The New York Times has just published a report that reveals even more allegations of improper and dangerous behavior by the man President Donald Trump insists be confirmed to head the Veterans Administration.
Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson “got intoxicated and ‘wrecked a government vehicle,’ according to the summary” drafted by the Democratic staff of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee.
Dr. Jackson also “provided ‘a large supply’ of Percocet, a prescription opioid, to a White House military office staff member, throwing his own medical staff ‘into a panic’ when the medical unit could not account for the missing drugs,” the report indicates.
“A nurse on his staff said Dr. Jackson had written himself prescriptions, and when caught, he asked a physician assistant to provide the medication,” the summary also says, according to The Times.
Earlier Wednesday White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that “Because Dr. Jackson has worked within arm’s reach of three presidents, he has received more vetting than most nominees.”

His psychological impairments have been deadly through action and inaction, and are now promoting police brutality through pronouncements such as, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” while marking protesters as “thugs”.
