Rob Porter's Second Wife: I Am Not Part of a Smear Campaign

"It's one of the things that women who are victims struggle with the most". Mr. Trump has rarely made criticisms about.

In her CNN interview, Willoughby explained that she had stood by her piece since it was published previous year, including in the days leading up to the scandal. On Tuesday, White House staffer Rob Porter, who was married to Willoughby from 2009 to 2013, was revealed by the Daily Mail to be the husband described on the blog. "The truth must be determined, and that was what was going on with Rob Porter". The entire White House's knee-jerk reaction to allegations is to believe the accused man and call the woman a liar spreading fake news. Some in the White House were quick to jump to his defense.

"I went back and forth with him for an hour about what language I would be comfortable with, and ultimately the language that he asked I wasn't comfortable with", she said.

In a late phone call Thursday, McGahn said Porter did not tell him one year ago that his ex-wives accused him of domestic violence.

They had also described the marriages with the Federal Bureau of Investigation a year ago as part of a background check for his job.

For the past year, he was working with an "interim" clearance. The former girlfriend, who also works in the administration, declined to comment Thursday.

Shah also refused to give details about whether Trump communications advisor Hope Hicks-who was reportedly dating Porter-was involved in shaping the White House response to the scandal.

Willoughby took out a temporary protective order in 2010, which according to the Post said that "reasonable grounds exist to believe that [Porter] has committed family abuse and there is probable danger of a further such offense". They confirmed their account of their allegations to NBC News.

In a subsequent television interview, Kelly, the former Department of Homeland Security secretary, said the president had "evolved in the way he looks at things" - drawing a rebuke from Trump on Twitter, who said his plan had "never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it".

Locust Grove Elementary School, which was nearby, was put on lockdown during the response to the incident. "It's tranquil. One is in serious condition, according to the Henry County Sheriff's Department, while the other is in fair condition.

Senate Leaders Reach 2-Year Budget Deal
"We have to be strong as a country... to respect the aspirations of people who are our future", Pelosi said on the House floor. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky called the plan a "significant agreement" that gives both parties what they want.

Tesla Posts Narrower-Than-Expected Q4 Loss
The number of supercharger stations, meanwhile, rose to 1,128 after opening 338 new locations during 2017, Tesla said. Tesla's Autopilot program has been going through a period of upheaval, with three division leaders in roughly a year.

The White House officials told Hatch's office that the story was the product of a "smear campaign" being orchestrated against Porter by his political enemies.

Ahead of his debut behind press briefing podium, his boss Sarah Sanders, the White House Press Secretary, described him as one of the best and the brightest in the Trump Administration.

"That's a question I get asked a lot, 'Why did you stay if he was such a quote-unquote monster, '" Willoughby told Cooper.

Shah said that Kelly only became "fully aware" of the allegations this week. Holderness says Porter kicked her, chocked her, and punched her in the face on their honeymoon.

On Thursday, the Post also reported that Porter has been explaining the pictures of Holderness' black eye, which she has distributed to the media, saying that "they were arguing over a vase, and she was somehow hit with the vase". But White House officials said Kelly pushed Porter to stay in the job even after the release of the photos.

"The President wants to see legal immigration reforms".

'I was part of the background check and I was completely honest with my experience of the marriage, telling them instances of abuse or police contact, ' stated Willoughby.

The FBI had contacts with the ex-wives a second time, in September.

She recalled an incident in which Porter allegedly followed her to the bathroom during a prolonged fight, grabbed her by the shoulders and dragged her out of the shower "to continue the rage". Porter was angry, she said, that he had still not received his security clearance.
