Sen. Jon Tester’s Vicious Character Assassination By Innuendo

The man in charge of the personal health of three presidents from both parties, a decorated combat vet (deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and forward deployed with the Surgical Shock Trauma Platoon in Taqaddum, Iraq) who received the Defense Superior Service Medal, Legion of Merit, four Navy/Marine Corps Commendation medals, three Navy/Marine Corps Achievement medals and numerous unit and campaign awards, never got the chance to answer his accusers or even learn their names this week.
Playing a central role in ending Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson’s chances of leading the Department of Veterans Affairs was Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) who relied on hearsay and innuendo from 23 people alleging a lengthy history of professional misconduct to include a “pattern” of distributing medication without a patient history and crashing a government vehicle while intoxicated following a Secret Service going-away party.
Some Republicans who sit on the Veterans' Affairs Committee said they got no warning Tester would air the allegations so publicly.
Tester should have treated serious allegations with discretion, but he’s out to feed The Resistance as he runs for re-election.
RADM Jackson, who routinely received glowing performance reviews from Presidents Bush and Obama, continued to proclaim the portrait painted of him in recent days was false.
Tester had, heretofore, managed to keep a low profile in Congress but the Chuck Schumer puppet and former Chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (2015-2017) has caught the attention of Americans for the way in which he toppled the Veterans Affairs nominee.  Dr. Jackson didn’t deserve days of leaks and smears.
Former White House Press Secretary for President George W. Bush, Ari Fleischer, tweeted:
Chuck Schumer’s Democrats have invoked cloture on 89 of President Trump’s nominees, a move which triggers 30 hours of debate even on non-controversial candidates, their goal of giving the country and this President only half a government.
The President is justifiably outraged by the obstructionist shenanigans of the left.  I hope the good people of Montana vote Sen. Jon Tester out of office come November.
UPDATE 1:10 PM 04/28/18:  Report from The Associated Press ─ Sen. Tester responded to President Trump’s calls for him to resign by saying he has a duty to make sure veterans in his state get what they’ve earned.  “I’ll never stop fighting for them.”
