The White House suffered a major exit today, with staff secretary Rob Porter resigning amid abuse allegations, Axios' Jonathan Swan reported.
Porter and Chief of Staff John Kelly were in charge of reviewing all information before it reached President Trump. Porter had good relationships across the ideological spectrum of the White House.
The claims: Porter's ex-wives alleged in separate interviews with the Daily Mail that he'd been physically and verbally abusive.
What we're hearing:
Worth noting: Both former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and former Labor Secretary nominee Andrew Puzder were accused of assault by their ex-wives. (Puzder's ex-wife later retracted her claim).

Professor Pedro Domingo on whether Artificial Intelligence should be on the same pedestal of human invention and innovation as fire, electricity and the light bulb:
"It could be. If AI really leads to the birth of intelligences greater than humans', it will arguably be the most important event in the history of life on Earth since, well, humans. But that's a very big if, of course. In the meantime, AI's impact is far smaller than electricity or fire's (and in fact, you could say that AI is part of electricity's impact, since it wouldn't exist without it)."— Pedro Domingo
