Democrat: I would fire White House chief of staff for keeping Rob Porter

Democratic Rep. Don Beyer (Va.) on Wednesday suggested he would fire White House chief of staff John Kelly for keeping staff secretary Rob Porter as a White House aide despite knowing about allegations of abuse against him.

“If I found out my Chief of Staff was aware of convincing allegations that a subordinate engaged in repeated domestic abuse, and acted to shield them or keep them on my team, I would fire my Chief of Staff,” Beyer tweeted. “John Kelly’s judgment is appalling.”
