Wapo: John Kelly lied about the wife beater Rob Porter situation

Recommended Posts

Kelly offers account of Porter exit that some White House aides consider untrue

Quote

 

White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly on Friday morning instructed senior staff to communicate a version of events about the departure of staff secretary Rob Porter that contradicts the Trump administration’s previous accounts, according to two senior officials.

During a staff meeting, Kelly told those in attendance to say he took action to remove Porter within 40 minutes of learning abuse allegations from two ex-wives were credible, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because discussions in such meetings are supposed to be confidential.

“He told the staff he took immediate and direct action,” one of the officials said, adding that people after the meeting expressed disbelief with one another and felt his latest account was not true.

That version of events contradicts both the public record and accounts from numerous other White House officials in recent days as the Porter drama unfolded. Kelly — who first learned of the domestic violence allegations against Porter months ago — issued a glowing statement of support for Porter’s personal character after the allegations first surfaced publicly Tuesday and privately urged him to remain on the job until the next day when his resignation was announced.

At Friday’s meeting, Kelly also told subordinates to convey to other White House aides he cares about domestic violence, according to the officials.

The Russians have proven they're pretty good at meddling in elections.

They've also proven not be to be very good at hiring people to fill the offices when they win the election.

matter of perspective.  I'd say the Russians have done a fantastic job with their hires.  I mean,  almost the entire government at the top is lead by people either vastly unqualified or whose intent is to wreck it.  

In terms of the top positions.  Mattis and Haley are about the only two that stand out as decent hires of the major slots.

Another day another embarrassment. And of course Kelly is supposed to be "THE ADULT IN THE ROOM".

 

The silver-lining with this administration is they are all generally terrible people trying to backstab one another, so we get WH sources leaking confidential info all the time like this.

The dnc nor the rnc has to take vote one to pick its party nominee. 

 

We can talk a lot about fixing political parties but that is separate from this real voter suppression issue

There is always voter suppression. But it’s not really candidate or even party based.

I saw someone speaking about this last night.  That there would have to have been a specific request from Trump and only Trump to continue in the position with the application file closed and no clearance issued. 

If he was cleared by anyone outside of Trump that is in violation of policy.
