CNN reported on Saturday that Mulvaney is a leading contender to eventually replace Kelly.
In a detailed statement, Sorensen claimed the opposite was true, that he was the victim of abuse. "He is a friend, a confidant and a trusted professional". "But when Donald Trump repeated twice that Rob declared his innocence, I was floored", Willoughby wrote in an essay published in Time. There's no tolerance in this white house, no place in America for domestic abuse. Numerous news reportshad said that Kelly offered to quit or was ready to do so Friday, but the chief of staff had denied in a separate NBC interview Friday that he had ever offered his resignation.
According to an extensive report published by The Intercept, Porter had beaten his ex-wives, demonstrating a recurring pattern of behavior that did not prevent the Federal Bureau of Investigation from granting him security clearance when he joined the White House, where he became "a powerful figure" and a wall for leaks, according to the analysis of Politico. "That Colbie Holderness is a liar", Willoughby continued.
A close ally to the President tells CBS News he was blindsided by the Porter allegations and called him a quote "sick puppy".
CBS News has learned Porter informed Kelly back in November about the accusations from his ex-wives. But Kelly took no action against Porter.
Before turning to the media, the two women reportedly relayed their stories to the FBI during Porter's background investigation. "John Kelly is doing an outstanding job".
But the White House is trying to quash speculation about the prospect of a resignation from Kelly.
The Washington Post first reported that Porter himself told White House Counsel Donald McGahn a year ago that allegations about him might surface. Shah also said Kelly was not terminated, and is still chief of staff.

Mark Meadows, the House Freedom Caucus chairman who has risen in prominence of late, is also a name in the mix.
When photo evidence of one of Porter's ex-wives with a bruised eye came out Mulvaney said that the staff secretary was gone "almost immediately".
"No one who has beaten women should be in a position of public trust in the White House", she said. "He worked very hard".
"I can't say I was surprised". "But we absolutely wish him well". Obviously, tough time for him.
The president added: "We hope he has a wonderful career. And I think that is very serious for the United States government". "If Kellyanne Conway had come to the president and said something, we'd be more inclined to believe that person than the person that we don't know". "I think what you saw happen this week was completely reasonable and normal". He said very strongly yesterday that he's innocent.
