Lives being 'destroyed' by mere allegations

Former White House staff secretary Rob Porter resigned on Wednesday after his two ex-wives accused him of physically and emotionally abusing them in marriage.

Porter's abrupt departure raised questions about how long it took Trump's team to act on the accusations.

Senior Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway pushed back against the notion that President Donald Trump doesn't support women, saying he "shows great compassion" for women, and that she "frankly wouldn't work" in his administration if he did not. Mulvaney is reportedly a likely candidate to become the next chief of staff if Kelly leaves the White House, but Mulvaney said Sunday that the rumors are "much ado about nothing".

"That dynamic leaves many simply unwilling to consider the possibility that he has engaged in acts of violence, and when people aren't willing to imagine that, the easiest thing to do is disbelieve the woman making these allegations", Martin said.

Two West Wing advisers and a third person painted a picture of a White House staff rived and confused, with fingers pointed in all directions and the president privately expressing dissatisfaction with Kelly.

He did a very good job in the White House.

In the case of Sorensen, his former wife, Jessica Corbett, told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents conducting a background check on her husband that he had run over her foot while driving a auto and extinguished a cigarette on her hand during a turbulent 2 1/2-year marriage.

Porter's first wife said he kicked her and posted an image of herself with a black eye, which she says she received from Porter punching her.

Apple AirPod Allegedly Explodes, Apple Investigating
A spokesperson from Apple has told the news station that it is investigating the incident to find out what exactly happened. As per some reports from WFLA Apple's wireless Air-pods burst open when the user was in mid of a workout session.

In a bid to quash media speculation about Kelly's possible resignation, White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah said Kelly had not been terminated, and is still chief of staff, CBS News reported on Friday. You think that maybe someone would have mentioned it to me. And, for that matter, there are still multiple allegations against the president himself - as Sen.

Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation.

Trump, who was recorded on tape prior to his presidency boasting about sexually assaulting women, has denied allegations of sexual misconduct from more than a dozen women, and said he was the victim of a "smear campaign".

Many White House senior staff members remained stunned by the accusations against Porter, a well-liked and seemingly mild-mannered graduate of Harvard and Oxford.

Porter's departure, along with Kelly under fire, could deprive the West Wing of some of its steadier hands and anxious some staffers that the sense of order that appeared to have been installed in recent months could evaporate.

Sorensen has denied the allegations.

The infighting unfolded amid signs of a brewing shake-up in the West Wing.

Kelly began telling people at the White House on Thursday that he had learned the details of Porter's situation only "40 minutes before he threw him out" two days earlier, before pictures of Porter's bruised ex-wife began circulating. "He has said this in the past about incidents that relate to him as well".
