Dr. Ronny Jackson, President Donald Trump's embattled pick for Veterans Affairs secretary, allegedly provided a "large supply" of the opioid Percocet to a White House staffer, and wrecked a government car while intoxicated, according to a bombshell new report.
After that story was published online, Jackson told reporters he "did not wreck a car."
Jackson, who is Trump's personal physician in the White House, also said his nomination is "still moving ahead as planned" before walking away from reporters.
Jackson also allegedly wrote himself prescriptions, and after he was caught doing so he asked a physician assistant to provide the medication, The New York Times reported, citing a Democratic Senate staff summary of alleged conduct by Jackson.
The summary cited by the Times is based on testimony from 23 current and former colleagues of Jackson.
