Trump aide Rob Porter resigns amid abuse allegations

White House staff secretary Rob Porter, a top aide to President Donald Trump, has resigned, the White House confirmed, following allegations of abuse from his two ex-wives.
Porter denied the allegations in a statement issued in the wake of his resignation.
“These outrageous allegations are simply false,” he said in his statement. “I have been transparent and truthful about these vile claims, but I will not further engage publicly with a coordinated smear campaign.”
Porter resigned over the objections of White House chief of staff John Kelly and others, a White House official said.
