Jackson Faces New Allegations Of Bad Record-Keeping, Drunkenness

President Donald Trump's pick to lead the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is facing a new round of allegations. Democratic Sen. Jon Tester released a list Wednesday of behavior he deemed concerning. 

The allegations largely reference his work as the White House doctor. The list includes giving people medication without the proper paperwork, shoddy record-keeping, creating a hostile work environment, being unreachable when he was needed because he was passed out drunk, and wrecking a government vehicle while drunk.

Ronny Jackson denied the last allegation about wrecking a vehicle. He said his nomination was moving forward. But CNN reports the White House is preparing for the possibility Jackson will withdraw from the process.
