White House staffer resigns after ex-wife accuses violence and emotional abuse

In the Washington Post story, Sorensen refutes the allegations of abuse and says that he was resigning so as not to distract from Trump's presidents.

A White House spokesman said when confronted, Sorenson denied the allegations but resigned on Friday. As per reports, Sorensen's ex-wife claimed he was violent and emotionally abusive during their short-lived marriage.

White House staffer David Sorensen has resigned amid allegations of spousal abuse, two White House officials confirmed to CBS News.

Trump emphasized that Porter maintains his innocence, and the president made no mention of the women who have reported physical and emotional abuse. Jessica Corbett spoke to the Washington Post in an interview that was published on February 9. Porter resigned after his ex-wives' allegations became public. "He said very strongly yesterday that he's innocent, so you'll have to talk to him about that".

But for White House staff, protected privacy may not cover all the information unearthed during the background check as the process consists of two separate reviews - one for clearance and one for suitability, Zaid said.

That doesn't sound like the Trump I know.

"Everyone can think you're the most wonderful guy, but you're throwing women into walls by night", she told the Post. But the aftershocks of his resignation continue amid concerns about his access to classified information. Kelly told reporters on Friday that he was informed in November that Porter had allegations against him that were delaying his security clearance, but that he did not know the full extent until this week, MSNBC said. It was the chief of staff who'd issued an initial statement in lavish support of that man, despite multiple women's claims.

Porter resigned Wednesday in the aftermath of his two ex-wives describing his alleged abuse. Zaid said people often operate with interim clearances for months.

"Before we were contacted by the media, we learned last night that there were allegations", Deputy White House press secretary Raj Shah said. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who is now dating White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, was married to Colbie Holderness in 2003 and Jennie Willoughby in 2009.

Shah said Thursday that Hicks later "recused" herself from some aspects of the matter, but it was unclear from what.

Hicks, perhaps Trump's most trusted aide, had helped craft the response to the scandal as White House communications director, despite being romantically involved with Porter.

According to Politico, officials had not yet completed a background check on Sorensen.

The president, for his part, has not signaled to allies that he is on the verge of making a change. Later, Axios predicted a "glut of stories" on Kelly's character and motivations, "along with speculation about consequences for him". Questioning the credibility of a woman who claims she's been abused?

The White House was already under scrutiny over its handling of Porter's departure who announced his resignation on Wednesday. The shock and awe emanating from the White House about Porter aren't so much a commentary on the man, but testament to the surreal and potentially perilous incompetence surrounding the president.

My #FridayFeeling is this is not going to end well for John Kelly. Jon Tester, D-Mont., told CNN's "New Day", adding, "He better have a really good reason".

She added, "Deny and defend". "The truth must be determined, and that is what was going on with Rob Porter".

Six months later, the Federal Bureau of Investigation told McGahn that accusations of domestic abuse had indeed surfaced in Porter's background check.

"I found out about it recently and I was surprised by it", the president said.
