Peoples lives are being shattered by mere allegation

Rob Porter and White House chief of staff John Kelly

His comments come after White House staff secretary Rob Porter resigned following reports that he abused his ex-wives.

With it being reported that Kelly knew for months about the domestic abuse allegations made against Porter, the White House has maintained that Kelly was only fully made aware of the accusations last week and quickly moved to push Porter out at that time.

As the aftershocks of the accusations against Porter reverberated for a sixth day, Trump stayed out of sight on a rainy Sunday in Washington.

Reeling from the downfall of a senior aide, the White House is on the defensive, attempting to soften President Donald Trump's comments about the mistreatment of women while rallying around the embattled chief of staff.

"A lot of us could have done better", Shah told reporters in a rare show of contrition from the Trump White House .

Lashing out hard at the Prime Minister, Gandhi said, "Modi ji stop giving speeches and start working, because you don't have much time".

"That dynamic leaves many simply unwilling to consider the possibility that he has engaged in acts of violence, and when people aren't willing to imagine that, the easiest thing to do is disbelieve the woman making these allegations", Martin said.

Conversations have been going on last week among White House staffers as to what a "post-Kelly world looks like", a source familiar with these discussions said, with Mulvaney seen as a leading contender to eventually replace Kelly.

"We understand there are also serious questions regarding when the White House first learned of these allegations and Mr". The president's classic response to the allegations was to ask, how does anyone know the bruises weren't there before?

In the case of Sorensen, his former wife, Jessica Corbett, told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents conducting a background check on her husband that he had run over her foot while driving a vehicle and extinguished a cigarette on her hand during a turbulent 2 1/2-year marriage. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) that said, "If [Trump] wants due process for the over dozen sexual assault allegations against him, let's have Congressional hearings tomorrow". "In this case, the president has denied any of these allegations".

He said that's when two or three small explosions went off in the wreckage and people weren't sure what to do. He earlier told United States media that the local terrain had hampered rescue efforts overnight.

"He says he's innocent, and I think you have to remember that. He talks about how "Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation" but says nothing about the WOMEN victims".

Until hours before the Harvard graduate left his post, the White House was praising him as an upstanding and integral member of staff.

Porter's ex-wives detailed the allegations to the Federal Bureau of Investigation over the course of a routine background check, they told CNN. Senior White House officials, including Kelly, Joe Hagin, deputy chief of staff, and McGahn received word from the bureau that the allegations were credible and that Porter was not likely to pass his background check.

"But the irony for Kelly may be that the credibility that makes him a singular asset in this White House may have been irreparably damaged by his work in it".

The infighting unfolded amid signs of a brewing shake-up in the West Wing.

In June 2016, Trump faced widespread backlash for alleging that US District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who was then overseeing a lawsuit against Trump University, had "an inherent conflict of interest" due to his Mexican heritage and calling for his recusal in the case.
