According to the Daily Mail, WH Secretary and Trump confidant Rob Porter has resigned amidst a scandal involving two of his ex-wives who one told the daily mail about their 5 year marriage. The allegations are that Porter:

 

  • Colbie Holderness, 37, a senior analyst for the U.S. government and Porter’s first wife, spoke on the record to DailyMail.com about their five-year marriage
  • The couple met in 2000 at their Mormon church while they were in college
  • He was never physically abusive until our honeymoon and that floored me,’ Holderness told DailyMail.com 
  • ‘He would throw me down on the bed, put his full body weight on top of me, then grind a knee or elbow into my body, expressing rage,’ she claims
  • She says the violence escalated to where Porter was choking her. ‘It was not hard enough for me to pass out but it was scary, humiliating and dehumanizing’
  • On Tuesday night, Porter’s second ex-wife Jennifer Willoughby, also shared the story of her abusive marriage with DailyMail.com
  • She says he dragged her out of the shower and was verbally abusive 
  • Last week DailyMail.com revealed that Porter and Hope Hicks are dating, and were seen kissing in a cab on the way back to her apartment
  • Holderness confirmed that she was interviewed by the FBI about her marriage after Porter was tapped for his current White House position and required a security clearance – which he has not received
  • Porter, 40, is considered one of the most important players in Donald Trump’s daily orbit and helped him write last week’s State of the Union Address
  • He denied the allegations but has now stepped down from his White House role

There are numerous pictures of the women involved, some before and after pictures showing bruises and so forth that are a part of the above article. Of course this is probably no surprise for Trump, he has enough past indiscretions to write several books about. So, another aide bites the dust.
