The White House released a list of new appointments on Saturday that shows Jackson serving as an assistant to the president and as his chief medical adviser.

President Trump has re-nominated his former doctor, Navy Rear Adm.

So great to watch & listen to all these people who write books & talk about my presidential campaign and so many others things related to winning, and how I should be doing "IT".

Navy spokeswoman Lt. Christina Sears said Jackson is still assigned to the White House. Jackson faces a series of allegations that surfaced after Trump nominated him to head the VA, including drinking on the job, creating a hostile work environment and overprescribing medications. He led the medical team for Trump's physical exam past year and said the president was in excellent health and has "incredibly good genes".

NBC News has not confirmed whether that investigation is ongoing. Jack Reed, D-R.I., the ranking Democrat on the committee.

Rockies reach one-year deal with Nolan Arenado
The contract is worth $3 million more than the deal third baseman Josh Donaldson reached with the Toronto Blue Jays last season. The Colorado Rockies have agreed to a one-year contract with third-baseman Nolan Arenado , the club announced on Thursday.

The committee said 23 current and former colleagues had come forward to accuse Jackson of prescribing himself medications, getting drunk at a Secret Service party and wrecking a government vehicle.

The navy doctor withdrew following allegations of professional misconduct, which the Pentagon continues to investigate. Brian McKeon, a former executive secretary and chief of staff of the National Security Council in the Obama administration, also said in an interview in April that the allegations did not ring true.

Jackson withdrew from consideration as Trump's nominee for secretary of Veterans Affairs last April after the accusations from his colleagues emerged. "If they had any merit, I would not have been selected, promoted and entrusted to serve in such a sensitive and important role as physician to three presidents over the past 12 years".

Tester was re-elected to the Senate in November.
