The Mike Pence army doctor accused of crafting the allegations against defeated VA Secretary pick Admiral Ronny Jackson was also filed a sexual harassment claim against a VA whistleblower.
Pence’s doctor Dr. Jennifer Pena now stands accused of going after Ronny Jackson in a war between the vice president and president’s personal doctors that led to Jackson getting smeared. Pena has been accused of smearing a VA whistleblower who she allegedly had an affair with, according to a wild bombshell whistleblower report.
Whistleblowers face massive retaliation with the Department of Veterans Affairs, because the bureaucracy seeks to keep quiet all of the allegations of poor care and neglectful or downright criminal conduct (like the kind I famously reported on in early 2014, when I caught VA officials on tape deleting patient medical requests).
A message left for the vice president’s team was not returned as of press time.
The allegations against Jackson — that he drank too much at work and was known as “Dr. Feelgood” for allegedly handing out painkillers to White House staffers — were called completely false by President Donald Trump. But that didn’t stop Democrat Senator Jon Tester of Montana from pushing the claims (and engendering Trump’s wrath in the upcoming midterm election).
But the allegations came from Pence-World, which is well known for pushing against Trump-World in the White House. And the relative immaturity of the allegations — in tone and substance — point to a woman who has made quite a name for herself in the administration.
Sara Carter reports: “According to four administration officials, the main allegations were brought forth by Vice President Mike Pence’s Army physician Dr. Jennifer Pena, who is assigned to Pence by the White House Medical Unit and does not work directly for the office of the Vice President. Those officials contend Pena has held a long-time grudge against Jackson because of his continuing promotions in the White House. She began her career at the White House during the Obama administration. According to the officials, Pena, who is still active military and assigned to the White House Military Office, did not follow proper protocol to report on the allegations. Instead, she went directly to the Senate with the support of some current and former White House medical staff who were her loyalists. None of the allegations she allegedly brought forth have been substantiated.”
Here is Dr. Pena with her girlfriends:
A remarkable story was written in 2010 on the Army Doc Whistleblower blog, which makes stunning allegations regarding Pena in a romantic scheme with a pseudonymously named VA whistleblower. The whistleblower got investigated and punished for complaining about VA abuse :
According to the subsequent investigation, Dr. Pena had unsuccessfully sought a romantic relationship with Dr. Czr while she was engaged to her first fiancé. However, during the investigation, she falsely claimed she wanted nothing but a professional relationship with Dr. Czr and that she had rejected his advances numerous times. Yet she had divulged personal matters in her life such as her induction into Yale’s Skull and Bones Society, her mother losing her job, and her fiancé’s infidelity. In addition, Dr. Pena shared with Dr. Czr a childhood story when her father, a formal army pharmacist, asked the judge at a custody hearing why should he pay child support when he knew his daughters would grow up to be prostitutes. Finally, records show that Dr. Czr and his wife reported that Dr. Pena was pursuing to break up Dr. Czr’s marriage and had bought Dr. Czr a gift during this same time period that Dr. Pena was allegedly sexually harassed. In the investigation, Dr. Czr stated that Dr. Pena began making frightening comments to him such as she hoped that his wife would have something “bad happen” so she could be with Dr. Czr and that Dr. Pena claimed she could be a better mother than his wife.
Colonel Baunchalk and his lawyers then influenced the investigation and falsely represented the findings of the investigation. Despite Colonel Baunchalk’s request to extend the investigation, he failed to interview 4 of 7 witnesses requested by Dr. Czr. One of these witnesses later wrote that she had witnessed Dr. Pena pursuing a relationship with Dr. Czr. Colonel Baunchalk also ignored Dr. Czr’s photographic evidence of Dr. Pena’s text messages from her to him that solicited him for a sexual/romantic relationship…
Dr. Pena’s transfer to Walter Reed was known since December 2008 and her stated reason was to be near her first fiancé, a civilian anesthesiology intern, who lived on the East Coast. Unknown to the program and to the investigating officer was that Dr. Pena’s first fiancé ended the engagement in December 2008. However, Dr. Pena continued to lie about her engagement to avoid having her transfer canceled. During the investigation, Dr. Pena continued to claim she was engaged to her first fiancé but denied the investigating officer access to him. Records show that Dr. Pena was actually engaged to Major Christopher Flaugh, a physical therapist at William Beaumont Army Medical Center at or near the time of her sexual harassment claim. Major Flaugh would soon transfer to Walter Reed after Dr. Pena’s transfer in July 2009. Colonel Baunchalk’s lawyers also refused to interview Major Christopher Flaugh at the request of Dr. Czr.
Records also show that Dr. Pena was well-known for her lewd, hypersexual behavior and sexually-explicit comments. In a statement by Dr. Czr’s wife, Dr. Pena had once asked her and several other women during a social dinner if they preferred to spit or swallow in reference to oral sex. One of the people interviewed in the investigation reported how Dr. Pena had snuck into his bed after he had fallen asleep while she was engaged to her first fiancé. In addition, Dr. Pena was also dating a medical student in El Paso while she was engaged to her first fiancé. Later, Dr. Czr would reveal that Dr. Pena had sexually assaulted him in call room in November 2008. The Criminal Investigative Division of the Army is currently investigating Dr. Pena for this sexual assault…”
