Following his departure on Friday as White House speechwriter, David Sorensen denied what he called "baseless and malicious claims" that he abused his ex-wife Jessica Corbett, The Hill reported Saturday.

"I want to be as unequivocal as possible: I have never committed violence of any kind against any woman in my entire life," he said in a statement released on Scribd.

"My accuser can produce no authentic evidence, no legal record, and no witness to support her baseless and malicious claims of domestic violence on my part," he continued.

Sorensen also alleged that Corbett had abused him, stating he was the "victim of repeated physical violence during our marriage, not her."

Sorensen was the second White House staffer to resign this week amid accusations of domestic violence by former wives. On Wednesday, White House staff secretary Rob Porter resigned after two ex-wives accused him of abusing them.

Sorensen resigned Friday following a report in The Washington Post where Corbett accused him of repeatedly abusing her during their turbulent 2½-year marriage.

Sorensen's lengthy statement said Corbett "accused me of the very thing of which she is guilty and of which I am a victim has unfortunately come as no surprise to me, my family, friends, colleagues, and other mutual friends and acquaintances.

"I would like to thank everyone who knows both me and my accuser well for their virtually unanimous confidence in my innocence," he wrote.

Sorensen also said he had "spoken with private counsel and am pursuing legal options to address her defamation. The true victim of domestic violence here has become a victim of today's frightening new world of trial by media."
