation. The other people familiar with the stories also confirmed those details.
If proven true, “it’ll sink his nomination,” said one of the sources.
Tester’s office began hearing the allegations from current and former employees in the last several days and over the weekend, said one of the people familiar with the ongoing probe.
Senators are discussing a delay for the hearing, which was scheduled for Wednesday.
