"The President and Chief of Staff (John Kelly) have full confidence in his abilities and his performance", she said.
"He only punched me once in the eye". It was during a vacation in Florence in 2005. "I think he was shocked that he had lost control to that extent".
"The statement was prepared before any accusations were printed but with the understanding that his past marital troubles would be used against him", the aide said. The country needs more honest, principled people like Rob Porter, which is why I hope that this cynical campaign to discredit his character ultimately fails. "I just wanted to once again note a further erosion of standards for what I thought we had agreed was not OK, not acceptable, and not moral".
'It was not hard enough for me to pass out but it was scary, humiliating and dehumanizing, ' she said.
"He worked for me [and] he did a tremendous job", Hatch said. But he will take his place in that White House tomorrow beside John Kelly, working for a president whose first wife once accused him of rape, working for a president who is a self-confessed sexual assaulter who was caught on video bragging about his preferred methods of sexual assault. She said she got a protective order because he punched in the glass on the front door while she was locked inside, per The Intercept.
Both of Porter's ex-wives told CNN that the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed them past year, when Porter was trying to obtain a security clearance, and said they were truthful about their experiences. Willoughby then filed a temporary protective order. Maybe so - if not for two things. She shared copies of her correspondence with the Federal Bureau of Investigation with the Intercept.

Rob has been accused of domestic abuse - which he has denied. Less Infowars, more Wall Street Journal. Under her maiden name, Holderness was featured in a 2001 Rolling Stone article about the school.
In September, a former top Senate aide told Business Insider the photo reminded him of something out of the Quentin Tarantino movie "Reservoir Dogs". Fight what, exactly? Testimony from not one but two exes that he was a thug, replete with photo evidence?
But in a new statement on Wednesday, Hatch said he was "heartbroken" by the allegations against Porter, saying he had been a beloved staff member and trusted adviser. "I am proud to serve alongside him". That's the quote that was circulating online last night at the same time as the pic of Colbie Holderness's blackeneyed eye.
The outlet also reported that Holderness and Willoughby informed the Federal Bureau of Investigation of their allegations during Porter's background check conducted when he joined the White House.
The Daily Mail reported that Mr Porter did not receive security clearance for his White House job after the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed his ex-wives during background checks. Sanders declined to comment on Porter's security clearance. Porter was never granted a full security clearance, CBS reports, but he was given an interim clearance to work in the White House.
A scramble ensued inside the West Wing to defend him when the claims became public this week, the sources said. But shortly after Kelly rallied behind his colleague, Porter's first wife came forward with additional harrowing allegations.
