A newspaper is reporting that the Navy rear admiral who abandoned his nomination to be secretary of Veterans Affairs amid numerous allegations will not return to the job of President Donald Trump's personal physician but will remain on the White House medical staff. A Navy veteran, Dr Sean Conley, who took the role of Trump's personal physician after Jackson was nominated by Trump, will remain in that role.
Trump continued defending Jackson on Saturday, tweeting his contention that "Allegations made by Senator Jon Tester against Admiral/Doctor Ron Jackson are proving false".
The records also say the White House medical unit Jackson ran successfully passed regular controlled substance audits.
"There were no such findings", he tweeted.
On Saturday, Trump called on Tester to resign.
Separately, the U.S. Secret Service said it had no records to back allegations that its personnel intervened to stop Jackson from disturbing former President Barack Obama during a foreign trip in 2015.
"Senator Tester is perhaps the most vulnerable Democratic Senator in the 208 election", said McHammond.
The White House, however, showed reporters documents on Friday that a White House official claims exonerates Jackson from allegations he inappropriately dispensed pills and wrecked a government vehicle after leaving a Secret Service going away party.

Injured in Wisconsin Oil Refinery Explosion, Officials Say
SUPERIOR, Wis . (WEAU) -The Superior Fire Department is now responding to an explosion at the Calumet Oil Refinery in Superior. Shelters were being readied for evacuees at University of Wisconsin-Superior and an elementary school.
Those accusations led Jackson to withdraw his nomination for the position.
Tester faces a tricky re-election bid in a state Trump received simply in 2016. "A terrible thing that we in D.C. must live with, just like phony Russian Collusion".
On Sunday's 'Fox and Friends' program, Montana's Democrat Senator Jon Tester was a top of discussion with comments from Deputy News Editor Alexi McHammond of the Axios website. "Very dishonest and sick!"
Records were also pulled of three vehicle incidents involving Jackson over the last four years.
Speaking of the president's genetics, Jackson said, "Some people have just great genes". In a tweet, the president declared the allegations against Jackson "not true".
Tester and Chairman Johnny Isakson had released a statement voicing concerns about Jackson.
Trump addressed the situation again at a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday, in which he called Jackson "high quality" and defended him against the allegations noted by Tester.
