Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price was forced to resign on Wednesday after a series of controversies over his decision to refuse to release his medical records.
Price resigned after The Washington Post published a report detailing his interactions with lawmakers about his private health practice, including an appearance on MSNBC and a meeting with former Rep. Anthony Weiner.
The Post said that when Price was asked by a congressman about the issue, he told him, “Well, I haven’t seen the reports.”
Price denied the report, calling the information “fake news.”
But in a tweet on Wednesday, Price said he had seen the report and confirmed that he had no record of his meetings with the congressman.
The Washington Post reports that Price was a doctor when he ran the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services from 2015 to 2017.
The newspaper said the congressman had an office in the building that included a physician’s office and a health clinic.
