  • Ronny Jackson won't return to old job as Trump's physician

Tester had alleged that Jackson drank while working as a White House doctor and overprescribed medication, Vox reported, with the allegations published in a memo that appeared to prompt Jackson to withdraw his nomination.

Jackson's pending departure was first reported by Politico. The Secret Service said it has found no evidence of an alleged auto accident involving drunken driving, one of the claims released by Tester.

Critics have said Tester should have saved his concerns for the confirmation hearing instead of airing them to the media. Following the release of Senator Jon Tester's blistering memo alleging all manner of bad behavior, Jackson's hopes of becoming the next chief of the Veterans Administration were dashed.

Australia hoping to convince India to play day-night Test
The newly built Perth stadium will also make its debut when India and Australia face-off in second test match of the series. The two-Test tour against Sri Lanka concludes at Manuka Oval in Canberra in a match to be staged from February 1 to 5.

"Sen. Tester even admitted that he reviewed the Federal Bureau of Investigation files and there was no derogatory information in there about Jackson but he still spread malicious rumors", said a Trump administration official.

Ann Marie Hauser, a Republican senior staffer, was reportedly all but set to join the State Department until officials are said to have scoured her public profiles, and ultimately found that she had retweeted a 2016 post from a Republican who called for Trump to drop out of the race following the unearthing of the infamous Access Hollywood tape.

Meanwhile, The US Secret Service says it has no record of the door-banging incident which took place under the Obama administration. "Very dishonest and sick!" He also insinuated that Tester himself could be the target of allegations: "I know things about Tester that I could say, too".

That's not exactly a denial because Jackson's title has not changed, at least not yet. "And, if I said them, he'd never be elected again".

'Avengers: Infinity War' Just Had The Biggest Opening Weekend Ever
Domestically, " Infinity War " took in $250 million, surpassing 2015′s " The Force Awakens ", which brought in $ 247 million . Analysts at Box Office Pro were predicting as much as $255 million in domestic weekend sales.

Jackson has denied the accusations, calling them "baseless and anonymous attacks" on his character and integrity that are "completely false and fabricated".

Some names being tossed around for the VA spot now that Dr. Ronny Jackson has withdrawn are: Ascension President and CEO Anthony Tersigni, Cleveland Clinic CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove, Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.), and former Rep. Jeff Miller (R-Fla.).

The Democratic staff on the committee considering Jackson's nomination also claimed Jackson had doled out such a large supply of a prescription opioid that staffers panicked because they thought the drugs were missing.

Despite the fact that President Trump's continues to praise him, Ronny Jackson will not be returning to the White House as the President's personal physician.
