White House aide Rob Porter resigns

White House aide Rob Porter resigns

The revelations have rocked the White House, forcing questions about whether chief of staff John Kelly knew about the allegations.

Archive photo taken on September 1, 2017, White House chief aide Jared Kushner, White House chief of staff John Kelly and White House staff secretary Rob Porter appear.

The White House is embroiled in an explosive domestic scandal, with critics demanding to know how a top aide accused of domestic abuse could work there for a year despite failing to qualify for a security clearance. "One of the best and brightest in the administration", Sanders said in a tweet before Shah took the podium in the historic James S Brady press briefing room of the White House. They're upsetting. And the background check investigates both the allegations and the denials. "I'm not going to get into the specifics, regarding who may have known what pieces of information". And yet Porter kept rising in the White House.

The episode has thrust Trump's senior-most aides, many of whom have already been embroiled in controversy related to special counsel Robert Mueller III's Russian Federation investigation, into yet another crisis.

Despite their history, Willoughby said she never wanted him to lose his White House job, because she thought he was good at it, but "this is a outcome of his actions".

The sad fact of the matter is that this White House has no standards for conduct among its employees, because the head honcho is the worst behaved of all of them.

"It's the full nature of the allegation - particularly the images", Shah said when asked why Kelly changed course.

Bulls Trade Jameer Nelson To Pistons For Willie Reed
Reed, who had played just nine minutes over three games since being acquired with Griffin, didn't appear to be in Detroit's plans. They replenished some of that with the other two acquisitions in the Clippers deal: Willie Reed and Brice Johnson .

Willoughby told the "Today" show Friday that she filed a temporary protective order against Porter after he punched in a door at their home while they were separated, because she "really didn't know what else he was capable of".

And despite their rocky union, it seems that Porter and Willoughby do have a cordial relationship as he called his ex-twice earlier this week about a blog post she was preparing to share about her abuser. Yet Porter had sat in on meetings of the National Security Council where top-secret matters were discussed, according to three people familiar with the situation.

Willoughby also shed new light on the Federal Bureau of Investigation background check into Porter while on Today, and revealed that her ex-husband knew she had said multiple damning statements.

In the aftermath, Trump has told associates he feels that Hicks put her own priorities ahead of his.

"I've been transparent and truthful about these vile claims, but I will not further engage publicly with a coordinated smear campaign", he added.

CNN reported that following their 2003 marriage, Holderness said Porter quickly began to be abusive: "She said that Porter's repeated physically abusive behavior also included throwing her on the bed and forcefully pushing one of his limbs into her body in anger and choking her".

Shah was asked questions about Trump's thoughts concerning legal immigration as it affects Indian immigrants, and those applying for Green Cards through the normal route, as well as on lifting the country quotas for legal immigration, News India Times daily reported.
