by Connor O'Brien
Sen. Bernie Sanders wouldn’t commit to supporting President Donald Trump’s pick to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, on Sunday.
In an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” the Vermont independent noted that Jackson, Trump’s personal physician, is a virtual unknown on veterans issues. He also expressed concerns the Trump administration is pushing to privatize the nearly $200 billion bureaucracy, citing the conservative agenda of the influential donors Charles and David Koch.
