"We need to be asking questions and there need to be answers", he added. "It's all hands on deck", said Sen.

Ronny Jackson was tapped to replace ousted Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin. Robert Wilkie of DOD will serve as Acting Secretary. But the White House doctor's own background appears to be causing issues as well.
