Speaker Ryan: White House should condemn domestic violence

Porter's resignation has been scrutinized as details of his background check being delivered to the White House have come into question. The FBI is not responsible for issuing security clearances - that's done through the White House.

Kelly is "a big fat liar", said one White House official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share a candid opinion.

Federal Bureau of Investigation director Christopher Wray told Congress on Tuesday that a background check of Porter was completed months before he resigned. Porter has denied the allegations. You can call it unofficial. Those words don't mean anything to me.

Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., sent letters to White House Chief of Staff John Kellyand FBI Director Christopher Wray, demanding answers about who in the White House knew of the accusations by two ex-wives.

"Do you think the White House should publicly condemn domestic violence", MSNBC's Kasie Hunt asked Ryan.

"Absolutely", Ryan said. "Clearly, we should all be condemning domestic violence". Fox News is told, however, that Kelly is not being pushed out.

The White House has asserted that Porter's background investigation was ongoing and that officials first learned the extent of accusations against him only last week, just before Porter abruptly resigned.

"The FBI's July report required significant additional investigatory field work before [the] personnel security office could begin to evaluate the information for adjudication". "The FBI portion was closed".

Gowdy added: "The chronology is not favorable for the White House". "There is a breakdown in the vetting system and that breakdown needs to be addressed".

The Associated Press reports that staff members still without clearance include senior adviser Jared Kushner.
