Former White House aide Rob Porter's two ex-wives, who accuse him of domestic abuse, both said Tuesday the White House has not reached out to them since their stories were made public.
Colbie Holderness and Jennie Willoughby told CNN they were "not surprised" that they have not heard from anyone at the White House since their allegations against their ex-husband became public.
"I think how it makes me feel is not as important as the message it sends to others," Holderness told CNN.
"Reaching out to Jennie and me would, in some small way, provide support for their assertion that that they take domestic violence seriously."
On Monday, the White House struggled to explain its handling of the abuse allegations, stumbling particularly on questions related to when top-ranking officials were made aware of them.
Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused - life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 10, 2018
But Sanders would not say why the president has not said those words himself.
