  • Peoples lives are being shattered by mere allegation

Vice President Mike Pence, who is attending the Olympics in South Korea, tried to distance himself from the issue, but also stressed in an NBC interview that "there is no tolerance in this White House , no place in America for domestic abuse".

Conway's comments stand in stark contrast to remarks from President Donald Trump, who tweeted Saturday: "Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation". The president - who has also been buffeted by claims of sexual misconduct - asked: "Is there no such thing as due process?"

Mr Sorensen has been accused by his former wife of being violent and emotionally abusive, while Mr Porter faces allegations of domestic abuse involving two ex-wives. "He said, 'Tell Jake I have full faith in Chief of Staff John Kelly and that I am not actively searching for replacements.' He said, 'I saw that all over the news today - I have faith in him, ' and he does". "In this case, the president has denied any of these allegations".

The emerging timeline illustrates the degree to which Porter, a clean-cut and ambitious former Rhodes scholar and Harvard Law School-educated lawyer, concealed troublesome episodes from his past that would normally be considered disqualifying for a senior White House aide.

Porter's ex-wives detailed the allegations to the Federal Bureau of Investigation over the course of a routine background check, they told CNN.

Trump said he was saddened by the charges but pointed out that Porter has denied the accusations.

Russian aircraft crashes after takeoff from Moscow
The plane carried 65 passengers and 6 crew members, Saratov said on its website, expressing condolences to their relatives. A Russian plane with 71 people on board crashed in the Moscow region Sunday and prosecutors said there were no survivors.

The president has also supported others who have faced abuse allegations, including Alabama Republican Roy Moore, who ran unsuccessfully for the US Senate. "He talks about how "Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation" but says nothing about the WOMEN victims".

Those efforts appear to have succeeded for months, at least in part because of the willingness of a virtually all-male staff in the top echelons of the West Wing to believe a talented male colleague over women they had never met.

But there was no sign that a move was imminent, according to the people with knowledge of the conversations.

Oxfam denies 'Haiti prostitutes cover-up' after quake disaster
She said: "We are now engaged with the charity regarding its approach to safeguarding following more recent allegations". A statement from Oxfam to the paper said: 'Oxfam treats any allegation of misconduct extremely seriously.

More importantly, though, the fact that this leaked out so quickly suggests Kelly has lost the confidence of his staff. Most West Wing offices remained dark. Conway stressed that Porter "is no longer the staff secretary".

But on Wednesday afternoon, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, and other aides had maintained to reporters that the White House fully backed Porter, who they said was leaving of his own accord. Mulvaney is reportedly a likely candidate to become the next chief of staff if Kelly leaves the White House, but Mulvaney said Sunday that the rumors are "much ado about nothing".

"You falsely alleged rape by the #CentralParkFive even AFTER they were exonerated, but said nothing about due process for 5 black boys", Cornell William Brooks, a former president of the NAACP, said in a tweet.

Escambia's Jacob Copeland signs with Florida
She then proceeded to grab her things from the table and storm off from the makeshift podium and away from her son. Copeland's mother eventually returned to her son to give him a hug and help him sign his letter of intent.

Deputy White House spokesman Raj Shah said the White House only learned late Thursday about allegations against Sorensen, the speechwriter.
