Amid the tumult surrounding staff secretary Rob Porter's allegations of his abusing two former wives, the Trump administration made clear that White House counsel Don McGahn — responsible for Porter's vetting — was staying.

Newsmax asked the White House on Monday the job status of the president’s top legal counsel. “I think the same as it was two weeks ago, two months ago, a year ago,” press secretary Sarah Sanders said. “He’s the head of the White House counsel, and I have no indication to see differently.”

Earlier in the press briefing, Jon Decker of Fox Radio asked Sanders whether McGahn had learned “at any time before last Tuesday, when this story was broken by the Daily Mail, that there was any allegation of any sort leveled by any person against Rob Porter?"

“I can’t get into the specifics,” replied Sanders. “I can tell you that . . . the process for the background was ongoing, and the White House had not received any specific papers regarding the completion of that background check.”
