Mulvaney denies Trump offered him Kelly's job

Second White House official resigns amid abuse allegations Inc. All rights reserved. This material may not be published broadcast rewritten or redistributed

Trump not only accepted Porter's claim of innocence but praised him for doing "a very good job" and offered his wishes for "a wonderful career" ahead.

Judge Jeanine Pirro put her own spin on the recent domestic abuse scandals that are rocking the Trump White House - it's Barack Obama's fault. But Trump advised people to remember that Porter says he's innocent.

But Porter denies all of it.

Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier tweeted that Mr Trump's comments were "offensive".

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

And on Friday, White House speechwriter David Sorensen quit after his ex-wife went public with allegations that included, among other things, that he once ran over her foot with a auto and stubbed out a cigarette on her hand.

Trump is said to be annoyed by the focus on the latest White House turmoil, especially as it comes on the eve of his release of a major infrastructure spending initiative. After Porter's resignation, Kelly said he was "shocked" by the "new allegations", adding there is "no place for domestic violence in our society".

"If he hasn't already been abusive with Hope, he will", Jennie Willoughby told Anderson Cooper on CNN Thursday night.

"You want to stop a four-star general who makes a decision within 40 minutes because you hate Donald Trump?".

Donald Trump signs deal to end second government shutdown
The brief shutdown follows a three-day shutdown last month that came about because of numerous same spending and social issues. Their sweeping tax overhaul bill approved in December will add an estimated $1.5 trillion to the national debt over 10 years.

Porter's resignation was announced Wednesday, just hours after a photograph was published of Holderness with a black eye, allegedly inflicted by Porter. "And literally that was it". Conway stressed that Porter "is no longer the staff secretary". Kelly reportedly knew for months that Porter had not obtained a full security clearance due to the allegations. In addition to Mulvaney, the others are House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Rep. Mark Meadows and CIA Director Mike Pompeo. At the end of the session, according to people with knowledge of his remarks, Kelly volunteered that he had something he wanted to "clarify". Trump is known to frequently poll his advisers about the performance of senior staff and is often reluctant to actually fire aides.

David Sorensen, a speechwriter who worked at the Council on Environmental Quality, resigned after being confronted by White House officials, spokesman Raj Shah said.

"This guy (Porter) is never going to get a national security clearance, and yet every day he is reading our nation's top secrets and could have been blackmailed".

Jennifer Willoughby told NBC Nightly News that during an interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation about her former husband's security clearance, she brought proof of his abuse.

But in private, the president is believed to have issued rare criticism of a woman who by some estimates is the most influential figure in the administration after Trump himself.

"Conway spoke on ABC's "This Week" and CNN's State of the Union", Mulvaney on "Fox News Sunday" and CBS's "Face the Nation", and Short on NBC's "Meet the Press".

The White House said in a statement that it had been made aware of the allegations before The Washington Post reached out regarding the story.

Meanwhile, a number of Democrats denounced Trump's comments about Porter and his lack of empathy for the women who alleged abuse. The president said he had only "recently" learned of the allegations against his former aide and was surprised. "Is there any other crime - and it's a crime -where there would be an explanation that the reason why we shouldn't pay attention to the transgression is because they're good at something?" Kelly has so far taken the brunt of the blame and a source familiar with the matter told Reuters he offered to resign.
