美国防部督察长调查川普前专职医生杰克逊少将 Pentagon Watchdog Opens Probe of White House Physician Ronny Jackson

美国国防部督察长办公室星期一发表声明说,正在白宫医生、海军少将杰克逊受到的行为不当的指称展开调查。

美国总统川普三月份提名杰克逊出任退伍军人事务部部长后,杰克逊被指担任白宫医生期间制造恶劣的工作环境,工作时酗酒,并多开处方药。提名一个月后,杰克逊宣布放弃部长提名。杰克逊对这些指控始终矢口否认。

参议院退伍军人事务委员会的民主党人说,多达20名以往和现在的同事都站出来对杰克逊提出抱怨,说他给自己开处方药,在特勤工作人员派对上喝醉酒,并撞坏了一辆政府用车。

杰克逊退出提名后不再担任总统的专职医生。

The U.S. Defense Department's inspector general has opened an investigation into misconduct allegations against White House physician Ronny Jackson, the inspector general's office said in a statement on Monday.

President Donald Trump nominated Jackson to be veterans affairs secretary in March, but Jackson withdrew from consideration a month later amid allegations he had overseen a hostile work environment as White House physician, drank on the job and allowed the overprescribing of drugs. Jackson has denied the allegations.

Democrats on the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee have said more than 20 current and former colleagues had come forward to accuse Jackson of prescribing himself medications, getting drunk at a Secret Service party and wrecking a government vehicle.

After withdrawing his nomination for the VA post, Jackson stopped serving as Trump's lead physician.
