Trump Calls for Due Process in Tweet: 'Lives Are Being Shattered' by 'Mere' Allegations

Trump Defends Accused Domestic Abusers: 'No Recovery for Someone Falsely Accused'

Amid reports that President Trump was considering getting rid of his chief of staff, Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN's State of the Union with Jake Tapper to claim otherwise.

As Chief of Staff Kelly's future in the White House is unknown, he has expressed in private his willingness to resign if President Trump wishes. "It's not surprising that he doesn't believe survivors or understand the national conversation that is happening", Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, wrote on Twitter.

A new report has revealed that dozens of White House employees exposed daily to top secret information are working without top-level security clearances. Trump also denies all allegations of sexual misconduct, with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders even going as far to suggest in October that all of his accusers were "lying".

Then in November, Porter informed Chief of Staff John Kelly that his ex-wives had made accusations that Porter denies.

"I found out about it recently and I was surprised by it", Trump said. Sorensen's ex-wife, Jessica Corbett, had accused him of physical abuse, saying that the incident "left her fearing for her life".

In criticising the #MeToo movement and showing support for the accused over the abused, Trump continues to endanger a collective of men and women already fearful of speaking up about their experiences of assault and harassment amid the shadows of doubt. Wallace said Trump was running the White House "like a freak show" in January after comments surfaced that he reportedly called Haiti and African nations "shithole countries".

"I think in the process there was probably a lack of communication between different elements in the White House", he said. Casino mogul Steve Wynn, a prominent Republican donor and Trump friend, is among the latest powerful men to lose their jobs over such allegations. "I think he's very disturbed by it, and I think he's very disappointed".

"I was appalled when I learned of the allegations against Rob Porter", Pence said in an NBC interview Friday from South Korea, where he was attending the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics. "They are not true.' As soon as Rob Porter was proven wrong, he was not telling the truth, when the photos came out Wednesday, he was gone nearly immediately".

Donald Trump has questioned due process after a White House staff member was accused of abuse.

Former deputy staff secretary Derek Lyons has been promoted to acting staff secretary.

Trump has also tapped former Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Carroll to serve as the next drug czar.

Conway, however, said Trump is "very disturbed" by Porter's alleged behavior, a remark that White House legislative affairs director Marc Short echoed on Sunday.

His two ex-wives said they spoke to the Federal Bureau of Investigation during its standard background check on the White House official who was seeking a government security clearance for his high-level position.

Porter's resignation was announced Wednesday, just hours after a photograph was published of Holderness with a black eye, allegedly inflicted by Porter.
