Second White House staffer resigns amid domestic violence allegations

Second White House staffer resigns amid domestic violence allegations”

Trump on Friday also praised Porter on on-camera comments in which he did not mention the two women Porter allegedly abused. "It's obviously a very tough time for him".

But his suggestion that he would be willing to step down if the president wanted him to reflected the degree to which the scandal surrounding Porter has engulfed the White House. "We urge him to follow through on his instincts". "He says he's innocent, and I think you have to remember that".

The allegations and resignations are bringing Mr Trump's judgement into question, and Democrat Congresswoman Nydia Valazquez said there was a "culture of misogyny". The departure of Porter has roiled Trump's already chaotic White House and prompted criticism of the chief of staf, f John Kelly, over his handling of the situation.

"Before we were contacted by the media, we learned last night that there were allegations", said Raj Shah, principal deputy secretary.

White House speechwriter David Sorensen has resigned amid allegations of domestic abuse, although he denies being violent and said he was actually the victim, according to The Washington Post. Sorensen's job does not require a security clearance. Prior to Kelly's arrival, access to Trump was far more ad hoc, leading to his taking unscheduled meetings with random staff members and receiving "news" items from such unverified sources as the Breitbart News website. Ailes was ousted from Fox news after being accused of assaulting women. Kelly made it clear to Trump on Friday he would resign if that's what the President wanted, though there was little to indicate the President is prepared to immediately dismiss him.

"It's extraordinary that a president would essentially back a disgraced aide who even his chief of staff admits is guilty of spousal abuse", Sabato said.

Although the security clearance approval process is slow and can regularly take more than a year, it's rare for senior aides like Kushner to wait periods longer than three months for permanent approval.

"A lot of us could have done better", Shah told reporters in a rare show of contrition from the Trump White House. "There's no D or R on domestic violence... whether we're talking about Harvey Weinstein, or Bill Clinton, or Steve Wynn, or Rob Porter... all four of the people I just named are reprehensible..."

That third person said that news Mulvaney was under consideration for the chief of staff post was spreading Friday among Republican and donor circles in North Carolina, a stone's throw from the ex-lawmaker's old congressional district that sits right on the SC border.

Kelly and Press Secretary Sarah Sanders both issued statements calling Porter a man of "integrity" in response to the initial Daily Mail report that Porter's two former wives had accused him of abuse.
