Trump Aides Blamed Lewandowski for Porter ‘Smear’

White House officials told Sen. Orrin Hatch’s (R-UT) office that the story that White House staff secretary Rob Porter had abused his two ex-wives was the product of a “smear campaign” being orchestrated against Porter by his political enemies, the Daily Beast reports.

“Among those they pinpointed was former Trump campaign manager (and current outside adviser to the president) Corey Lewandowski… Multiple White House staffers told Hatch himself that Lewandowski ‘was digging into Rob’s previous marriages,’ recalled one source, who said Porter himself was among the officials who fingered Lewandowski.”

The backstory: Porter is currently romantically-involved with White House communications director Hope Hicks, who previously dated Lewandowski.
