White House aide resigns after allegations of spousal abuse

White House aide resigns after allegations of spousal abuse

Porter served as the assistant to the president and White House staff secretary.

His first spouse, Ms Holderness, said the White House aide had been verbally and physically abusive.

Even those who originally praised Trump's selection of Kelly as chief of staff now have second thoughts.

Cummings recently revealed that the Department of Defense approved 165 interim security clearances over a three-year period, giving access to the government's sensitive and secret information to people who later failed background checks. I have always put duty to country first and treated others with respect. "What he's done as chief of staff doesn't undo what he did as a heroic war figure, but it diminishes him as a person, and that's regrettable". "I did describe my marriage in detail". "Domestic violence in any form is abhorrent and unacceptable".

By Wednesday night, the White House's tune changed yet again, and a senior administration official said Porter would leave the White House in the next 48 hours, according to the Washington Post. He is a a Harvard Law School graduate and worked as chief of staff to Utah Republican Sen.

A few months after he started working for Hatch, he got promoted to chief of staff. There's also former communications director Anthony Scaramucci and Fox News anchor Kimberly Guilfoyle. "Porter was allowed to remain in his position", Cummings wrote in his letter to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina. "They are upsetting", Shah said. Hicks also pushed for Porter to stay on, according to CNN.

Shah insisted on Thursday that Kelly and Trump did not become aware of the allegations against Porter until stories about the spousal abuse surfaced this week.

At first, Kelly defended Porter as "a man of true integrity and honor".

Porter has denied the allegations, saying today in a statement that the new Daily Mail reports amount to a "coordinated smear campaign". Porter left only after Ms. Willoughby had asked him to leave several times.

Holdnerness married Porter in 2003, and told CNN on Wednesday that the physical abuse began nearly immediately.

He said that "no waivers and no special treatment" was given to Porter during the credential process.

Both of his ex-wives detailed physical and verbal abuse in prior press reports.

She also told The Intercept that when she went to her bishop about Porter's anger issues, he cautioned that it could hurt Porter's image.

Willoughby married Porter in 2009, and told CNN she endured emotional abuse from Porter that included "intense" bursts of anger. He noted that Porter has denied the allegations, and continues to do so.

Moments after he announced that he would step down, Prorter said the claims made against him by his two ex-wives "are simply false".

His last day at the White House is now today.
