Today, President Trump tweeted,

Allegations made by Senator Jon Tester against Admiral/Doctor Ron Jackson are proving false. The Secret Service is unable to confirm (in fact they deny) any of the phony Democrat charges...

I found this odd (I'm not very politically savvy to say the least.) Is it the Secret Service's job to investigate a senator's claims about a Cabinet nominee?

On SecretService.gov, the investigative duties listed include

...threats against Secret Service protectees as well as financial crimes, which include counterfeiting of U.S. currency or other U.S. Government obligations; forgery or theft of U.S. Treasury checks, bonds or other securities; credit card fraud; telecommunications fraud; computer fraud, identify fraud and certain other crimes affecting federally insured financial institutions.

Not looking to debate or nit-pick. I know the vehicular claim was erroneous.
