Home Media Trump Chief Of Staff John Kelly Has Been A Complete Failure By Farron Cousins- February 9

On Friday, Trump told journalists in the Oval Office he wished Porter "a wonderful career", adding: "He says he's innocent, and I think you have to remember that". "It should be able to focus on President [Donald] Trump's historic achievements for the American people", Sorensen claimed.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is facing continued scrutiny over his handling of domestic abuse accusations against a former senior aide.

Kelly - who has evidently known about the credible allegations for months - initially defended Porter as a "man of true integrity and honor" and reportedly attempted to dissuade him from stepping down. It's all she has left. Porter's efforts to do so had included accusing his ex-wives of taking part in "a coördinated smear campaign".

Hicks is one of the President's longest-serving White House confidantes, lasting through numerous campaign and White House shakeups.

"Hope is absolutely fantastic", Trump said in a statement to the NYT released through a spokesman Friday. And Porter was forced to resign Wednesday. A photo also circulated of one of his accusers with a black eye that Porter allegedly gave her.

"Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation". Casino mogul Steve Wynn, a prominent Republican donor and Trump friend, is among the latest powerful men to lose their jobs over such allegations.

"McColum also called for a Congressional investigation into the "reckless conduct of the inner circle in the White House with classified national security documents", as well as which White House staff were aware of Porter's repeated domestic violence, and why John Kelly allowed Porter to handle classified information". "He simply seemed to defend his former White House staff secretary".

The official said White House counsel Don McGahn was apprised of at least some of the accusations about Porter at least four times, including as early as January 2017. "And I have to say, you know, I used to say you know, what everyone, what anyone thinks the job is, just multiply it by 50". And they came amid rampant White House finger-pointing about who knew what, and when, about the severity of the spousal abuse allegations.

But later in the day, the White House dealt far more aggressively with another allegation of abuse. "We immediately confronted the staffer, he denied the allegations and he resigned today", said Shah. But people close to Trump said the president had begun the process of making the job so unpleasant for Kelly that it might hasten his departure, the same sort of ritual humiliation to which he subjected Reince Priebus, his first chief of staff, before his departure in July.

When I appeared before Congress to discuss clearance issues, I was constantly reminded that we should not grant such clearances if there was any reason to believe that the person might be subject to pressures that would make him or her untrustworthy.

Sorensen resigned on Friday after his former wife claimed that he was violent and emotionally abusive during their marriage.

"That's like saying that axe murderer out there, he's a great painter", said former Vice President Joe Biden.

Of course, what can we expect from an administration led by a man who faces over a dozen allegation of sexual assault himself and who was caught bragging on tape about groping women?
