WH Refutes Reports That General John Kelly Is Leaving Position

David Sorensen  Facebook

Once again: Trump "wished him well" but made no mention at all of the women who have allegedly been hurt by Porter or even the reason why he has been forced out of the White House.

According to the Washington Post, Sorensen denies the claims and said he was victimized by his wife.

A second White House staffer in a week resigned Friday over domestic abuse claims, in a widening scandal that called into question the president's judgment and tainted his chief of staff John Kelly and longtime aide Hope Hicks.

Porter has denied the allegations and blamed a "smear campaign" against him.

The narrative Gen. Kelly pushed Friday runs counter to reports that he kept Porter on staff despite knowledge of the allegations, which prevented him from gaining permanent security clearance from the Federal Bureau of Investigation back in November.

Porter's ex-wives, Colbie Holderness and Jennifer Willoughby, both went public in The Daily Mail with accounts of what they branded as physically and emotionally abusive behaviour.

White House legislative director Marc Short was asked whether Trump had personally waived Porter's interim security clearance, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation made further checks on his background, to allow him to handle the highly classified documents that flow to the president's desk. While reporting on the tweet, some media outlets related Trump's tweet to the #MeToo movement and the concern expressed by some that accused men have been judged in the media and punished without due process. "Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?" he wrote.

The video clip which has gone viral is from the song " Manikya Malaraya Poovi " from the movie " Oru Adaar Love ". After all, her cuteness, charm, beauty and innocence of eyes will definitely make anyone insane for her.

However, Trump had said that Porter's departure was "very sad" and "he did a very good job while he was in the White House".

In his capacity at the White House, Porter was responsible for controlling the flow of documents to the President's desk. Rob Porter has refuted these allegations, saying, "These outrageous allegations are simply false".

Former White House secretary Rob Porter resigned when his two ex-wives came forward and accused him of abuse.

Mr Trump's chief of staff General John Kelly initially praised Mr Porter as a "man of true integrity and honour" when the story came out. And in this case, you have contemporaneous police reports, you have women speaking to the Federal Bureau of Investigation under threat of perjury, you have police reports, you have photographs.

Once photos emerged showing Porter's ex-wife with a badly bruised face, Mulvaney said, "he was gone nearly immediately". But, Short emphasized that there is "no tolerance for domestic abuse".
