In an look on CBS News, Trump adviser Mick Mulvaney tried to clarify away the Porter scandal, however he slipped when he stated, “The president had someone working for him who came to him and said, ‘Look, I’ve been accused of this, I’ve been falsely accused of this. Please don’t believe it. It’s not true.’”
He then went on, attempting to say that Trump didn’t know concerning the photographs of Porter’s ex-spouse’s battered face till later, however the injury was already achieved by that time.
