Another White House aide resigns amid domestic abuse allegations

Another White House aide resigns amid domestic abuse allegations

"The biggest concern that I have and all of us who devote our lives to helping victims escape the abuse is what this does to diminish the fact that the behavior is a crime", she said.

The White House has announced who will replace former staff secretary Rob Porter, who resigned this week amid domestic abuse allegations. Moore denied the allegations. Sorensen said in a text message to the newspaper he resigned because he, "didn't want the White House to have to deal with this distraction".

Chief of Staff John Kelly, whose relationship with Trump has been strained in recent weeks, is taking the lion's share of the blame, as I reported yesterday. NPR has confirmed Sorensen's departure, which was first reported by the Washington Post.

He only stepped down from his post Wednesday after the accusations became public. He said the Trump White House, in particular, might be going through the clearance process slowly because those working there have not previously been in government and their extensive foreign and business ties take additional time to explore.

Indeed, he never did receive full clearance and remained in the White House as the president's right-hand man on a temporary permit dating back to his first day on the job. "And we hope he has a wonderful career and he will have a great career ahead of him".

"I don't think those things are mutually exclusive".

The White House claims that the backlog of interim security clearances is a procedural effect of the review process carried out by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and White House Office of Security, which can take time to complete. He, too, denied the allegations.

And many, including the president himself, have turned their ire on Kelly for vouching for Porter's character and falsely asserting that he had moved aggressively to oust him once his misdeeds were discovered.

White House counsel would be notified of a possible suitability issue - but it is unclear what or how much they would be told. And the president has the authority to waive a security clearance.

In a statement White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read to reporters on Wednesday, Porter called his ex-wives' claims "outrageous" and "simply false". "Domestic violence is abhorrent and has no place in our society".

What the president is trying to say is that there were very fine people on both sides of that vase that went into Rob Porter's ex-wife's face.

Trump's statement has sparked a sharp rebuke from Democrats like Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez, who slammed the White House's "culture of misogyny".

Shah said Thursday that Hicks later "recused" herself from some aspects of the matter, but it was unclear from what. Meanwhile, questions were swirling about how long his White House colleagues had known about the alleged abuse.

Only later did the chief of staff, who had argued for Porter to keep his post, release a second statement in which he said he supported Porter's resignation.

Within minutes of the report that Hicks had angered Trump, the President addressed reporters at the White House: He wanted to make clear that he wished his now former aide the best.

A White House official told BuzzFeed News that, unlike Porter, Sorensen's position did not require a security clearance.
