Gen. Kelly reportedly told USA president Donald Trump that he's willing to quit over his botched handling of the domestic violence allegations.

Some commentators objected to his reference to due process, for example pointing to his promotion of a conspiracy theory about former President Barack Obama's nationality.

There are now calls for Chief of Staff John Kelly, who allegedly knew about Porter's problems, to be investigated as well.

White House Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short told Chuck Todd on NBC's Meet the Press that Kelly is doing an "outstanding job" and isn't going anywhere.

"I stand by my previous comments of the Rob Porter that I have come to know since becoming Chief of Staff, and believe every individual deserves the right to defend their reputation".

White House officials have come under scrutiny for not taking action sooner.

Mr Trump had earlier defended former aide Mr Porter, wishing him well in his future endeavours without any mention of the two ex-wives who have accused Porter of physical and emotional abuse.

Porter has denied the allegations against him saying, in a statement that, "These outrageous allegations are simply false". Did he tell Trump and Kelly to say incredibly sympathetic things about Porter and praise him to high heaven while ignoring the victims? No.
