Democrat Senator lies to defeat Trump VA nomination...

Trump calls on senator to resign over claims about VA nominee

President Trump called for Montana Senator ’s resignation Saturday morning, a day after the legislator’s claim against Trump’s nominee to head up the Department of Veterans Affairs was disputed by the Secret Service.
“Allegations made by Senator Jon Tester against Admiral/Doctor Ron Jackson are proving false,” Trump wrote in a pair of tweets at 8:07 a.m. “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 Secret Service announced Friday they had no record that Jackson drunkenly pounded on the hotel room door of a female colleague during a trip overseas in 2015, which Tester had publicly claimed.
The White House physician, who withdrew his name from consideration Thursday to head the Department of Veterans Affairs, was also accused of handing out prescription drugs “like candy.”
The “great people of Montana will not stand for this kind of slander when talking of a great human being,” Trump added in a second tweet at 8:15 a.m. “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. Not fair, Tester!”
