'Everybody knows' I'm opposed to domestic violence

'Everybody knows' I'm opposed to domestic violence

It was as if the White House had leaped back in time to the first months of 2017, when finger pointing, anonymous leaks and guessing games about whether key aides were on their way out were near routine.

The FBI obtained photos of the bruised face of Colbie Holderness seven days after President Donald Trump's inauguration a year ago, according to emails obtained by CNN, raising questions about what information White House counsel Don McGahn had at his disposal regarding her ex-husband, Rob Porter.

Jennie Willoughby told CNN that Porter contacted her twice in September to ask if she or his other ex-wife, Colbie Holderness, had told the Federal Bureau of Investigation that he was "violent" during their interviews for his background check.

Porter and Sorensen have denied the allegations and the White House has said that in both cases, background checks were ongoing.

Murphy's bill, her office stated in a news release, aims to codify what she called the "Coats Rule", referencing Dan Coats, President Donald Trump's director of national intelligence, who declared in congressional testimony this week that individuals with interim security clearances should have limited access to secret information.

Pence, however, also acknowledged the Rob Porter allegations could have been handled better by the White House. The White House did not respond to CNN's requests for comment.

As we have all come to discover, the president looks at the world through a lens that is focused only on himself.

Porter's resignation and the White House's handling of the situation shook the administration at the highest level.

"This is a process that doesn't operate within the White House".

Willoughby obtained a protective order against Porter in June 2010 after she said he violated their separation agreement and refused to leave her apartment, according to court records obtained by The Daily Mail.

Porter resigned last week soon after the allegations surfaced. They had to tell the chief of staff at minimum. Kelly later backtracked, saying he was not aware of the full extent of the allegations until The Intercept published photos of Porter's first wife with a black eye on February 7. And last week, it was reported that "30 to 40" White House officials lacked the permanent clearance.

One source said Trump has talked privately about replacing Kelly.

Further, the experts said, it would normally be McGahn's responsibility to alert the president and chief of staff that Porter was not fit to receive classified information. "But it was very sad when we heard about it". The following day, its press secretary told reporters Porter had permanently left that morning.

Sanders later explained Trump's fond wishes for Porter: "The president wants success for all Americans".

"Clearly, we all should be condemning domestic violence", Ryan told reporters.

"I am totally opposed to domestic violence and everybody here knows that", Trump said during a brief appearance in the Oval Office. It's a safe bet that his business interactions with Russians and his involvement in Robert Mueller's Russian investigation have also complicated and prolonged the process.
