A second White House official resigned amid abuse allegations from a former wife.

"People's lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation", he wrote. "Some are old and some are new", Trump said. "Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?" he said. "He said very strongly yesterday that he's innocent", he added. "And we hope he has a wonderful career", Mr Trump said.

"Our children must learn a different lesson", she added.

But while McGahn privately informed Porter and encouraged him to consider moving on, according to one of the two people briefed, no action was taken to immediately terminate him. One produced a photo of her black eye and bruised cheek; the other had phoned 911 when he allegedly punched through the glass of her front door (they were separated) in an effort to break into her house.

But Porter denies all of it.

Attorneys who specialize in security clearance said Porter should have disclosed the allegations, including the protective order granted to one woman, when he filed his lengthy national security application. "I took the photos given to the media almost 15 years ago and the reality behind them is nowhere close to what is being described". Shah also repeatedly declined to get into specifics about how much the White House knew past year about the allegations against Porter.

Again, that denial was enough for Trump. "They are going to wait, keep quiet, go look it up and go learn about it", one aide said. "He says it didn't happen", Trump said of Moore, who he wound up endorsing in the state's special election runoff. He said 40 years ago this did not happen.

Hazard refuses to rule out Real Madrid switch
With the visit of PSG in mind, Zidane rested both Gareth Bale and Casemiro to hand starts to Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez. Antoine Griezmann scored after just 40 seconds as Atletico Madrid won 1-0 away to bottom of the table Malaga.

Hicks, perhaps Trump's most trusted aide, had helped craft the response to the scandal as White House communications director, despite being romantically involved with Porter. A source said Trump gave Shah a mild rebuke for the comment, advising him never to apologise. "As you probably know, he says he's innocent". The spokesman said officials confronted Sorenson on Thursday night when they learned of the accusations and that he had denied them. And now, all of a sudden, they're saying these awful things about him. "And certainly he's very sad". Strangers complimented him to me every time we went out. "Hope is smart, very talented and respected by all".

Sorensen denied all the claims in a statement released to media.

At the time, Trump had bought full-page ads that ran in various New York City newspapers that read,"Bring Back The Death Penalty". "I don't do it". Again, Pence highlighted the generosity of the President for allowing him to represent America on the global stage, and reiterated that staffing issues would be dealt with when he returned to the White House. Although he publicly acknowledged Obama's citizenship in September 2016, Trump reportedly continued to privately question it as recently as November 2017.

Apart from disbelief, the White House also has showed ambivalence about allegations of mistreatment of women: Steve Bannon was brought on as Trump's chief strategist despite misdemeanor charges in a 1996 domestic violence case. "I don't think those things are mutually exclusive".

The biggest predator of them all, the man who hired them all as he was also accused by dozens of women of sexual assault, remains in the Oval Office.

Not surprisingly, Trump isn't taking this well at all!

This is not some private citizen we are talking about.
