Conway Defends Trump Response To Abuse Allegations Against Ex-Aide

Over the course of the previous year, we've seen firsthand the lack of support for women coming from the Oval Office - from claiming the women who accused Trump of sexual assault are liars, to the recent scandal involving a White House staffer accused of domestic violence.

Spokesman Raj Shah said David Sorenson, a speechwriter for the Council on Environmental Quality, resigned Friday.

Porter has denied the allegation. Sorenson's ex-wife had told the Post that he was violent and emotionally abusive during their short marriage. "I think the president, like the rest of us, were shocked and disturbed by the allegations".

Trump is said to get along better with Hicks than with any other aides, and she is the longest-serving West Wing staffer outside of members of Trump's family.

As you may already know, the man resigned after he was accused of domestic abuse towards both of his former wives.

"What's "sad" is having a complete moral vacuum in the Oval Office".

The Post interviewed two friends and associates of Ms Corbett who said that she had told them about the abuse at the time.

In June 2017, Mr Porter's preliminary file was sent from the Federal Bureau of Investigation to the White House security office, containing the abuse allegations.

"And hopefully he will have a great career ahead of him", he added.

Kelly himself faced criticism for initially defending his aide - only to later shift course after the publication of photos showing one of Porter's ex-wives with a black eye. "Due process is critical, but it can't be a pretext for not believing women".

Other White House officials have said it was the release of the photos Wednesday morning that sealed Porter's fate.

But the president's latest comments suggest that this week's resignations - particularly Porter's - were jolting at the highest levels. Critics say Kelly should have been more concerned about employees working without security clearances.

Apparently, they still take place-officials reportedly learned of the abuse claims against Porter during his background check months ago-but if nobody's going to actually pursue the claims made against a member of the highest governmental body in the USA, what the hell is the point of having them in the first place? He also, as you probably know, says he's innocent and you have to remember that. "I asked him again. Domestic violence and abuse must always be aggressively condemned", Lieu wrote.

Porter's departure, along with Kelly under fire, could deprive the West Wing of some of its steadier hands and anxious some staffers that the sense of order that been installed in recent months could evaporate.

Porter, a Rhodes scholar and Harvard-educated lawyer, played an important role in deciding which articles and policy proposals were given to the president for his review.

This comes after the former Celebrity Apprentice star addressed White House aid Rob Porter's departure.

WaPo reports that while Sorensen said he'd "hoped never to have to discuss his ex-wife and their tumultuous marriage", he views news of the allegations as "an opportunity to highlight the grossly underreported and unacknowledged issue of female-on-male domestic violence". I took the photos given to the media almost 15 years ago. "I've been transparent and truthful about these vile claims, but I will not further engage publicly with a coordinated smear campaign".
