House to probe handling of Porter abuse allegations

Added on 14 February 2018 - 17:19 'Viewed 2 views times.

The Republican chair of the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday said the panel has launched an investigation into the Trump administration ’s handling of the domestic abuse allegations that forced White House aide Rob Porter to resign last week.

“We are directing inquiries to people that we think have access to information we don ’t have,” Rep. Trey Gowdy said on CNN ’s “New Day.” “You can call it official. You can call it unofficial. Those words don ’t mean anything to me. What means something to me is I ’m going to direct questions to the FBI that I expect them to answer.”

The South Carolina Republican said he was “troubled by almost every aspect” of Porter ’s tenure at the White House.

“How do you have any job if you have credible allegations of domestic abuse? Again, I am biased toward the victim,” he​ said.

He sent a letter to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly seeking information on “what derogatory information was made available to the White House on Porter, when, and to whom.”

“The committee is investigating the policies and procedures by which interim security clearances are investigated and adjudicated within the executive branch, and the extent to which any security clearance issued to Porter comported with those policies and process,” Gowdy wrote.

He gave Kelly two weeks to respond.

​Porter, the White House staff secretary and a close aide to Chief of Staff John Kelly, resigned last Wednesday after his two ex-wives accused him of physical and emotional abuse.​

​But the White House got caught in a firestorm of controversy over when it became aware of the allegations against Porter that came up during an FBI background check.

More questions were raised on Tuesday when FBI Director Christopher Wray laid out the timeline of when the bureau informed the White House about a background check on Porter for a security clearance.

​He said it was finished in July, updated in November and finalized in January – a timeline that conflicts with the White House ’s version of events.

​Team Trump said senior officials didn ’t become aware of the allegations against Porter, which he denied, until last Tuesday. ​

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the White House ’s personnel security office was still investigating the claims against Porter when he resigned.

“The White House personnel security office, staffed by career officials, received information last year in what they considered to be the final background investigation report in November,” Sanders said. “But they had not made a final recommendation for adjudication to the White House because the process was still ongoing when Rob Porter resigned.”

O​n Monday, Sanders said the investigation into Porter was being handled by the law enforcement and intelligence community.​
