Two of ex-wives claim he was verbally and physically abusive during their relationships, and have supported their claims with alleged photographic evidence of their injuries.

Porter was reportedly denied a security clearance in the White House due to the accusations.

“Rob (Porter) has been effective in his role as staff secretary and the president and chief of staff have had full confidence and trust in his abilities and his performance,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Despite his resignation, Sanders said Porter’s exit will not happen immediately, and he will stay on to ensure a smooth transition moving forward.

    Why is this on the front page when the FBI Agent, Douglas Cambell, who was gagged by Loretta Lynch was being interviewed behind closed doors in congress when no notes were taken or transcribed on the subject of Clinton’s connection to Uranium One is NOW HAPPENING????

    There was enough evidence to deny him security clearance or at a strong suspicion.

  5. “Verbally abusive”? Doesn’t that go with “divorce”?

      Remember the movie “SURRENDER” with Michael Caine and Sally Fields where the writer after his third divorce arrives at his attorney’s building and is faced with the choice of entering one of two open elevators… one with a beautiful woman… the other with a tough looking black man and his two doberman pincers… and he chooses the latter.

  6. The obvious answer to all of life’s problems is for men and wom..er, women and men, to hate each other, and only communicate in courtrooms. 😀

  7. So men are guilty before the adjudication for DV? Screw, he is INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILT. What part of that doesn’t MSM get?

    • The part where cops showed up in 2010 when his wife called the police and had a black eye because he flew off the handle. That isn’t unproven – it’s why he just resigned. The police report was released late yesterday.

    While traitors are allowed to continue their jobs or those fired collect pensions that they increase significantly while in power or those whose goal to take America down live the high life with secret service and increased retirement on the backs of taxpayers. Yup sounds like DC👍🏻

  9. Is there any wonder why MILLIONS of American men are DUMPING American women and flocking to foreign women? Sadly, myself and millions of other poor saps, got SCREWED and LIED about by American female psycho’s! Now I am married to a beautiful and wonderful Ukrainian lady whom I can love and respect. On the internet you will find many many dating sites to meet foreign women. Look for dating sites for foreign men looking for American women. They dont exist. They would go bankrupt because no one wants American women and no men would use the site. It is well known WORLD WIDE that American women are absolutely the WORST choice and highest risk when looking for a wife. Men, do yourselves a HUGE favor. and save yourselves from many years of domestic HELL, getting belittled, hen pecked, falsely accused of domestic violence, rape or child abuse, paying thousands in child support,lawyers fees and spousal support,loosing your homes and retirement pensions and alienation from your children. AVOID AMERICAN WOMEN LIKE THE EBOLA VIRUS!

    • I don’t know about all that, but can say that I have been married to a Chinese/Taiwanese woman for over 50 years and couldn’t be happier.

      As to the accuracy of this article, I ain’t got a clue.

    • All American | February 8, 2018 at 2:40 am |

      Please don’t categorize American Women however if you are looking for pet try a pet store!

    • Ya good luck with your mail order bride. Us real men do just fine with our beautiful patriotic American women.

    • nfcapitalist | February 8, 2018 at 7:44 am |

      Naaa… just city women dressed and painted like fishing lures… there are good American women but they live in those thirty-one states that got president Trump elected.

      • Exactly. Out here in rural Arizona the women are patriotic, have common sense and love their men. They also want to have children. City chicks suck. Get a country girl, preferably one who grew up on a farm. They are cute and they enjoy being women.

    have a vasectomy , never get married . you will be healthy , wealthy and wise .

    • Scott Henke | February 8, 2018 at 1:08 am |

      No kidding. The best advice my grandfather ever gave me was “don’t get married”, despite he and my grandmother having been so for 50 years.

  11. This article makes me think more deeply about the #metoo movement.

    I was a member of a church that had rules governing men and women being together alone.

    At first I thought these rules were over-the-top. I have come to see the wisdom in having rules governing when men and women meet. Virtually all of the problems between men and women vis. a vis. abuse would be resolved if these simple rules were followed.

    The Rule:
    A man should never be in any place alone with a woman unless she is his wife or child.

    this means that if it is necessary for a man and a woman to meet it should be in the presence of at least one other person

    This rule includes elevators, hallways, and, of course, bathrooms.

    A man should never take a business trip alone with a woman unless accompanied by at least one other person.

    A man and women on a business trip must stay in separate hotels to avoid problems of abuse or problems arising from false accusation.

    I’m going to follow these simple rules from now on.

    • All American | February 8, 2018 at 2:38 am |

      Totally PC.

      • Yes, that is probably so but the rule certainly solves all the problems of abuse and the threat of false accusation.

        • All American | February 8, 2018 at 4:31 am |

          Sad but becoming a truism!
          I believe this is what the left thrives on and yes they have been successful at driving a wedge between men and women in our society.

    Was abuse stated as a grounds for divorce? If not than these accusations are bs.

  13. Tony Anthony | February 7, 2018 at 4:46 pm |

    it’s not enough they got a divorce and he is paying alimony and child support… To be honest I am getting tired of this #metoo campaign, I now see it as a way for women to crush their male counterparts.. How many business men are going to want to go to conferences or business meeting with a women, for fear of allegations of abuse later on.

    • ...remain calm and return fire | February 7, 2018 at 6:25 pm |

      None. And #metoo is backfiring. The old saying “if you seek revenge, first dig two graves” is proving to be true.

    • I kinda wondered why there wasn’t any mistletoe at the office this past Christmas…

    • All American | February 8, 2018 at 2:37 am |

      #metoo latest nudie Sport Illustrated says it all…

    • I follow the rule that I am never alone with a woman without another present. I learned this in a Christian church I attended some years ago. This rule resolves all problems of abuse and false accusation. Simple rule – simple solution to these problems. I suspect this rule will catch on.

      • Yes, that was Billy Graham’s policy. I heard it when I was young and have stuck to it ever since.

    • Hey fella, you got 2 first names :]

    • A lot of mothers, sisters, and wives have chilled on the #MeToo movement. Truly criminal acts deserve exposure, but when the Feminists (who stopped representing the majority of women a long time ago) began to conflate the criminal with trivial the whole thing went off the rails.

    I wonder if either of these women are receiving child support? Talk about cutting your own throat.

  15. Jerry Stoddard | February 7, 2018 at 3:11 pm |

    Does anyone in the federal government not abuse women?

    • Do any American women not falsely accuse men of abuse?

      • You got that right, it is a powerful weapon they wield indiscriminately and one of the only “crimes” where hearsay can get you arrested without real evidence of a crime being committed.
