Marie Harf Blasts White House’s Handling of Rob Porter Accusations: ‘This Is an Outrage’ (Fox News)

Fox News contributor Marie Harf said the White House needs to have a "serious discussion" after the resignation of staff secretary Rob Porter, who stepped downafter his two ex-wives came forward with allegations of domestic violence.

On "The Daily Briefing," Harf said the whole situation is an "outrage" and Kelly still has a lot of questions to answer.

She explained that Porter was "credibly accused" of domestic violence by two women and Kelly knew about the allegations for months, yet he kept Porter on in his White House role.

She added that this could be indicative of a bigger problem at the White House and it goes beyond a "public relations" misstep.

"This is a White House that had Steve Bannon there, who was also accused of assaulting his wife in the past. President Trump has been accused of very serious things. So, there needs to be a serious discussion at this White House about how they handle this issue."
