U.S. White House staff secretary Rob Porter said on Wednesday he would resign following accusations of domestic abuse from two former wives.
Colbie Holderness, Porter's first wife, told the Daily Mail that he was "verbally, emotionally and physically abusive, and that is why I left".
Holderness, 37, told the Daily Mail that Porter started abusing her after their marriage in 2000. "I took the photos. and the reality behind them is nowhere close to what is being described", he said.
A pair of photos showed Holderness with a badly bruised eye, which she claimed was the result of being punched by Porter. Porter adds that he has been transparent and truthful, but will leave the White House after a transition period. During the White House briefing on Wednesday, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Porter had been "effective in his role" and the president had "confidence in his performance". "In every interaction I've had with Rob, he has been courteous, professional, and respectful", he said.
"I was shocked by the new allegations released today against Rob Porter". She said he broke her window.
As staff secretary, Porter's responsibility was mainly in the flow of paper that crossed Trump's desk, including the wave of executive orders and actions that Trump inked during the first months of his tenure.
The Daily Mail had recently suggested he was in a relationship with Trump's communications advisor Hope Hicks.
Lawrence O'Donnell was paying attention, and he gave the people who tried to keep a person like Rob Porter employed at the White House, the contempt, scorn, and disgust that they deserved.
In her office after she announced Porter's resignation, Sanders said that "of course" the Trump White House condemned domestic violence of any kind.
Representative Sean Patrick Maloney, Democrat of NY, who served as staff secretary to President Bill Clinton from 1999 to 2000, called for the House Oversight Committee to open an investigation into whether Porter was allowed to access confidential materials without a security clearance, and whether Kelly had knowledge of the abuse allegations.
However, Kelly said: "Rob Porter is a man of true integrity and honour and I can't say enough good things about him". If a White House would have changed their story, or been reluctant to fire the man who committed acts of domestic violence the howls of scorn would have been volcanic, but in the Trump White House a man who commits crimes against women is a typical Wednesday. "And I would prefer him not to resign, just work his way through and do what's right".
The claims reportedly came up during interviews that Porter's ex-wives gave to the Federal Bureau of Investigation as part of Porter's background check, CNN said, adding that he was having trouble obtaining a security clearance because of them. In other words, he will go to a White House where he fits in. He also traveled with Trump on Air Force One and was frequently seen by the president's side. Kelly himself remained behind in Washington, as did the top policy adviser Stephen Miller. He's been approached by private sector firms over the past several months with offers to leave the administration, and has considered them, but told colleagues earlier this year that he wasn't planning on leaving the White House, the person said.
