https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/07/...esigns-abuse-white-house-staff-secretary.html Worst of all the White House has known that Porter was an abuser for months. He never got a security clearance because he's a cowardly wife-beater. Porter was Kelly's right hand and in charge of managing paper flow to president all the while only having an interim security clearance. There's some quality operational security - putting a compromised person in charge of the most sensitive documents. I can understand why Trump doesn't care - he has a long history of abuse and he has bragged about sexually assaulting women. You can't expect decency from a slime ball like that. But Kelly surprised and disappointed me. I thought he was supposed to have some integrity. But covering for the weasel right up until the time that the pictures came out makes Kelly complicit.
