Only the best people folks. Believe me. Rob Porter, White House Aide, Resigns After Accusations of Abuse As the White House staff secretary, Rob Porter is not a public figure, but he is responsible for paper flow to the president, a job of crucial importance in this White House. He frequently travels with President Trump on Air Force One, and he helped write Mr. Trump’s first State of the Union address last month. But on Wednesday, despite support from John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff, and other West Wing staff aides, Mr. Porter announced his resignation, a day after his two former wives accused him in interviews of physical abuse when they were married to him. According to her complaint, Mr. Porter left only after Ms. Willoughby had asked him to leave several times. He returned minutes later and “punched in the glass on the door,” trying to get into the apartment. He left the property after she read her name and address aloud to a 911 dispatcher. Ms. Holderness, Mr. Porter’s first wife, described their relationship as “verbally, emotionally and physically abusive” in an interview with The Daily Mail. In photographs she gave to The Intercept, Ms. Holderness has a blackened right eye and a swollen cheekbone.
