'How do you have any job if you have credible allegations of domestic abuse?' Gowdy asked.
A major congressional committee on Tuesday launched an investigation into how the White House handled allegations of domestic abuse against former aide Rob Porter, its Republican chairman, Trey Gowdy, told CNN on Wednesday.
Porter, who had worked at the White House with a temporary security clearance, resigned after news media reports said he had physically abused two ex-wives.
Conway, in a weekend interview on CNN, said she had no reason to disbelieve accounts by Holderness and another ex-wife that Porter had abused them.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, pressed by reporters at Tuesday's briefing about Wray's latest account of the timelinne, explained that the White House personnel security office got information a year ago for what they considered the final background investigation report.
USA airstrike killed 'dozens' of Russian contractors in Syria
A USA official put the death toll at 100, with 200 to 300 injured, but was unable to say how many were Russian. It remains unknown who was paying the Russian fighters , whether it was Russia itself, Syria , or Iran.
Porter has denied the allegations. The initial report in the Daily Mail included a photograph of one of the women with a black eye. Much of that is because of the White House's handling of it.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Wednesday the revelations were a sign of a "breakdown in the system".
Wray says the Federal Bureau of Investigation provided information to the White House on Porter in November, "then earlier this month we received some additional information and we passed that on as well".
The scrutiny has put particular pressure on White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who defended Porter when the allegations first emerged. An update to Ivanka Trump's financial disclosure report reveals that she and her husband, Jared Kushner, have taken on millions of dollars in additional debt over the past year, Politico reported Tuesday.
Kelly has struggled to explain why a close Trump aide with that background could have had the clearance to view top secret materials.
Tech basketball projected as a third seed
In addition to the Top 16 seeds being revealed, CBS Sports' Jerry Palm projected the remainder of the brackets. The NCAA Selection Committee made the announcement Sunday morning in its second preview show in as many years.
Coats said, "We have a broken system and I think everybody's come to agree with that now".
The scandal has already called into question the judgment of senior members of the White House staff.
Coast said the government needs to "basically start with a clean sheet", using new technologies to weed out those who shouldn't be in government, but in a way that "doesn't leave us with hundreds of thousands waiting to be looked at and certified".
When asked if Kelly could have been more transparent or truthful, [another White House] official wrote: "In this White House, it's simply not in our DNA".
