The FBI had photos of Rob Porter's ex-wife Colbie Holderness' bruised face "days after President Donald Trump's inauguration last year" according to a CNN report. That puts White House counsel Don McGahn in the spotlight as, per CNN, clearance lawyers in the counsel's office would almost certainly be made aware of such evidence.

The details: Porter "approached McGahn" early on in his time at the White House, "and told [McGahn] that disparaging information from his ex-wives...could be revealed" in the background check process, CNN reports. Their conversation reportedly did not touch on domestic violence. It isn't clear if the FBI sent the photo to the White House, but the agency "would have at least provided a synopsis of what they portray," per CNN.

The former Louisville police officer charged with three counts of wanton endangerment in connection with the raid that led to the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor, an unarmed Black woman, pleaded "not guilty" on Monday, the Courier Journal reports.

The big picture: The announcement of charges against Brett Hankison, who was fired from the department in June, set off nationwide protests last week. None of the officers involved in the raid were indicted on homicide or manslaughter charges related to Taylor's death.

SurveyMonkey poll: Trump's Ohio bet

Data: SurveyMonkey survey of 3,092 Ohio voters, Sept. 1-25, 2020; Note: COVID-19 was a write-in option; Chart: Axios Visuals

President Trump leads Joe Biden 51%-47% among likely Ohio voters overall — but he holds a whopping 74%-24% lead with those who say a flagging economy and job concerns are their top issue, according to new SurveyMonkey-Tableau data for Axios.

Why it matters: Ohioans are more worried about their jobs than the coronavirus — and that's President Trump's best chance to cling to a narrow lead in this state he won handily in 2016.
