Dr. Ronny Jackson Withdraws From VA Nomination

The Hill reports:

President Trump’s pick to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs has withdrawn his nomination amid allegations of workplace misconduct and prescription mispractice.

The withdrawal of Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson followed a decision by the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee to indefinitely postpone his confirmation hearing.

Staffers on the committee were looking into charges against Jackson of creating a “hostile work environment” including “excessive drinking on the job [and] improperly dispensing meds.”
