The White House And FBI Have Very Different Stories About Rob Porter

John Kelly Committed A Crime By Letting Rob Porter Handle Classified Info Without Security Clearance

Breaking his silence about abuse, President Donald Trump said Wednesday he's "totally opposed to domestic violence".

"We should not short-circuit an investigation just because allegations are made, unless they could compromise national security or interfere with operations at the White House", Shah said. "Everybody knows" his position, Trump said, but "now you hear it".

Former White House staff secretary Rob Porter met off the record with four reporters after The Daily Mail published a photograph of his first wife with a black eye - and he told the journalists that she had fallen and had bruised her eye, according to reports Tuesday. First, Porter was sacked, then he wasn't, next he resigned, cleaned out his desk and was leaving, but not yet. He too denied the allegations.

On a day of shifting explanations and damaging revelations Tuesday, pressure built inexorably on chief of staff John Kelly, who presides over a West Wing flailing amid farcical crisis management and an inability to take a moral stand.

"Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation".

Yesterday's White House press briefing was dominated by the ongoing scandal, CBS reported.

Rachel Maddow damningly laid out how Trump jeopardizes national security with his pattern of allowing people like Mike Flynn and Rob Porter to still handle classified information after the White House has been warned about security clearance problems.

Porter resigned last week amid domestic violence accusations from his ex-wives. "Clearly, we all should be condemning domestic violence", Ryan told reporters.

The New York Times reports Hicks could herself face charges of obstruction of justice in Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders yesterday said the White House Security Office, which received the Federal Bureau of Investigation reports, hadn't made a final recommendation for "adjudication". The FBI's investigation into Porter raised red flags, and yet the White House made a decision to keep Porter on.

Kelly has said that he took action against Porter within 40 minutes of learning on February 8, when the accusations against were first reported by The Daily Mail, that the allegations against him were true. Never. But the White House wanted him on the job - there are reports he was even being considered for a promotion.

'High Degree of Confidence' Daesh Leader Baghdadi Wounded in Airstrike
In recent years, there have been endless conflicting reports about Baghdadi's whereabouts and about whether he is even alive. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said in late July he assumes that Baghdadi is still alive .

"We need to do more to reform the broken security clearance system", Sen.

"That's what we're hearing privately from West Wing officials", Green said.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders arranged the meeting last week with Maggie Haberman of The New York Times, The Washington Post's Josh Dawsey, Jonathan Swan of Axios, and The Wall Street Journal's Michael Bender.

Wray, a Trump appointee, told the Senate Intelligence Committee that the bureau provided a partial report on Porter last March, submitted a completed investigation in late July, and sent requested follow-up information in November.

"I have no reason not to believe these women", she said, a weird bit of phrasing that felt at pains to avoid that cultural marker: I believe the women. "We administratively closed the file in January and then earlier this month we received some additional information and passed that on as well".

The FBI investigated Porter as part of his application for a top-level security clearance for his job, which entailed handling some of the nation's most sensitive documents. But Conway and I definitely agree on one thing she said during that interview: "There's a stigma and a silence surrounding all these issues".

The White House has also faced criticism over President Donald Trump's reaction to the allegations made against Porter, after the outgoing staff secretary received well wishes from POTUS. Kushner's attorney, Abbe Lowell, said in a statement that "there are a dozen or more people at Mr Kushner's level" who are working without full security clearances. The official wasn't authorized to discuss the matter and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Calling for a "revolutionary change" in how the USA government vets its own people, Coats said what's needed is a process that takes advantage of new technologies and information on social media to provide "early awareness of individuals".

It's been a week since the first reports emerged about alleged domestic abuse by White House staff secretary Rob Porter.

Given the sort of coverage Fox has supplied in relation to the Trump administration, we'll take this formula: One Fox & Friends co-host presses a White House official on the news of the day, forcing him into an absurd frenzy of dissembling.
