Many of today's questions are likely to center around Rob Porter, the senior Trump administration aide who will resign at the end of the day due to multipleallegations of abuse and domestic violence. Kelly asked Hagin a few weeks ago to dig deeper into why there had been delays in background checks of certain key staff, including Porter.
Several aides and White House advisers expressed disgust and said Kelly had failed the president if he knew about Porter's history with his ex-wives and didn't inform Trump.
"He became fully aware about these allegations yesterday", said Shah.
Even those who originally praised Trump's selection of Kelly as chief of staff now have second thoughts.
As of 9 a.m. Thursday morning, Fox had gone nearly 15 hours since discussing Porter - the last on-air mention of Porter had been shortly after 6 p.m. on Wednesday on the program hosted by Bret Baier, according to the transcript searches. In the story's wake, Porter submitted, and Kelly had accepted, his resignation on Wednesday.
After those images were published, Porter announced his resignation on Wednesday.
Shah said that Trump did not know of the status of Porter's security clearance. He has also stated that "there is no place for domestic violence in our society".
In response, Kelly put out a statement, saying: "Porter is a man of true integrity and honor and I can't say enough good things about him". As the allegations resurfaced Wednesday, Porter resigned.
Prior to joining the White House staff, Porter worked for other GOP leaders behind-the-scenes. "The president and chief of staff have full confidence in his abilities and his performance", said press secretary Sarah Sanders.
On Tueday, Kelly issued a statement of personal support for Porter.
Hicks and Lewandowski were reportedly seen having a public screaming match in Manhattan in May 2016, an incident that landed them in the New York Post - a rare bit of unfavorable press for Hicks. "But that doesn't change how serious and disturbing these allegations are".
Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, Porter went to Harvard University with Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and a senior advisor to Trump.
Shah explained to reporters Thursday that Porter went through a common "background investigation process" that all potential US government officials go through. "You've got to take the denials seriously", Shah said. The allegations by both ex-wives were told to the FBI during an investigation into Porter for his security clearance. She took out a restraining order against him after he allegedly violated a separation agreement and punched through glass in the door of their home, cutting himself.
Holderness told Fox News on Thursday that she got the black eye during a hotel-room fight when she and Porter were on vacation in Florence, Italy. Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, gave President Donald Trump a "mulligan" on his alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels. "Long hours and Fake reporting makes your job more hard", Trump wrote on Twitter.
Kelly apparently did not listen to Portman's two ex-wives who tell harrowing stories about being victims of extreme physical and emotional abuse.
Keilar pointed to CNN's and Politico's reporting indicating that Kelly had known about the abuse for some time.
