Trump frustrated with Hicks' role in Porter scandal

But right now, Porter's story is key, and not because it's in any way unique for a Trump appointee to lose his or her job.

Senior White House staff, including Mr Kelly, are understood to have known for several months that Mr Porter faced allegations that he had mistreated his wives, and he had encountered trouble in gaining security clearance.

Porter's first wife, Colbie Holderness, and his second, Jennifer Willoughby, told CNN they were contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation past year while Porter was applying for a security clearance to work at the White House.

After Kelly took over as chief of staff in late July, he tapped Porter to help him re-organize the presidential office.

"When McGahn informed Kelly this fall about the reason for the security clearance holdup, he agreed that Porter should remain and said he was surprised to learn that the 40-year-old had ex-wives". Lewis later noted that conservatives had hoped Kelly would bring two changes to the White House.

Porter's first wife, Colbie Holderness, told the Daily Mail on Wednesday that he punched her in the face on a trip to Italy in the early 2000s. "He really wanted to know, 'what are you going to tell them?' and I told him, 'I'm going to tell them the truth".

"These outrageous allegations are simply false", he said in his statement.

Kelly's most recent letter also included resources for anyone who might be involved themselves with domestic abuse. Yet Porter had sat in on meetings of the National Security Council where top-secret matters were discussed, according to three people familiar with the situation.

"White House chief of staff John Kelly must resign", said Van Pelt.

Porter was a top aide to Trump, traveling on Air Force One with the president and frequently advising him in the White House.
