    Not all about Hillary, Hillary is simply to show your faux outrage. That's all.

    She has a black eye. How did she get it? Hillary is the worst abuser of women this country has ever seen. Nobody has been more detrimental to woman's ability to seek help from an anusice person. She provided cover for a world of abusers. She gave everybody the playbook, the woman is the devil. How anybody could vote for her I will never understand.

    If you cannot see the difference, that is not my problem. It is always about Hillary when you and others cannot defend the indefensible by this low-life who was elected President.

    You accused Hillary Clinton of abusing women to support my outrage at Porter beating the crap out of 2 women. There is no parallel (and the accusation against Hilary Clinton is complete bullshit).

    I am outraged at the way the Porter incident was handled. Aren't you?

    You will not answer. Just divert to Hillary to avoid another indefensible Trump outrage. Just bring Hillary into it to try to create a sense of relativism.

    Please defend Trump's handling of Porter. Because that is the topic of the thread.

    notably, you did not respond to my off topic comments about the Trump campaign's communications with Kislyak during the convention or the evidence regarding the change in the Rep. platform. That outrages me. So does the meeting in Trump Tower. So does the advance knowledge of the email hack Papadapolous had and the fact that the trump campaign remained silent and then our Great Leader asked Russia to leak more emails.

    This is just another in a long line of outrages.

    I, and others here, will not be diverted.

    believe me, i understand why the posters on the tight do not care. We all do.

    What exactly was indefensible? The guy was fired immediately trump wished him well. What would you have preferred? To do what Hillary did for decades and completely shred the accusers publicly?

    They knew about it going back to his application for a security clearance. Not immediately.

    Who is they? And second, do you think everybody that ever beat somebody up, if guilty, should not be entitled to work?

    Kelly. Trump. When the security clearance was denied, Trump had to give him a special clearance. If a guy beats the crap out of two women, he should not get a security clearance and work in the West Wing/Oval Office.

    Do you know why people like that are denied security clearances? I will see if you can answer that before I give you the answer. It is easy.

    Time is up MDF (mainly since I am going to sleep in a bit). The principle reason for denial of a security clearance is the possibility of blackmail against disclosure of the incidents. You do not want Porter approached with "we know you beat the crap out of your exes, but we will not come forward if you work with us."

    So, to answer your question, a guy like Porter cannot work with classified material or information.

    Another reason is the lack of trustworthiness of such a person.

    You not think somebody accused of a crime should be able to work in the Whitehouse? You really want to go there.

    hard to imagine the White House wasn't completely honest about this. I mean, who would have guessed?

    Everybody knows you can't trust the FBI.

    That looks like it hurt. Did she ever press charges?

    I don't think so. His second wife is the one who got the emergency protective order against him. Unfortunately only 25% of physical assaults against women are reported to police. The rest of the statistics aren't any better either. If you've watched a few episodes of cops, you've probably seen the battered woman "protecting" her husband at some point. It doesn't make sense, but it's very common.

    Based on FBI testimony, WH Chief of Staff John Kelly almost certainly knew about credible allegations of domestic abuse against Rob Porter at least 6 months ago - then recently forced others to lie about that timeline. Inexcusable. Kelly must resign.

    It's obvious they're lying about it, but nothing will come of this.

    They lie so much it's all just noise followed by more noise. The media and most Americans are incapable of following any one set of lies, because of all the ensuing distractions.
