FBI Director Says Rob Porter's Background Check Was Completed in July

FBI Director Says Rob Porter's Background Check Was Completed in July

Trump tweeted last week that a controversial declassified memo issued by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee "totally vindicates" him in the Russia probe, Wray repeated the FBI judgment that the memo was inaccurate because it left out important facts.

He had been rising in President Donald Trump's inner circle and, according to a source familiar with the situation, had been talking to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly about a promotion.

Mr. Wray also told lawmakers that the bureau delivered its first report on Mr. Porter to the White House in March, months earlier than White House officials said they learned of the problems with his background check.

Willoughby, Porter's second wife, alleged that Porter once dragged her wet and naked out of the shower and was verbally abusive, calling her a f***ing b***h' on their honeymoon.

Porter has denied the abuse allegations, but lawmakers like Republican Lindsey Graham wants more answers from Kelly. The access has to be limited in terms of the kind of information they can - they can be in a position to receive or not receive.

The scandal goes even further, into exactly how the Trump White House, under the direction of Chief of Staff John Kelly, views domestic violence.

Wray also confirmed that the FBI had "completed" Porter's background investigation in July, which did not result in a permanent security clearance.

"It's my job to speak on the behalf of the president".

But seriously, when did the White House know about Rob Porter?

The Porter incident has increased scrutiny on the security clearance issue in the White House. I've got to tell you, we spent the day here working the phones, talking to people in past administrations.

Background investigations are critical because allegations of illegal or illicit activity, such as domestic abuse, can be used by adversaries to blackmail government officials in exchange for classified information.

Porter reportedly confirmed at the meeting with the reporters that he intended to resign. He added that Porter said he was innocent.

"I think how it makes me feel is not as important as the message it sends to others", Holderness told CNN.

Host Steve Doocy said there are rumors of an FBI employee sharing their concern about Porter with the White House and asked Shah if he knew who that person was. Porter was serving on an interim security clearance while the check was pending.

To wit, the Trump White House now claims they were just recently made aware of the allegations against Porter.
