In an appearance on Fox News on Wednesday, Axios’s Jonathan Swan slammed Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) for his handling of the Ronny Jackson nomination.

Tester publicized unproven allegations that as White House doctor, Jackson improperly distributed prescription pills, was drunk on the job, and created a hostile work environment.

Swan argued that none of these accusations had been substantiated and should have never been made public.

“I broke that stupid story on Sunday!” he told Fox’s Bret Baier.

Swan did not include the allegations in his story. “The reason I wrote it that way is not because I didn’t know what the allegations were. I was given them on Friday.”

“I didn’t know if they were true! I have no earthly idea if they’re true or not!” he exclaimed. “Clearly neither does Jon Tester!”

The reporter added that he felt “deep concern and anger” over Tester’s dissemination of the accusations.
