Vice President Pence's doctor has resigned amid controversy over President Trump's failed nomination of Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson to serve as Veterans Affairs secretary. 
 
Dr. Jennifer Peña was a physician in the White House Medical Unit, which Jackson led prior to his nomination. Multiple news reports said she was one of the people who accused Jackson of misconduct, allegations that eventually sunk his nomination. 
 
“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," Pence press secretary Alyssa Farah said in a statement.
