According to Republicans, everybody knew about Weinstein and that makes the Democrats such horrible people. Well, Trump's Admin. knew about Porter for months and did nothing until the MSM broke the story. I wonder how the Republicans will spin this one:
A) blame Obama
B) blame Hillary
C) blame DNC
D) scream fake news
Senior Trump staffers knew about allegations of abuse against Rob Porter
Senior members of President Donald Trump’s administration knew for months that there was a personal issue haunting White House staff secretary Rob Porter, multiple sources told ABC News — raising questions among staffers about why he was allowed to continue in such a prominent role in the West Wing.
Porter, a top White House aide who has served since the start of the administration, resigned abruptly Wednesday in the wake of multiple allegations of domestic abuse by his two ex-wives, a story first reported by The Daily Mail and confirmed by ABC News.
While senior White House staff were aware for months of the domestic abuse allegations by Porter’s ex-wives, they were not aware of the full extent of those allegations, senior administration officials told ABC News.
Even as news of the scandal broke, White House officials initially defended Porter, with Chief of Staff John Kelly calling him a “man of true integrity and honor.”
On Thursday, Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah sought to clear up some outstanding questions about Porter’s security clearance, saying that he was operating under an interim clearance — and while he was never granted a permanent clearance, he was never actually denied a clearance.
Shah also said that Porter is no longer working at the White House and that his last day was Wednesday. Porter came to the White House earlier in the day to clear out his personal items, Shah said.
The president - Shah said - did not know that Porter was operating under a temporary clearance during his time at the White House and said the president was "saddened" by the news and for all the individuals involved.
That account of Porter's final hours at the White House differs from the one given just one day earlier when, following his resignation, and as pictures of Porter’s first wife with a black eye circulated online, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that Porter was not forced out and his departure would not be immediate.
