People familiar with the matter said Kelly was aware there were issues in Porter's past impeding his permanent security clearance more than a year into his tenure.

The White House makes the final call on Federal Bureau of Investigation background checks for White House employees like Rob Porter, who resigned Wednesday.

Porter was denied a final security clearance, who at the White House was aware of this information, and how Mr.

Routinely, Trump has accepted claims of innocence from men facing similar allegations, including Fox News head Roger Ailes, anchor Bill O'Reilly and former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who was accused of molesting teenage girls.

Trump said Porter, who resigned when the abuse allegations became public this week, had "worked hard" at the White House and wished him well.

"If you had agreed to any of our previous requests for information on these matters, the White House would have been required to answer key questions about why Mr". Another spoke of emotional abuse and of Porter grabbing her and pulling her from the shower.

Willoughby detailed her relationship with Porter to NBC's Savannah Guthrie, which ranged from the "verbally and emotionally abusive" to the physical.

As Porter's second ex-wife, Jennie Willoughby, illustrated to Anderson Cooper last night, this is more than just another political football for the administration to have a kick at. "The truth must be determined", Shah said.

Kelly tried to push his own timeline in brief comments to The Associated Press and several other news outlets, repeating a narrative he had presented Friday at a senior staff meeting that contradicts accounts provided by multiple White House officials. They're upsetting. And the background check investigates both the allegations and the denials.

Victims also feel less inclined to leave once they're in a long-term, committed relationship, said Cindy Southworth, the executive vice president of National Network to End Domestic Violence.

In a subsequent television interview, Kelly, the former Department of Homeland Security secretary, said the president had "evolved in the way he looks at things" - drawing a rebuke from Trump on Twitter, who said his plan had "never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it".

Holderness provided photos of her injuries to media.

Guthrie then brought up Porter's first ex-wive Colbie Holderness, who accused the former Trump aide of beating her, noting she released an image showing her with a black eye.

Noting that the allegations against Porter are serious and deeply troubling, Shah told reporters that the former White House staffer denied them. Willoughby filed a temporary protective order after the alleged incident.

President Trump was not told of the accusations until this week, two senior officials said, after they were first published by the Daily Mail, and he had grown fond of Porter in his job, which often put him by the president's side. She also said his departure from the White House was not imminent. Shah added that Kelly retained the president's confidence.

Around the spring of 2010, Willoughby said Porter came looking for her at their previously shared home and it appeared that he had punched a glass pane on the front door.
