White House Senior Staffer Resigns After Domestic Abuse Allegations

Those are just some of the "facts" White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah shared with reporters Thursday afternoon at a press briefing originally scheduled for 1:00 PM that did not begin until almost three hours later.

"It's ultimately their determination at the White House whether they want to grant a permanent clearance", said former Federal Bureau of Investigation assistant director Ron Hosko.

As he was peppered with questions, Shah did not rule out the possibility Kelly and other senior White House officials knew about the allegations - which Porter has denied - long before they surfaced in the media.

"We were relying on the information we had", Shah said.

And, finally, when the story about Porter's allegedly beating up both his wives broke, Kelly's first response, according to CNN, was altogether terrible.

Additionally, Superchargers will start generating revenue in 2018 with pay per use charging primarily by Model 3 customers. But unlike with other doomed companies posting dire losses quarter after quarter, Tesla revenues have been sizable.

Porter acknowledged taking 15-year-old photos of the ex-wife with a black eye, but "the reality behind them is nowhere close to what is being described". "I don't now have a statement", he said.

Asked in her daily briefing what the president thought of the photographs of Porter's bruised former wife, Sanders said she had not discussed them with him, and she declined to discuss specifics about Porter's security clearance. Willoughby said Porter wanter her to say that she had "taken some liberties" with her blog post. Kelly, meanwhile, was Porter's loudest defender, including in the first hours after the graphic photos of alleged abuse emerged.

Shah said when the allegations about domestic abuse were made to the FBI, Porter was working at the White House under an interim security clearance while his background check was being completed.

Trump didn't mention Porter when he gathered with lawmakers, members of the military and former Vice President Dick Cheney at the White House on Tuesday evening to watch the movie "12 Strong".

U.S. President Donald Trump (L-R), joined by Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Vice President Mike Pence, senior advisor Steve Bannon, Communications Director Sean Spicer and National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, in the Oval Office. The report and the Daily Mail said Hicks is romantically involved with Porter.

"I was shocked by the new allegations released today against Rob Porter".

According to reports, Porter served in the White House without a full security clearance. Just not enough to speak out against the White House, I guess. She took out the protective order against him in after he allegedly violated a separation agreement and punched through glass in the door of their home, cutting himself. How is that possible that the chief of staff did not know that? Porter returned to the White House on Thursday morning to retrieve belongings, Shah said. She also worked on Trump's campaign and landed a role at the White House's office of public engagement, though what she actually did was a mystery to many.

An acting staff secretary will be named soon, he said.

Ms Holderness, a USA government analyst, said Mr Porter had kicked her on their 2003 honeymoon in the Canary Islands. Kelly, along with Porter, helped organize the West Wing's policy and decision-making process and infused the staff with a clearer sense of goal, officials said. "He's even credited with helping craft Trump's State of the Union address".
