    There is a catch 22. There is a legal maxim:

    "When any person is accused of a crime, or charged with any fact, and he does not deny it, in general, the presumption is very strong that the charge is correct."

    Legal Definition of Silence

    Now, let's put some context to this. According to one news account:

    "The only incident, Willoughby said, in which Porter physically abused her was in December of 2010.
    "We were in a fight and I disengaged from the fight after screaming at each other. I took a shower and Rob followed me fairly shortly after and grabbed me from the shower by my shoulders up close to my neck and pulled me out to continue to yell at me," she said. "He immediately saw the look of shock and terror on my face and released me and apologized and attempted to make things right
    ."

    Rob Porter's ex-wives detail abuse allegations - CNNPolitics

    So, this physical episode begins as a mutual fight AND nobody is publishing Rob Porter's side of this issue. Had they been drinking? Who started this squabble? We don't really know.

    And now Porter remains silent as he's already lost his job and the media has tried, convicted, and sentenced him for a single act that clearly has many unanswered questions - AND a Rob Porter who was just as surprised by the fight as anyone else. It was investigated by police; Porter was not arrested. Still there will be that segment of society that will string the man up by the balls with only a partial amount of "evidence" being used to draw their conclusions.

    Doesn't work for this case, not with all the FBI had on this abuser, which was shown to the WH. Get his sorry ass gone!!

    Seems to me that the FBI investigation relies on the testimony of one person per alleged event with the one I cited telling a very different story than what we're supposed to believe.

    Well, the Fibbies did have their version of an "investigation" not an indictment, not an arrest, no real proof of a crime. But, they did find people willing to say bad things about Rob Porter.

    What would be telling is examining how their lives turned out after Porter became successful.

    What's funny is that drumpf has been demanding an end to due process since the start of his fiasco and before. He still does it at every one of his kkk rallies.

    And the stupid crown applauds.

    Why is that?

    I agree. So much evidence/proof and yet drumpf ignored it until he was caught. And then, of course, he lied. SSDD
