The Secret Service is disputing one of the accusations against White House physician Ronny Jackson that led him to withdraw from his confirmation hearing to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs. The allegation that Jackson drunkenly banged on the door of a female colleague so loudly that Secret Service had to calm him down as to not disturb President Obama was not true, according to a statement issued Thursday night. “The Secret Service has no such record of any incident... 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 statement did not address accusations that Jackson wrecked a government vehicle while intoxicated at a party held for a Secret Service member. It also states that Jackson “provided years of dedicated support to the men and women of the Secret Service” and that the agency is “grateful” for Jackson’s service.
