(CNN  )Rob Porter, a top White House aide with regular access to President Donald Trump abruptly resigned on Wednesday amid abuse allegations from two ex-wives, who each detailed to CNN what they said were years of consistent abuse from Porter, including incidents of physical violence. 
Nice that makes him a Trump kind of man.  

Colbie Holderness and Jennifer Willoughby, both said their ex-husband’s consistent abuse was the reason for their respective divorces.   White House chief of staff John Kelly called Porter "a man of true integrity and honor and I can't say enough good things about him."  That was yesterday and today is today and in the WhiteHouse Kelly is another Trump and will re-create the truth.

"He is a friend, a confidante and a trusted professional. I am proud to serve alongside him," Kelly said in a statement. Thats was yesterday.  Now a third woman pops up. In the photo to the right Kelly should not be allowed scissors, he’d  cut Robs balls off for making such  fool of him.

Porter and Kelly clearly saw eye-to-eye on how to run the White House. But knives starting to come out for Kelly, there's a chance this growing scandal could knock out both the forces many credit with bringing a sense of stability to the administration.

Kelly's "kind of on the hook now already given the controversies from this week," "I think the story is bad, a lot of his enemies are using it against him to try to get rid of him."

In other words, the people "who feel boxed out, feel like they aren't getting the access they want and see him as a problem in that respect,"  "And it sounds like maybe Ivanka is now involved in that because it looks like her role has now been narrowed a bit."

Vanity Fair reported Thursday that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are discussing possible replacements at chief of staff. 

Trump, the publication reported, was "f------ pissed" that he was not aware of the severity of the allegations against Porter until Ivanka showed him the Daily Mail photos.

Lewandowski reportedly has already called Trump to fire Kelly in the aftermath of the Porter ordeal.  Meanwhile, a source told PBS that White House staffers are surprised and dismayed that Kelly strongly defended Porter initially, before the photos emerged publicly.


Both Holderness and Willoughby were contacted by a woman claiming to be Porter's girlfriend in 2016. In Facebook and text messages reviewed by CNN, the woman, described "repeated abuse" from Porter and sought help from the ex-wives on how to leave him.

"I work in politics, and despite Rob's repeated abuse, some of which I think many know about, he continues to rise and I'm afraid to go against him," the woman wrote to Holderness in December 2016. "I'm sorry to bother you. I wanted to reach out and hear your story if you are willing to share -- as well as how you broke out of it with him and mostly, how you recovered."

"Rob was abusive, degrading, a liar and a cheater and during the course of my relationship with him, I found out that he was to others, too," the woman wrote to Willoughby in February 2016. “  am just searching for someone who might be able to relate to the hell I have gone through."  The woman currently works in the federal government in a White House role.

Both Holderness and Willoughby said they were contacted by the FBI last year and interviewed regarding Porter's security clearance. Both women told CNN that they were honest with the FBI about their respective troubled marriages.

Porter has been dating White House communications director Hope Hicks, one of the most influential figures in the West Wing, several people familiar with their relationship say.   

As staff secretary, Porter's responsibility was mainly in the flow of paper that crossed Trump's desk, including the wave of executive orders and actions that Trump inked during the first months of his tenure. A lawyer, Porter also participated in the process of legal vetting the myriad documents that require the President’s signature.  

Porter began traveling more frequently in Trump's entourage, including during last month's trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos. White House staff secretaries play an important role in the West Wing, though the position has varied in stature. Under President Barack Obama, the role was downgraded to a "deputy assistant to the president" title. Trump restored the job as an “assistant to the president."

We are awaiting more information and for general Kelly the WhiteHouse Chief of Staff to change his underwear and get down to some truth.  The immediate press conference was a disaster, here are some parts of it by Raj Shah

  •  Shah said that Porter had been “terminated" on Wednesday.  But that's not at all what happened! Porter offered his resignation -- and it was accepted.   LIARS and LYING
  • Shah tried to argue that because Porter hadn’t allegedly hit any of the women during his time in the White House, it was more an issue for the background check people to deal with.  BULLSHIT.
    President Donald Trump famously promised he would bring the "best" people with him to Washington. Being the best people doesn’t start when you formally begin working in the White House.    QUIT HIRING FRIENDS AND DOUCHBAG’s
  • It is the job of the White House to ensure that the people working in the building -- especially one with such direct access to the President -- meet a certain standard of conduct. And have met a certain standard of conduct.  FULL BLOWN BULLSHIT
  • In explaining the radical difference between Kelly’s hugely supportive statement of Porter on Tuesday night and his less supportive one on Wednesday, Shah said the chief of staff became "fully" aware of the allegations.  But according to CNN’s reporting, Kelly had known for months about the allegations. 
  • Shah painted Kelly as totally unaware that the FBI had been told by both of Porter's ex-wives that he had abused them.  THEN HE’S AN IDIOT  and should go back tot he army, someone else's.
  • Shah said that communications director Hope Hicks, who has been dating Porter, had “  recused” herself from some conversations about the situation. Back to the vibrator....
  • But, we know (again thanks to CNN reporting)  that romance was in the air,  Hicks was one of a handful of people involved in the crafting of Kelly’s first and hugely fake supportive statement on Porter.     HICKS IS ANOTHER BULLSHITER and LIAR.
  • This line: "I think you have got to take allegations seriously, you have got to take denials seriously."  NOT WHEN THREE WOMEN AND PICTURES SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.

The White House was already under scrutiny this week over its handling of Porter’s departure. West Wing staff -- including chief of staff John Kelly -- initially defended Porter despite the allegations of abuse by both of his ex-wives. 

Photos of one of Porter's ex-wives with a black eye surfaced publicly, which eventually led to the White House expressing concern about the allegations. Porter has denied the allegations.

On Thursday evening, Kelly sent an email to White House staff about domestic violence, writing, "While we are all processing the shocking and troubling allegations made against a former White House staffer, I want you to know that we all take matters of domestic violence seriously. Domestic violence is abhorrent and has no place in our society."

Senior aides knew for months about the allegations levied against Porter, even as his stock in the West Wing continued to rise, multiple sources have told CNN. CNN previously reported that a source familiar with the matter said Porter's ex-girlfriend called White House counsel Donald McGahn in recent weeks to inform him of abuse allegations, and added that whatever McGahn did with the information clearly wasn't enough.

“I think its fair to say we all could have done better dealing with this over the last few days," Shah told reporters Thursday at the daily White House briefing.  Trump said Friday that he was "surprised" by the claims against Porter, but he praised the former top staffer for his time working in the administration. 

"I found out about it recently and I was surprised by it," Trump said. "We certainly wish him well. It's obviously a very tough time for him. He did a very good job while he was in the White House.”   
Bottom line is:  TRUMPS not saying anything bad about  these folks who could open a can or worms for him, or open further all the cans open now.
