Curbelo Wants Answers From WH on Allegations Against Porter

(CNN's "New Day")

Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla, is calling for White House officials to provide more details of how they handled domestic violence allegations against Rob Porter, who resigned as staff secretary.

Curbelo's comments came during a Monday interview on CNN's "New Day."

"I think it's important for them to be transparent and explicit about who knew what when, and why it took so long to act," Curbelo said. "I think we need further explanation."

Porter had stepped down after two former wives alleged domestic abuse to The Daily Mail. One of his ex-wives was photographed with a black eye.

Trump later wished Porter well and said: "He says he's innocent. I think you have to remember that."

Curbelo took exception to Trump's comments.

"I think first, especially after looking at those pictures we have to really express the concern and the pain that we feel for those women," he said.

"Now, I understand the president's sentiment, too. I don't think we need to rush to convict people, to condemn people, and yes everyone should have the ability to defend themselves. But that doesn't mean we ignore the pain and the suffering of the victims of domestic abuse, which is very real and very serious."
