WH Official Resigns After Security Clearance Denied

WH Official Resigns After Security Clearance Denied

The president's remarks came more than a week after the allegations against former White House staff secretary Rob Porter first became public.

Shortly after Gowdy's announcement, POLITICO reported that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was pushing for Kelly to face reporters in a press conference and that the president supported her. The GOP, she said, "is going to start losing women". "But it's all or nothing, and when it comes to this president, it's all bashing or nothing". "I think a lot of us are scratching our heads". "Everything is Trump bashing, even if they choose to side with the brutal North Korean regime".

Amid pressure, Trump finally came out against domestic abuse during a brief Oval Office press gaggle on Wednesday. So now you hear it.

Time and time again over the past week, the White House has advanced a position on the Porter story that it has since had to walk back.

One White House official told the Washington Post that the chief of staff is a "big fat liar" and his handling of the situation a "dereliction of duty". This is why "Porter did the right thing by resigning" and why "General Kelly had no tolerance" for what he was accused of.

Kushner's still hasn't received full security clearance, and NBC is reporting he is among 130 White House staffers who only have interim clearances.

What's different with the Trump administration, compared to past administrations in their first term, is the number of high-ranking Trump White House officials and advisors who have yet to be cleared for full security clearances and who are operating like they have them.

"I am totally opposed to domestic violence of any kind everyone knows that and it nearly wouldn't even have to be said", he said in the Oval Office, reports CNN. "And it nearly wouldn't even have to be said".

In an interview with Fox News Radio on Wednesday, Andy Card, who served as chief of staff to President George W. Bush, defended Trump's chief of staff John Kelly, but he, too, acknowledged some loopholes in the White House's response to questions about security clearances.

Vega then reported that "strangely enough this is the second alert that this White House has had to send out today", referring to the shooting earlier in the day when a vehicle attempted to enter the National Security Agency's headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland.

Once White House officials learned of the Porter allegations, "within 24 hours his resignation had been accepted and announced", which is why the White House security office informed high-level White House officials about the allegations in November and Porter resigned in February. Porter was denied a final security clearance, who at the White House was aware of this information, and how Mr. "I still feel that way", Pence said.

Vice President Mike Pence: "John Kelly has done a remarkable job as chief of staff for president of the United States".
