John Kelly: 'I have absolutely nothing to even consider resigning over'

In some instances, Kelly even directly contradicted some of the White House's public statements delivered last month.

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is reportedly banned from his old - if brief - stomping grounds.

President Donald Trump praised Porter in the days following the revelations and pointed to his claims of innocence.

Additional reporting from Newsy affiliate CNN.

He said Porter had denied the allegations, which Porter allegedly did by telling a group of journalists that his ex-wife had injured her eye in a fall.

Kelly told journalists that he had his "eyes opened" after joining the White House in July past year, after he noticed the manner in which people were treating documents and the number of staff who had access to secrets.

The timestamp on that February 7 statement, however, directly contradicts what the chief of staff said Friday.

Mr Scaramucci called for Kelly's resignation last month after the disclosures that Mr Porter kept his job with access to top secret information despite a background investigation that revealed allegations of domestic abuse by two of Mr Porter's ex-wives.

Pentagon Will Not Confirm Russian Stealth Fighters Deployed to Syria
Central Command. "In the skies over Syria , it's really just been a treasure trove for [the Russians] to see how we operate", Lt. VeraLinn "Dash" Jamieson told congressional staffers and reporters during an Air Force Association briefing in Washington , D.C.

"I should have collected everyone that works here", Kelly said when asked about the fuzziness in the hours after the first report of abuse.

He also said that Mr. Not a press report but inquiry about a second wife had made accusations and included physical abuse and um, and uh, talked to Rob and he resigned. "There is no place for domestic violence in our society", Kelly said over 24 hours after the first allegation.

"You have no idea how many people from the White House have texted me this morning saying thank you for saying that", Mr Scaramucci said. Hicks announced Wednesday that she will be leaving the administration. "That's the good thing about being chief of staff in a White House that is in such disarray, historically, that you can just wait for the next storm to come on". Porter's initial offer remains unclear.

The news website Axios reported that Kelly pressed Porter to stay on in his role.

"At that point in time, I thought the statement was accurate as it represented my relationship", Kelly said. "He changed the statement after realizing it was 'physical abuse.' That is insulting to anyone suffering in an abusive situation now". "By December, January, they still had not finished evaluating, the security office, and then 6 February happened and he resigned".

The issue of clearances would ultimately engulf the White House, leading to-according to other sources-Jared Kushner having his clearance downgraded. Everywhere you look inside this White House, top officials are fighting, fomenting, feuding, or fleeing.

Kelly also provided reporters with a more fulsome time line to the Porter scandal. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has repeatedly told reporters she does not discuss the individual security clearances of White House officials. They sent it back to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation sent back the answer to those questions in late November.
