White House doctor Ronny Jackson was recently forced to withdraw his nomination for secretary of veterans affairs following a string of allegations

"Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson is now on active duty, assigned to the White House as Deputy Assistant to the President", White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said in a statement.

"Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson is now on active duty, assigned to the White House as deputy assistant to the president".

His promotion is still pending, and senators have indicated that they will scrutinize it in light of recent claims that he oversaw a hostile work environment, loosely distributed prescription medications and drank while on official White House travel.

President Donald Trump is distorting some of the reasons why his pick to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, White House physician Ronny Jackson, abruptly withdrew his nomination.

Jackson's pending departure was first reported by Politico.

Sean Conley, a Navy officer who took over for Jackson after he was nominated in March, is expected to stay on as Trump's primary doctor.

"Tester should resign", Bongino said on "Fox & Friends". "The Secret Service is unable to confirm (in fact they deny) any of the phony Democrat charges which have absolutely devastated the wonderful Jackson family".

One of the memos apparently contains a description of an encounter wherein Jackson "told the doctor to "let the issue go" and to 'let things go ... if I am to succeed in my career'".

"Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson is now on active duty, assigned to the White House as Deputy Assistant to the President", said White House spokesperson Raj Shah.

His efforts were backed by Sen.

Critics have said Tester should have saved his concerns for the confirmation hearing instead of airing them to the media.

Several of those military officials also described their experiences with Jackson with reporters for The New York Times and other publications.

Tester said in a statement responding to Trump over the weekend that "It's my duty to make sure Montana veterans get what they need and have earned, and I'll never stop fighting for them as their senator".

Tester, the top Democrat on the Republican-controlled Senate Veteran Affairs Committee, is seeking a third Senate term this year in a state Trump won in 2016 with 56 percent of the vote.
