Former FBI agent Gary Aldrich recalled that a Clinton White House staffer with a history of domestic violence never resigned or was fired from his top-level post at the time.

Aldrich, an agent with the bureau during the terms of George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, joined SiriusXM Patriot 125 on The David Webb Show Thursday and told Kerry Picket:

“You know, and as far as this current allegation goes, you, we had one fellow, I’ll never forget him, and in fact it was one of the reasons I decided to write my book was that he was working in the White House, a very sensitive high level position, and his background was that he had several marriages and he put one of his wives right into the hospital with physical abuse.”

He continued, “All of these cases were brought to our attention and were reported dutifully to the Secret Service and White House counsel’s office right away. And that fellow was still working there at the White House. When I retired and left the grounds nothing had been done about him or to him for his conduct of abusing girlfriends and wives going all the way back to the 60’s, actually. No evidence that he’d ever stopped doing it.”

Aldrich would not say who the Clinton staffer in question specifically was, citing privacy issues, but the information discussed comes at a time when two Trump White House staffers resigned following allegations of domestic abuse against their partners. The former FBI agent previously wrote about his experience in the Clinton White House in his 1996 best-selling book, “Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside The Clinton White House”.

President Donald Trump said in a statement Wednesday he is “totally opposed” to domestic violence Wednesday, his last response since former White House aide Rob Porter left his job over the charges 8 days ago.

“I am totally opposed to domestic violence of any kind. Everyone knows that, and it almost wouldn’t even have to be said,” he told reporters.
