The White House was already under scrutiny this week over its handling of Porter's departure.
The White House is scrambling to contain the fallout from the spouse abuse allegations - especially for Chief of Staff John Kelly, who along with other senior officials had known about the accusations against Porter for months, according to some news reports. "And we hope he has a wonderful career", Trump said in his first comments on the allegations against the onetime rising West Wing star. "He says it didn't happen".
It is unclear how events related to Porter unfolded - or didn't unfold - or who knew what and when.
Hope Hicks at the White House. Nearly every time he has voiced his opinions - on the Civil War, on treatment of women, on the "dreamers" - he has sounded like a callous fool.
The official said staffers felt misled by how Porter played down the allegations, both to Kelly and McGahn.
"Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Rob Porter "did a great job while he was at the White House", Trump said, adding Porter said he was innocent. "And literally that was it".
He made no mention of the women who allegedly endured abuse from Porter which they claim ranged from choking to punching in the face to shaking violently. The Dems had all three branches of government back in 2008-2011, and they decided not to do anything about DACA.
Sorensen told the Post in a text message that he resigned because he "didn't want the White House to have to deal with this distraction". Casino mogul Steve Wynn, a prominent Republican donor and Trump friend, is among the latest powerful men to lose their jobs over such allegations.
Trump said Friday that he was "surprised" by the claims against Porter, but he praised the former top staffer for his time working in the administration.
Kelly said he found out only Tuesday night that the accusations against Porter "were true". But their public support for Porter quickly evaporated once a photo surfaced showing one of his ex-wives with a black eye.
At issue is whether Hicks, who also served as communications director during the campaign, relaxed her judgment owing to her relationship with Porter. One source said staffers came away from the meeting with the impression that Kelly was trying to change the narrative after a damaging week.
In his statement, Sorensen that "I was the victim of repeated physical violence during our marriage, not her". After Ailes was ousted as chief executive of Fox News in 2016, Trump also questioned the motives of some of Ailes' accusers.
Trump and others who complain about the (grossly exaggerated) death of due process are far more interested in making sure that enough cover is extended to the men they seek to defend than they are in making sure that the legal system provides fair outcomes for all those who depend on it.
