The United States Secret Service is discrediting allegations made against Admiral Ronny Jackson, President Trump's now withdrawn nominee to serve as Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Information now released from the Secret Service appears to directly contradict claims made by Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) on multiple national news outlets.

According to a press release now posted on the Secret Service's website, there are no records of any incidents involving Admiral Ronny Jackson, who served as White House doctor to Presidents George W. Bush, President Obama, and now President Trump:

A thorough review of internal documents related to all Presidential foreign travel that occurred in 2015, in addition to interviews of personnel who were present during foreign travel that occurred during the same timeframe, has resulted in no information that would indicate the allegation is accurate.


The release continues:

The Secret Service is grateful for the dedicated and outstanding professional service Rear Admiral Jackson has provided to the agency - and more importantly - his role supporting the greater Presidential protection security apparatus.

Maybe Senator Tester should have vetted these allegations a little further before trashing a man who has served in the US Navy for 23 years on national television.
