HIPAA: May 1, 2018

Dear Mr. VP,

CNN (I know, FAKE NEWS!) ran a story yesterday about how your personal physician (also Karen’s) raised concerns about Ronny Jackson after he violated her federal privacy protections.

According to copies of internal documents obtained by CNN, Pence’s doctor accused Jackson of overstepping his authority and inappropriately intervening in a medical situation involving the second lady as well as potentially violating federal privacy rights by briefing White House staff and disclosing details to other medical providers — but not appropriately consulting with the vice president’s physician.

This is how you get rewarded for loyalty in the Trump White House. Your boss names the man who violated your wife’s HIPAA rights to head the second largest bureaucracy in the United States.
