White House Under Fire Over Aide Accused Of Serious Domestic Abuse

US White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter resigns after domestic abuse allegations

Both women had details of their troubled marriages to Porter as FBI investigators conducted a routine security background check on him.

Mr Porter's White House role involved working with the president and his chief of staff John Kelly.

But the White House press secretary refused to be drawn on that issue. I asked CWA for comment on Porter. "There is no place for domestic violence in our society". Just not enough to speak out against the White House, I guess. She revisited the accusations that Trump himself has sexually harassed women, allegations he has denied. By the time the president was fully briefed of the claims against Porter on Wednesday, the once-rising White House star had already resigned, according to the official.

Shah said that President Trump's chief of staff, John Kelly, only became aware of allegations against Porter Wednesday. Not that it stopped him from sitting in on briefings where classified information was discussed.

In his statement, Porter said the pictures of Holderness were misleading. Porter never received a permanent clearance. Needless to say, if anyone in a Democratic administration allowed a character like Porter to remain in the White House after receiving evidence of his alleged violence against women, these groups would be calling for the heads of all concerned and denouncing the president for creating an atmosphere where women are not respected.

On Tuesday, The Daily Mail published accounts from two of White House secretary Rob Porter's ex-wives, who claimed he had previously abused them.

An acting staff secretary will be named soon, he said.

"It's unclear what kind of vetting process was followed in this case", Maloney said in a statement.

"There was not a thumbs up or thumbs down", Shah said. She obtained a temporary emergency protective order after the incident with the door.

Home Secretary declares pardons for jailed women to be complicated
To memorialise her rebellious night in parliament, Tony Benn broke the rules by screwing a plaque into the wall of her cupboard. Prof June Purvis of the University of Portsmouth has collected many postcards printed with anti-suffrage messages and imagery.

The Daily Mail published a copy of the order. In the photos, which a reporter for The Intercept said were taken when the couple took a vacation in Italy together, Ms. Holderness has a blackened right eye and a swollen cheekbone.

When asked by the Federal Bureau of Investigation about if Porter could potentially be blackmailed, she told NBC she told agents "maybe".

Though he resigned Wednesday, Porter has continued to deny the allegations.

Porter acknowledged taking 15-year-old photos of the ex-wife with a black eye, but "the reality behind them is nowhere close to what is being described".

"The country needs more honest, principled people like Rob Porter, which is why I hope that this cynical campaign to discredit his character ultimately fails". "I accepted his resignation earlier today, and will ensure a swift and orderly transition".

Holderness did not respond to attempts to contact her by telephone and email. "Therefore, they are best evaluated through the background check process", Raj Shah told reporters in a prepared statement he read from the press room podium.

At first, Kelly praised Porter, hailing him as a "trusted professional" and a friend. "I am proud to serve alongside him".

But on Wednesday evening, one image went viral which showed five individuals, all of whom had held senior postings inside the White House until their very public dismissals. He nearly always accompanies the president when he travels, and frequently can be seen near Trump as he boards Marine One and Air Force One.
