Pence Defends John Kelly Amid Porter Fallout: I Look Forward to Working With Him for ‘Many Months’

During an interview today with Axios’ Mike Allen, Vice President Mike Pence reiterated his belief that the White House could’ve handled the Rob Porter situation better.

He said the administration has “no tolerance for domestic violence” but added, “Any more counsel I have on this I’ll share with the President.”

Allen asked him if he’s confident that Kelly has been fully honest and transparent.

“There are very few Americans or American families that have served this nation more honorably or sacrificed more for this country than the family of General John Kelly,” the VP said.

“John Kelly has done a remarkable job as Chief of Staff for President of the United States,” he continued, “and I look forward to continuing to working with him for many, many months to come.”
