President Donald Trump called on Senator Jon Tester, D-Mont., to resign after unsubstantiated allegations he leveled against Admiral Ronny Jackson collapsed. Admiral Jackson, MD withdrew as the nominee for Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) amid the attacks.

“Allegations made by Senator Jon Tester against Admiral/Doctor Ron Jackson are proving false,” President Trump tweeted. “The Secret Service is unable to confirm (in fact they deny) any of the phony Democrat charges which have absolutely devastated the wonderful Jackson family. Tester should resign. The…..”

“…great people of Montana will not stand for this kind of slander when talking of a great human being. Admiral Jackson is the kind of man that those in Montana would most respect and admire, and now, for no reason whatsoever, his reputation has been shattered,” he added. “Not fair, Tester!”

President Trump nominated Admiral Jackson after removing David Shulkin, a scandal-laden holdover from the Obama Administration. Democrats, led by the vulnerable Senator Tester, waged a political attack with unsubstantiated and anonymously sourced allegations ranging from mishandled prescription drugs to crashing a government vehicle.

Admiral Jackson received glowing performance evaluations from Barack Obama.

Recent polling shows Senator Tester in deep trouble. The PPD Senate Election Projection Model rates the U.S. Senate race in Montana Likely Republican.

      This is how we treat our warriors in this country now. We destroy their reputation. Look at the report on Flynn, too. Robert Mueller charged him with a felony even after FBI agents said he did not lie to them. Now, Jackson gets smeared. Who the hell would want this? Only corrupt dirtbags.
