How to use porter in a sentence?

  1. Rob Porter:

    Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters. Rob Porter, meanwhile, pushed back strongly on the allegations in the press. These outrageous allegations are simply false. I took the photos given to the media nearly 15 years ago and the reality behind them is nowhere close to what is being described. I have been transparent and truthful about these vile claims, but I will not further engage publicly with a coordinated smear campaign, my commitment to public service speaks for itself. I have always put duty to country first and treated others with respect. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have served in the Trump Administration and will seek to ensure a smooth transition when I leave White House.
