"He became fully aware about these allegations yesterday", said Shah.
Even after the allegations were made public, Kelly offered an unqualified endorsement of Porter and reportedly tried to convince him not to resign. A White House staffer familiar with the president's thinking said Trump feels Kelly "does a good job" and said that Trump rises to Kelly's defence when it seems the news media is out to get him. But, a year into his job, Porter did not have the permanent security clearance that aides of his rank always have.
His second wife, Jennifer Willoughby, also told the Daily Mail how Porter once dragged her naked and wet from the shower to yell at her.
The email details those conversations, including one in which Cunningham allegedly reacted positively when Holderness said his wife was not inclined to talk to the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding Porter's background check. She never mentions Porter by name.
First, the chief of staff was recorded musing that some of the young people who failed to apply for relief under President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program did so because they "were too lazy to get off their asses". Less than two months after that, I filed a protective order with the police because he punched in the glass on our front door while I was locked inside. He left the property after she read her name and address aloud to a 911 dispatcher. If they're not, I'll come back and apologize.

According to the company , it will cost just $90 million per launch, a fraction of the price of similar heavy-lift rockets. The 37-word exchange between the two billionaire businessmen is a step forward in their shaky relationship.
The Family Leader, headed by a major player in evangelical politics, Bob Vander Plaats, says its mission is to "strengthen families, by inspiring Christ-like leadership in the home, the church, and the government".
Porter acknowledged taking 15-year-old photos of the ex-wife with a black eye, but "the reality behind them is nowhere close to what is being described".
Shah further responded that the change in early statements from White House senior staff on the allegations related to each commenter's knowledge of Porter based on working with him.
Porter said in a statement that the allegations by two former wives were "outrageous" and "simply false".
"Rob is not only a brilliant leader, he is also a dear friend and a trusted confidante who has my full confidence and support", he said at the time.
Cavs deal Thomas for Clarkson, Nance
Wade played 13 seasons in Miami, winning three National Basketball Association titles - two of them with LeBron James . The key to standing pat has been the development Clarkson and Randle have shown this season.
Cummings has repeatedly pressed Gowdy to subpoena the White House - and asked the White House directly - for information regarding the security clearances Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, President Trump's former national security adviser, and Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser. While announcing his resignation, Porter vehemently denied the accusations of abuse.
But according to Shah, who seemed flustered by the wave of questions over the Porter scandal Thursday, said that the reports "were not reflective of the individual we've come to know". "Domestic violence in any form is abhorrent and unacceptable".
Aware of Hatch's comments, Willoughby said she would let her story speak for itself.
Now, can we say we are surprised by the appalling lack of moral conviction displayed here? No.
When asked if the administration believed women who did not have photographs of their abuse, Shah said, "I don't think any standard applies". "And, in capital letters, abusive and manipulative and toxic in his personal relationships".
