Jennie Willoughby, one of the ex-wives of former White House staff secretary Rob Porter, said that if Porter hasn’t already been abusive in his relationship with White House communications director Hope Hicks, he will be soon.
Reports emerged this week where Willoughby and another ex-wife of Porter accused him of being abusive in their marriages. Willoughby, who was married to Porter in 2009, told CNN anchor Anderson Cooper on Thursday that she doesn’t believe Porter has changed when asked if she thought Porter was different in his relationship with Hicks . . .
“It worries me for a lot of reasons, I mean it definitely worries me because if I’m being frank with you, if he hasn’t already been abusive with Hope, he will,” Willoughby said. “Particularly now that he’s under a lot of stress and scrutiny. That’s when the behaviors come out. And if he hasn’t already, he will.” . . .

The second report featured a photo of his first wife with a black eye. (Read more from “Former Trump Aide’s Ex-Wife Warns: If He Hasn’t Been Abusive with Hope Hicks Yet, He Will Be Soon” HERE)
