White House Officials Knew About Abuse Allegations

“Allegations of domestic abuse levied against top White House staffer Rob Porter by his ex-wives were known among senior aides to President Donald Trump for months, even as his stock in the West Wing continued to rise,” CNN reports.

“A scramble ensued inside the West Wing to defend him when the claims became public this week, the sources said. That effort continues even after his resignation.”

Vanity Fair reports White House chief of staff John Kelly’s “decision to go to bat for Porter deeply frustrated White House staffers… He was supposed to be the West Wing’s resident grown-up, but staffers are increasingly questioning Kelly’s judgment.”
