Jeff Flake: 'Understatement' that White House mishandled Rob Porter situation

"Some are old and some are new", Trump said. "There is no recovery for someone falsely accused - life and career are gone".

The controversy has embroiled the White House given senior White House aides - including chief of staff John Kelly - were supposedly made aware of the allegations against Porter in November after the Federal Bureau of Investigation learned about them during a background check. "In fact, I was the victim of repeated physical violence during our marriage, not her", the Post reported.

White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter resigned from his job last week amid allegations of domestic abuse.

On the former, she said she had "no reason not to believe" accusations of abuse made by the two ex-wives of White House staff secretary Rob Porter, who resigned Wednesday.

Donald Trump totally ignored the desperate cries of multiple women who came forward to make allegations about #Roy Moore's alleged sexual misconduct.

Reuters has not independently confirmed the allegations. Wynn denies any harassment or abuse.

It isn't just Trump officials who have come to Kelly's defense, however. "President Trump continues to claim the 5 black men from the Central Park jogger case are guilty", O'Brien tweeted.

Willoughby, Porter's second wife, now says she is "floored" by Trump's continued support of his ex-staffer in the face of what she says is "overwhelming evidence" of his abuse.

I think the issue here is deeper than whether Trump, or General John Kelly, or Sarah Huckabee Sanders, or Senator Orrin Hatch, or Hope Hicks, or whether anyone else believes me or defends Rob. He further noted that he found out about the allegations "recently", and that he was "surprised". Look what he's done.

"I was horrified and I was also very shocked". "But we absolutely wish him well". "John Kelly knows that he serves at the pleasure of the president and he will step aside as soon as - any time the president doesn't want him to be there".

Short said the president has been upset over the years by accusations against himself and is "saddened" by the allegations against Porter, adding, "I think he's very disturbed by it, and I think he's very disappointed. I think all this talk about the chief's departure is much ado about nothing". He said very strongly yesterday that he's innocent'. She denied reports that Trump might be considering her as a replacement.

Mr Trump's latest comments suggest that this week's resignations - particularly Mr Porter's - were jolting at the highest levels.

Donald Trump despises the #MeToo movement because he says it hurts CEOs by making it easy for female employees to sue. "The President has shown through words and actions that he doesn't value women", she added. "That Colbie Holderness is a liar", Willoughby wrote referring to Porter's first wife, who also accused him of abuse.
