President Donald Trump's personal physician and nominee to head the department of Veterans Affairs has been accused of drunkenly banging on the door of a female employee in 2015 — an incident witnessed by four people.


CNN reported Tuesday night that during the incident, Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson's behavior was so cacophonous "that the Secret Service stopped him out of concern that he would wake then-President Barack Obama," one source said.

Two other sources who worked for the White House Medical Unit corroborated the claim, with one saying that it was "definitely inappropriate, in the middle of the night," and that it made the employee in question uncomfortable.

According to CNN's sources, "the incident was reported up the chain of command, and it is one of multiple drunken episodes involving Jackson on overseas trips."
