'Top White House Officials Were Willing to Overlook' Alleged Abuse
Kelly, a former U.S.Â Marine Corps general and former Homeland SecurityÂ Secretary, has repeatedly lied about how the White House has handled the information that Porter was crediblyÂ accused by both of his ex-wives of physical and verbal domestic abuse.
But Kelly apparently did not care.
"Rob Porter was involved in serious discussions to be promoted when he abruptly resigned from the White House last week amid allegations that he abused his two ex-wives," CNN reports.
Porter was "being considered for the deputy chief of staff position," CNN adds,Â which would report directly to Kelly.
CNN adds that "Porter had been actively lobbying to take on new policy portfolios outside the traditional scope of the staff secretary."
Earlier Tuesday FBI Director Christopher Wray destroyed the White House's claims that they learned of Porter's alleged domestic abuse just before the Daily Mail article was published one week ago.
Each of those details reveal a coverup and lies by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and deputy press secretary Raj Shah.
