Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, President Donald Trump’s pick to head the Department of Veterans Affairs, was allegedly “abusive” to his colleagues, loosely handled prescription pain medications and was periodically intoxicated, even crashing a car once while drunk, according to allegations detailed in an explosive document compiled by Senate Democrats.

The document, written by Democratic staff on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, lists a range of allegations detailed by what they say are 23 current and former colleagues of Jackson.

Lawmakers have not yet substantiated these details and are investigating them further.
