    Democrats contend a more rigorous investigation would have shown otherwise. In their “Minority Views” report that was also released Friday, they point to a strong possibility that then-candidate Donald Trump himself was communicating with his son as he worked to schedule the now-infamous Trump Tower meeting in June of 2016 with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer.

    Their report also details how George Papadopoulos, dismissed by Trump advisors as a low-level “coffee boy,” was regularly in touch with Kremlin-linked individuals and top Trump officials during both the campaign and transition. Papadopoulos was informed in April 2016 that the Kremlin had “dirt” on Clinton in the form of emails, well before the Clinton campaign or DNC officials were aware of hacking.

    And the Democrats’ findings include efforts by the Kremlin to establish a “first contact” with the Trump campaign through an intermediary at the National Rifle Association. In May 2015, the NRA member reached out to Rick Dearborn, a longtime aide to then-Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., now the attorney general, to inform him of Russia’s interest in connecting with the campaign.

    Employees of the White House medical unit said that it often operated like a "grab and go" clinic, allowing mid-level staffers to senior officials to acquire prescription drugs without being seen by a doctor, according to a report by CNN.

    Five current and former medical unit staffers, who wished to remain anonymous, told CNN that prescription medications were given to White House staffers, sometimes without medical consultations by a doctor. This practice was allegedly endorsed by Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, who withdrew his nomination to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs on Thursday following accusations that he wrecked a government vehicle while drunk and handed out opioids to a White House staffer, garnering him the nickname "candy man."

    Jackson denied the allegations. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Jackson remains a doctor in the U.S. Navy assigned to the White House. President Donald Trump defended Jackson Thursday morning in an interview on "Fox & Friends," saying there was "no proof" behind the accusations.
