WASHINGTON (AP) — A top White House aide is stepping down following allegations of domestic abuse by his two ex-wives.

Staff secretary Rob Porter says in a statement the allegations are “outrageous” and “simply false.” He says photos published were taken nearly 15 years ago and the “reality behind them is nowhere close to what is being described.” Porter adds that he has been transparent and truthful, but will leave the White House after a transition period. 59 more words
