Trump offers his sympathy to aide accused of abuse

Dozens of White House employees are awaiting permanent security clearances and have been working for months with temporary approvals to handle sensitive information while the Federal Bureau of Investigation continues to probe their backgrounds, according to US officials.

A source close to Mulvaney confirms that discussions are "ongoing" and that the OMB director is aware that the President would like him to potentially be chief of staff.

The thrice-married Trump has been accused of improper behavior with women, and boasted of it in the famous Access Hollywood tape that surfaced weeks before the 2016 election. "I found out about it recently and I was surprised by it", Trump said in brief remarks from the White House.

Jennie Willoughby is one of two ex-wives of White House aide, Rob Porter alleging emotional and physical abuse. Holderness, a 37-year-old senior analyst at the U.S. Government Accountability Office, said she provided photos of the black eye she said he delivered during a 2005 vacation in Florence, Italy. Willoughby says he dragged her wet and naked out of the shower and was verbally abusive.

'I was surprised by it. "We hope he has a wonderful career and hopefully he will have a great career ahead of him him".

Despite the possible issues with the clearance-granting process, it was still the Trump White House that chose to hire Flynn in a position that would allow him to take advantage of that clearance even after President Barack Obama personally warned then-President-elect Donald Trump about Flynn.

"We wish him well, he worked very hard", Trump told reporters Friday afternoon. The New York Times also reported that Kelly told West Wing officials that he was willing to resign.

"I can tell you that Rob has been effective in his role as staff secretary, and the president and chief of staff have had full confidence and trust in his abilities and his performance", she told reporters.

Talk about Porter's past started spreading throughout the White House after a former girlfriend told McGahn in November that he should investigate the abuse alleged by the ex-wives, according to people familiar with the matter.

"There is no place for domestic violence in our society", Kelly said in the second statement.

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was leading those operations until he was booted just after the election and replaced at the top of the president's transition team by the vice president.

Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., tweeted about Kelly's comments about both DACA recipients and his initial defense of Porter late Wednesday, highlighting them as two of his most controversial comments while in office. He side-stepped questions about Porter from his traveling press corps on Thursday in Japan. And I learned, as I awoke this morning, of those developments.

The vice president wasn't able to duck Holt's questioning as easy, however, in his interview NBC host before he departed South Korea. "We'll comment on any issues affecting White House staff when we get back to Washington", he said.

"I think the White House has acknowledged they could have handled it better and when I return to Washington, DC, I'm going to look into the matter and I'll share my counsel with the president directly".
