Gen. John HeytenAnother of President Donald Trump's nominations for a top Pentagon post is potentially in peril amid accusations of inappropriate conduct.

The Air Force Office of Special Investigations cleared Air Force Gen. John Hyten of wrongdoing after a senior officer alleged he subjected her to unwanted sexual advances. But a key lawmaker helping to vet his nomination to be vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is raising concerns about the integrity of the probe.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a member of the Armed Services Committee and the top Democrat on its personnel subcommittee, wrote to Acting Secretary of Defense Mark Esper Friday asking him to personally review the case and saying she is "not prepared to move forward with consideration of General Hyten’s candidacy for the second highest military office in our nation without, at minimum, such a thorough review."
