Ronny Jackson, President Trump’s pick to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, could have his nomination scuppered over allegations surrounding his conduct, which is said to have created a “hostile work environment” for his colleagues. Sources said to be familiar with the Navy physician’s conduct told CBS News the accusations against Jackson include “excessive drinking on the job, improperly dispensing meds,” and one suggested that the allegations surrounding him could “sink his nomination.” The Senate Veterans Affairs committee is investigating the allegations and it’s unclear if the panel may postpone Jackson’s confirmation hearings, which were scheduled for Wednesday. One of the people familiar with the probe said they started hearing the allegations circulating about Jackson in the last several days. Jackson is best known for his January press conference in which he gave President Trump a clean bill of health.
