Both outlets reported the pair began seeing each other in January, when they were spotted at a D.C. restaurant and at church services together.
Hicks was involved in crafting White House chief of staff John Kelly's response to allegations Porter abused two of his ex-wives, which called Porter "a man of true integrity and honor." She was rebuked for that by President Trump, and Porter resigned the afternoon the statement was released.
Before dating Porter, Hope Hicks reportedly dated Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, although he was still married to his wife at the time. Lewandowski has also been accused of violence against women, having been charged with battery by Florida police for roughly handling a female reporter during a Trump rally in March 2016. Page Six reported Lewandowski and Hicks had a "screaming match" on a New York City street after Lewandowski was fired from the campaign and Hicks chose to stay on.
What is Hope Hicks doing next?
