Yet another Trump White House team member has abruptly resigned amid accusations of abuse of his wife.
David Sorensen, a White House speechwriter, resigned Friday after his former wife told the Washington Post , which was reporting on a story about her claims, details about his violence that she says left her afraid for her life.
The FBI had this information has they conducted the background search on Sorensen, according to his ex-wife Jessica Corbett, who says she spoke with the FBI about Sorensen’s violence last fall.
Corbett told the Post that Sorensen “ran a car over her foot, put out a cigarette on her hand, threw her into a wall and grasped her menacingly by her hair while they were alone on their boat in remote waters off Maine’s coast, an incident she said left her fearing for her life.”
Trump’s turn back the clock on domestic violence administration is coming unglued. Instead of a house of cards, Trump put together a house of predators, and one by one those predators are being exposed and removed from the White House.
The biggest predator of them all, the man who hired them all as he was also accused by dozens of women of sexual assault, remains in the Oval Office.
The United States won’t be a safe place for women until the Predator In Chief has been removed from office.
Update 9:17 PM: David Sorensen’s last name has been corrected from Sorenson to Sorensen.
