John Kelly Denied Reports He Offered To Resign Amid Scrutiny

"This is a White House that had Steve Bannon there, who was also accused of assaulting his wife in the past".

The announcement came as part of a slew of promotions announced by the White House Wednesday evening.

"Before we were contacted by the media, we learned last night that there were allegations".

Corbett said she divulged her disturbing abuse claims to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents last October, as part of his background check process. There was no strong statement from Trump condemning domestic violence.

"I stand by my previous comments of the Rob Porter that I have come to know since becoming Chief of Staff, and believe every individual deserves the right to defend their reputation", Kelly said in a statement.

Remember that in the course of the 2016 campaign, Trump faced accusations from more than a dozen women that he has sexually abused or acted inappropriately with them.

Trump then defended Porter against the accusations, which include punching and choking his first wife Colbie Holderness and dragging his second wife Jen Willoughby out of the shower to scream at her.

Speaking in the Oval Office on Friday, Mr Trump said: "We found out about it recently and I was surprised by it but we certainly wish him well and it's a tough time for him".

Prior to joining the Trump administration, Mr Sorensen was a senior adviser to the ME governor, Paul LePage.

His comments sparked criticism from Democrats, with former Vice-President Joe Biden saying Trump had downplayed the allegations against Porter. "That's like saying: 'That ax murderer over there - he's a great painter!'" Biden said at a public event.

"He told the staff he took immediate and direct action" within 40 minutes of learning that abuse allegation from Porter's ex-wives were credible, one of the officials told The Washington Post.

Shah said Hicks, the White House communications director who has been with Porter, "did recuse herself from some matters" concerning the White House's response to Porter's exit. He reportedly actually had a hand in elevating the aide's standing by giving several opportunities to move up the ladder all while being aware of his past. But he didn't offer much clarity about the status of the background check clearance process that was still taking place more than a year into Porter's White House tenure.

The episode has raised questions about who in the White House knew of the issue, and whether presidential aides have been properly vetted.

Sorensen alleged that Corbett punched him multiple times and once grabbed the steering wheel while he was driving on a highway.
