White House Physician and Secretary of Veterans Affairs nominee Dr. Ronny L. Jackson has reportedly had his confirmation hearing delayed due to concerns about his background.

"The Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs is postponing the hearing to consider the nominee to be secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in light of new information presented to the committee," [Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and ranking member Sen. Jon Tester, (D-MT)] said in a statement. "We will continue looking into these serious allegations and have requested additional information from the White House to enable the committee to conduct a full review."

Jackson gained national attention earlier this year after giving a bizarre press conference in which he claimed Trump was in "excellent health" at 6'3" and 239 lbs. Watch below:
