Dozens of President Trump officials lack full security clearance

Dozens of President Trump officials lack full security clearance

It was unclear from the Post report if that was Sorensen's version of what Corbett claimed was him running over her foot.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said the president asked her to make clear that he supports Kelly, whose handling of abuse allegations against White House staff secretary Rob Porter have come under intense scrutiny.

The Post said Sorensen, who reportedly worked closely with senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, vehemently denied the allegations and accused Corbett of abusing him.

Sorenson denied the allegations, instead blaming Corbett for the physical violence.

Sorensen resigned on Friday after his former wife claimed that he was violent and emotionally abusive during their marriage.

On Friday, a second White House staffer, speechwriter David Sorensen, resigned as a result of abuse allegations.

Porter's resignation was announced Wednesday, just hours after a photograph was published of Holderness with a black eye, allegedly inflicted by Porter.

With key midterm elections approaching in November, they would also like to move away from the narrative of a White House in disarray.

After one of those incidents he attempted to leave in his auto "and she ran after him as he was pulling away, injuring herself in the process", the Post said.




Conway made similar statements on CNN's State of the Union with Jake Tapper, saying the president had instructed her to make it clear that Kelly's job is safe. "As you probably know, he says he's innocent, and I think you have to remember that".

But this is not the first time the White House has found itself in the middle of the #MeToo moment.

"Everyone loved him. People commented all the time how lucky I was". Kelly was aware of this order, one senior member of the administration told Politico.

The officials emphasized they did not consider a resignation imminent, and that Kelly - who early in his tenure often used a threat of quitting as a way to temper President Donald Trump's behavior - had made no formal offer.

White House chief of staff John Kelly has so far taken the brunt of the blame.

He insisted to White House officials that he had quickly pushed Porter out once the allegations proved credible, The Washington Post reported. "We immediately confronted the staffer, he denied the allegations and he resigned today", Shah said in a statement. And they came amid rampant White House finger-pointing about who knew what, and when, about the severity of the spousal abuse allegations.

In the wake of the scandal, reports had surfaced over the weekend that Kelly had offered to resign, but the White House chose to keep him on. He said talk of Kelly's departure is "much ado about nothing". Corey Lewandowski, Trump's former campaign manager, has been accused ofsexual assaultand was charged with battery after attacking a female reporter.

"He did a very good job when he was in the White House and we hope he has a wonderful career and hopefully he will have a great career ahead of him", the president said. "Is there any other crime where there could be the explanation the reason why we should not pay attention to the transgression is because they're good at something?"

Porter has denied the accusations against him, as well. Trump's staff secretary called the allegations from his former spouses "outrageous" and "simply false".
