House Republicans Open Investigation Into White House Handling Of Porter Scandal

14 February 2018

Gowdy asked CNN's Alisyn Camerota.

Gowdy indicated he's specifically interested in learning more about what information the Federal Bureau of Investigation shared with the White House and when top administration officials were looped in. Such a breakdown, Ryan said, needs to be "addressed".

Rob Porter, who as staff secretary handled the president's paper flow, resigned last week.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, pressed by reporters at Tuesday's briefing about Wray's latest account of the timelinne, explained that the White House personnel security office got information a year ago for what they considered the final background investigation report.

After fierce criticism from some former allies, Schulz ditched plans to take the post of foreign minister. The SPD was at a record low of 16.5 percent, barely ahead of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD).

Wray's testimony on Tuesday marked the latest development in a scandal that has called into question the judgment of senior members of the White House staff, put new stress on the administration's already strained credibility with the public, and drawn accusations of tone-deaf handling of abuse allegations.

In a letter sent Wednesday to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Gowdy said the panel is investigating the interim security clearance process and "the extent to which any security clearance issued to Porter comported with those policies and processes". Since the scandal broke on February 6, the White House has changed its story multiple times about Porter's dismissal.

The former White House aide has been accused of spousal abuse by two of his ex-wives.

On immigration, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana, said that leadership is whipping for a bill, backed by conservatives, and proposed by Reps. Fox News is told, however, that Kelly is not being pushed out. Kushner's attorney, Abbe Lowell, said in a statement that "there are a dozen or more people at Mr. Kushner's level" who are working without full security clearances. "Again, I am biased toward the victim", he said.

"We are directing inquiries to people that we think have access to information we don't have".

'You can call it official, you can call it unofficial, ' Gowdy said. An update to Ivanka Trump's financial disclosure report reveals that she and her husband, Jared Kushner, have taken on millions of dollars in additional debt over the past year, Politico reported Tuesday.

In an op-ed in the Washington Post, Porter's ex-wife Colbie Holderness said Conway's comment "implies that those who have been in abusive relationships are not strong". Joni Ernst told CNN about a report that the White House arranged for Porter to defend himself privately to reporters after the allegations surfaced.
