FBI says it warned White House about Rob Porter in March '17

WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI first flagged "derogatory information" about President Donald Trump's aide Rob Porter to White House counsel Don McGahn in March 2017.

That's according to a new timeline provided by the FBI to Congress and publicly released Thursday.

The timeline raises new questions about the White House's handing of spousal abuse allegations against the former staff secretary and who knew what and when.

Porter resigned in February after the allegations became public. The administration has offered several contradictory accounts of their response.

The situation prompted changes in how the White House handles security clearances and a number of staffers' clearances were downgraded.

The FBI letter was provided to the House Oversight Committee earlier this month.
