CNN: “Republican lawmakers and aides have grown increasingly frustrated with the White House over the last several days — tied in part to the unconventional nomination of Dr. Ronny Jackson to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs and the lack of congressional consultation before it was made.”

“Lawmakers said they have received information that alleges Jackson over-prescribed sleeping medication and … allegations that he drank on the job.”

“The White House doctor is just the latest in a string of nominees — including Gina Haspel, whom Trump tapped to lead the CIA — facing resistance unexpected by the White House. Repeatedly, the Trump administration has failed to recognize potential pitfalls for their nominees or worked to ensure Republican lawmakers in charge on Capitol Hill are on board.”
