The president’s nominee to lead the department of Veterans Affairs is reportedly the subject of “improper conduct” allegations that may derail his confirmation.

Soon after CNN’s initial report, the Washington Post broke news that the VA committee is postponing Jackson’s confirmation hearing, which was scheduled for this Wednesday.
