White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a statement Wednesday in support of newly-resigned presidential aide Rob Porter who left his post amid allegations that he physically assaulted two of his ex-wives.

Sanders’ statement was released after Vanity Fair reported that Kelly went to bat for Porter in spite of the assault allegations against him.
