VP Pence’s Doctor Calls It Quits

Dr. Jennifer Pena, who was assigned as Vice President Mike Pence’s physician has resigned, CNN reports.

“The vice president’s office was informed today by the White House Medical Unit of the resignation. Physicians assigned to the vice president report to the White House Medical Unit and thus any resignation would go entirely through the Medical Unit, not the vice president’s office,” Alyssa Farah, Pence’s press secretary, said in a statement to CNN.

The Internal Turmoil Continues

CNN reported that Pena and Donald Trump’s doctor Ronny Jackson argued because of concerns she may have had over Jackson possibly violating privacy protections for Pence’s wife, Karen.

According to reports, Jackson, intimidated Pena during an angry confrontation. But Jackson denies that claim.

“The allegations against me are completely false and fabricated,” Jackson said in a statement. “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.”

CNN reports that a White House official maintains that Pena “misrepresented the extent of Jackson’s actions.”

Jackson has been under fire for allegations of professional misconduct and is no longer Trump’s attending physician.

Potential Retribution

Pena had concerns that Jackson had overstepped his boundaries and intervened in a medical situation with Pence’s wife, which could have privacy violations, according to CNN.

CNN reveals that Pena also wrote in a memo of “feeling intimidated” by an irate Jackson after she confronted him about the medical violation. She said he made her feel “uncomfortable” she said.

According to a former White House medical official, Jackson and Pena have had a long history of having a “strained relationship.”
