Communications Director Hope Hicks helped draft The White House's initial statements praising Rob Porter despite being romantically involved with him

Communications Director Hope Hicks helped draft The White House's initial statements praising Rob Porter despite being romantically involved with him

His comments come after Trump last week praised Porter after he resigned following allegations from his two ex-wives of domestic abuse.

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

The Washington Post reported Kelly "believes that Hicks did not tell him all the facts about Porter - and should have recused herself from the matter because she was dating him". Sanders was asked Monday. "That's where we are right now".

White House speech writer David Sorensen resigned Friday after his ex-wife Jessica Corbett alleged that he had run over her foot with a vehicle and extinguished a cigarette on her hand while they were married.

Most recently, the POTUS has made crystal clear he doesn't approve of an ongoing due process that seeks to investigation Russian meddling in 2016's presidential elections. We should encourage those victimized to come forward, we should take their allegations seriously and we should encourage all victims to remove themselves and their children from physical danger immediately, helping them to find alternative living arrangements when necessary.

"I think the President of the United States hopes that all Americans can be successful in whatever they do, and if they've had any issues in the past - I'm not confirming or denying one way or the other - but if they do, the president wants success for all Americans", Sanders said.

"As chief of staff Kelly has said himself, as the president has stated, they both plan on being here for the long haul and doing it together", she added.

"Look, I would not use Vanity Fair for much other than a coaster".

Chief of staff John Kelly, who staunchly defended Porter in the immediate wake of the claims, learned in November that potentially damaging information about Porter could emerge, multiple officials have told CNN. Sorensen was a former top policy adviser to Maine GOP Gov. Paul LePage. Mulvaney, asked about press reports that he was being tapped as Kelly's successor, flatly denied that any such discussions were taking place.

Shah also refused to give details on the involvement of Hicks - who was reportedly dating Porter - in shaping the White House response.

Anything missing there? Such as any mention of the women or expressed concern that maybe they may have also had "a tough time;" such as that possibility making Trump "very sad;" or how he hopes the women have a "great career" ahead of them?

The mounting days of bad press about the handling of Porter - who knew what and when, the problem with his security clearance - are just the latest in a series of instances of Kelly drawing the wrong kind of attention.

"It's alarming Rob Porter remained in an influential role" said Democratic Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster "even as revelations about his domestic abuse were apparently known among senior Trump staffers".
