Senior White House Officials Knew of Rob Porter Abuse Allegations

The handsome White House Communications Director is reportedly dating Rob Porter, 40, President Donald Trump 's Staff Secretary who left the White House on February 7 after Willoughby, 39, and another ex-wife came forward with horrifying allegations of physical and emotional abuse.

The comment comes after the White House signaled support for Porter.

Mr Kelly defended Mr Porter earlier this week in a statement, describing the 40-year-old as "a man of true integrity and honour".

"He is a friend, a confidante, and a trusted professional", he continued. "I am proud to serve alongside him".

"A lot of us could have done better", deputy press secretary Raj Shah told reporters when asked about the situation-a rare statement of contrition from the Trump White House.

"The US President Donald Trump and the White House CEO General Jon Kelly had absolute confidence in his abilities and performance", said the spokesman for the US presidency on Wednesday Sarah Hakabi Sanders. Realisation about the seriousness of the abuse allegations grew within the White House after The Intercept published an interview with a second ex-wife and a photo of what she said was a black eye inflicted by Mr Porter.

Porter, as most know at this point, was accused by both his ex-wives of domestic abuse. Therefore they were investigated as part of the background check as this process is meant for such allegations. As the Staff Secretary Rob Porter was responsible for literally every document President Trump saw.

Three ways to avoid these exploits include resetting the TV to factory settings and not agree to the collection of viewing data. The actual act of changing the settings is easy, he adds, but most consumers never bother with fiddling with menu changes.

Porter denies the claims and said in a statement that the "outrageous allegations are simply false".

On Thursday, Shah called the allegations "serious and disturbing".

At any rate, the president is reportedly unhappy with the way the White House has handled the Porter story.

White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter (center left) reminds President Donald Trump he had a bill to sign after he departed quickly following remarks at his golf estate in Bedminster, N.J., on August 12, 2017. Willoughby appeared on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 on February 8 and said of her ex-husband "I don't think he's changed" and had a terrifying prediction for Hicks.

Because the review was still ongoing, Shah said there had been no determination one way or another whether Porter qualified for a permanent security clearance.

"He came and he grabbed me by the shoulders, here, and pulled me out of the shower in a rage", she said. "I've been transparent and truthful about these vile claims, but I will not further engage publicly with a coordinated smear campaign". The guy I've gotten to know over the last few months is a good guy.
