Porter was up for promotion despite abuse allegations

(CNN)Rob Porter was involved in serious discussions to be promoted when he abruptly resigned from the White House last week amid allegations that he abused his two ex-wives, multiple sources familiar with the matter tell CNN.

His anticipated elevation further highlights how top White House officials were willing to overlook indications from the FBI that there were potential abuse allegations in his background in exchange for professional competence in a tumultuous West Wing. Porter had been actively lobbying to take on new policy portfolios outside the traditional scope of the staff secretary, one person familiar with the matter said, which included speechwriting duties and a role in planning policy rollouts. Neither of those tasks is traditionally carried out by the staff secretary.

One of the areas Porter was set to delve further into was trade policy, according to the person. Porter was a regular attendee at a weekly trade meeting among top-level administration officials.

He was also being considered for the deputy chief of staff position, another source familiar with the situation said. CNN reported Friday that Jim Carroll, who served as the deputy chief of staff for less than three months, was stepping down to helm the Office of National Drug Control Policy.

1. Indications of repugs not giving shit about abuse of women.

As long as the minions are willing to fuck the poor, working class, women and brown/black people the lawbreaking is totally fine with this criminal cabal.

8. If I were to fail a back ground check and have had lied on my form I would be charged

for falsifying a federal back ground check paperwork, and would be indicted..................even if this sexual predator has the right to hand out a clearance, there is still a thing called "DUE PROCESS" and if you fail the "DUE PROCESS" you will not be permanently hired, no matter what this criminal enterprise does our tries to say, old Sanders is at the podium now trying , I say that lightly to deflect the bullshit and the serious of this issue and others, I hate propagandists that try to shield criminals and traitors...................


I think it now time to file paperwork under the FOIA to see how many other assholes are breaking the law............and could compromise national security...............

Hey Paul "ayn rand" Ryan and Mitch McConnell, this should be laid at your traitorous feet also...........you have failed in your job description.......................to hold public hearings on this issue, ever fucking hear of blackmail...............look at the former NSA general Flynn, he could have been blackmailed,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and now this "guy" Porter..................





November 2018 cannot get here fast enough

10. ...and that promotion was WELL DESERVED!

Do you KNOW how hard it is to hand papers to the President and then pick them up again? You have a 50/50 chance of putting the papers down the wrong way!
