Shah said when the allegations about domestic abuse were made to the FBI, Porter was working at the White House under an interim security clearance while his background check was being completed.
Shah also sought to address news reports that Porter's ex-wives had told the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the alleged abuse months ago as part of a background check on Porter that was being conducted so that he could obtain a security clearance.
His last day at the White House has not yet been set, according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who added that Porter will stay on to ensure a smooth transition to his successor.
"I can't say enough good things about him". Willoughby filed a temporary protective order after the alleged incident. And his chief of staff is no different. He also said Trump was "surprised" by the allegations because "he, like many of us, did not see that in Robert Porter". Lewis later noted that conservatives had hoped Kelly would bring two changes to the White House.
"If you had agreed to any of our previous requests for information on these matters", Cummings noted, the White House would have been required to answer "key questions"-like "how Mr".
"I believe that the people who had the power to blackmail him would be women who had been in personal relationships with him".

German chancellor urges compromise in coalition talks
After weeks of negotiations, Germany's main political parties have finally reached an agreement to govern together. Merkel at first turned to two smaller parties , the Free Democrats and Greens, to form a new government.
Former Trump aide Rob Porter's ex-wife is warning his rumored GF Hope Hicks that he will become abusive to her in the same way he allegedly was during their marriage.
But as CNN reported Thursday, it was widely known by early fall of past year among top aides - Kelly included - that Porter was facing trouble obtaining security clearance and that he had allegedly abused his ex-wives.
Porter, who was arguably White House chief of staff John Kelly's closest aide, cleaned out his desk on Thursday.
Porter, a senior adviser who is in charge of much of the documentation that goes to President Donald Trump for his signature, announced his departure in a statement after his former wives made accusations against him in published reports. He and other Democratic leaders have asked the administration to explain the status of Kushner's clearance given reported omissions on his security clearance questionnaire.
Senior staff members at the White House apply for five-year security clearances, and the process can be lengthy - some current officials are still waiting, aides said.
"It's a very hard call because none of us actually do know what the facts or truth are, and Rob Porter did deny it".
But following Porter's resignation and new reporting on abuse allegations, Hatch issued a new statement Wednesday. One of them, Jennifer Willoughby, posted about it in detail on Instagram in April 2017 and wrote of Porter that "When I tried to get help, I was counseled to consider carefully how what I said might affect his career".
