White House officials knew about Porter's abuse allegations and scrambled to protect him

Source: CNN

Allegations of domestic abuse levied against top White House staffer Rob Porter by his ex-wives were known among senior aides to President Donald Trump for months, even as his stock in the West Wing continued to rise, multiple sources told CNN on Wednesday.

Porter denied the allegations but resigned on Wednesday.

A scramble ensued inside the West Wing to defend him when the claims became public this week, the sources said. That effort continues even after his resignation.

2. Why am I not surprised?

Because nothing out of this cast of clowns and junior SS troopers surprises me. Rob "Neidermeyer" Porter guilty of domestic abuse....I'm not the least bit surprised.

6. Hicks also dated

Lewendowski. That girl really gets around, doesn't she? Plus she is the one who steams tRump's suit, while he is wearing it. Gives a whole new meaning to "steams". eh? Has Jared, or Beavis and Butthead had their turns yet, I wonder?

9. One thing I deeply believe about the Trump administration: It will get much worse..

This story about "wife abuse" and it is bad, will seem small compared to what is coming. And they tried to protect him...well that could be "worse."

Nevertheless, Mueller will reveal stuff that will be "unbelievable." I haven't got a clue as to what that will be...but this clown crowd thinks it can get away with anything. I think Mueller and team are greatly offended by that kind of thinking..

And in the end .........that crowd will be taught lessons that will end many in jail........that is what I believe.

10. Orin Hatch probably knew first;Porter worked for him w, obviously, denied security clearance

Hatch's willful ignorance needs to be included in the Porter CoverUp investigation.
