Jackson “disparaged, belittled, bullied, and humiliated” subordinates, creating a negative work environment, according to the report.
It also said that Jackson, who served as White House physician to Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, violated White House Military Office (WHMO) policy on drinking alcohol while on presidential trips to Manila, Philippines, in April 2014 and a trip to Bariloche, Argentina, in March 2016.

In Manila, Jackson became intoxicated and engaged in behavior that witnesses described as screaming and yelling while in his hotel room, the report said. In Bariloche, Jackson drank a beer.
Jackson also used the sleep aid Ambien while on duty during long overseas flights, raising concerns from members of the White House Medical Unit staff, according to the report. However, investigators concluded that they were not aware of any WHMO prohibitions against the use of Ambien or whether Jackson had notified his supervisor in advance as policy requires.
Jackson, who achieved the rank of rear admiral in the Navy, issued a statement to Fox News following the report.
“Three years ago I was the subject of a political hit job because I stood with President Trump,” Jackson said. “Today, a Department of Defense Inspector General report has resurrected those same false allegations from my years with the Obama Administration because I have refused to turn my back on President Trump.”

Jackson accused Democrats of using the report “to repeat and rehash untrue attacks on my integrity.”
“I’m proud of the work environment I fostered under three different Presidents of both parties; I take my professional responsibility with respect to prescription drug practices seriously; and I flat out reject any allegation that I consumed alcohol while on duty.”
