Fox News Predictably Quiet On Former White House Aide's Abuse Allegations

The President was unaware of the allegations before Tuesday's report in the Daily Mail about the ex-wives' allegations, two officials told Bloomberg News.

"Background checks involve a complex investigation run by intelligence and law enforcement agencies", Mrs Sanders told reporters.

Shah said that Porter - who has been at the White House for more than a year - was still operating on an interim security clearance because his background check had not been completed.

Rob Porter (Centre) served as a clearinghouse for paperwork destined for or coming from Donald Trump's desk, as well as an important influence on policy in his own right.

"I think it's fair to say we all could have done better dealing with this over the last few days", he said. "Porter was allowed to remain in his position", Cummings wrote in his letter to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina.

Porter has resigned and his last day was Wednesday, the White House said.

Porter was a former chief of staff to Sen.

Porter, a director of staff and responsible, amongst others, for numerous documents that arrived at the office of the USA president to sign, said in a statement that he was resigning despite the "scandalous charges" against him being "false". She told the the same story on February 6 and Porter's first wife Colbie Holderness, 37, came forward the following day with photographs showing a black eye that she claims Porter gave her.

Palestinian killed in clashes during Israeli raid: ministry
Jarrar was the son of a Hamas figure killed by Israeli forces during the second Intifada of the early 2000s. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital last December.

Did the allegations affect his security clearance?

He claimed late Wednesday night that he was "shocked" by the allegations - which the White House had known about generally since late a year ago - and added, "There is no place for domestic violence in our society".

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. While one of his wives has leveled allegations of emotional abuse, the other has alleged suffering physical abuse at the hands of the official.

Kelly initially issued a supportive statement at the time Porter announced his resignation on Wednesday, calling him "a man of true integrity and honor".

White House chief of staff John Kelly was not "fully aware" of the extent of the allegations until Wednesday, Shah added.

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

"It's clear now that those expectations everybody had that Kelly would somehow be the grown-up in the room, a moderating force who would smooth the rough edges off of Trump, were just completely unrealistic", Whipple said.

And previous year, one of Porter's wives, Jennifer Willoughby, wrote about her abusive marriage.
