Trump Aide Accused of Abusing His Ex-Wife

An ex-wife of Trump aide Rob Porter — who is currently dating White House communications director Hope Hicks — tells the Daily Mail that he “choked, punched and belittled her about her weight her during their five-year marriage.”

Axios reports Porter has resigned with this statement:

These outrageous allegations are simply false. I took the photos given to the media nearly 15 years ago and the reality behind them is nowhere close to what is being described. I have been transparent and truthful about these vile claims, but I will not further engage publicly with a coordinated smear campaign.

The Intercept reports the FBI discovered the abuse of Porter’s ex-wives during a background check.
