Rob Porter has been a low-profile but senior member of the West Wing staff since Mr Trump's inauguration, but the White House confirmed he is leaving his position after two ex-wives alleged he had physically and emotionally assaulted them.
Jennifer Willoughbywho is Porter's second wife, recounted the abuse to Daily Mail earlier this week.
DailyMail.com quoted Colbie Holderness as saying that Porter choked and punched her during their marriage. Holderness provided photos of her injuries to media. The aide's application for a permanent clearance had been held up while the FBI investigated the abuse allegation. Kelly defended those remarks.
At first, Kelly praised Porter, hailing him as a "trusted professional" and a friend. "I care about him and want what's best for him, but that doesn't necessarily mean him keeping his job, because he needs to face these underlying issues". Porter has denied the claims.
Shah, trying to clean up the mess Thursday during his first turn at the briefing podium, would not confirm if Kelly knew about the allegations before this week and, if so, for how long.
The ex-wife of a senior White House official whoresigned amid allegations of domestic violence said, "If he hasn't already been abusive with Hope [Hicks], he will". He also told CNN that he was shocked to hear about the domestic abuse allegations again Porter.
Taken together, "all the grown-ups in the room protected, privileged, and covered for Rob Porter despite everything they knew about his pattern of abuse, because his career was important to them", says Slate's Dahlia Lithwick.
Willoughby said Porter asked her to say she had taken some "liberties with that therapeutic post", but, she said, "when I thought about it, I didn't. The things I said were factual statements", she added. The official disputed the assertion that Kelly knew all of these details for months, though other sources told CNN he was aware.
Toni Van Pelt, head of the feminist group National Organization for Women, put it bluntly.
The timeline is further exposing Kelly to outrage over his continued defense of Porter: On Tuesday, after the Daily Mail published a story about the accusations, the chief of staff called him a "man of integrity".
"Rob Porter has been effective in his role as staff secretary". "I've lost count as to how many Trump appointees have been sidelined due to their past views or conduct".
