Lax vetting on Trump

nominees beginning

WASHINGTON — As President Donald Trump’s pick to

lead Veterans Affairs skids to a halt, senators from both par-
ties are voicing frustration that the White House is skip-

clean up the mess.
That sentiment was evident Tuesday on Capitol Hill after
senators delayed hearings for White House physician
Ronny Jackson, Trump’s surprise pick to head the VA.
Jackson is facing questions about improper workplace
behavior, and even Trump himself acknowledged that there
were concerns about his nominee’s experience.
