Trump Speechwriter Resigns Amid Domestic Abuse Allegations, Says HE Was The Victim

Yet another member of Trump’s staff has resigned — and just like Rob Porter, who denies allegations against him from multiple ex-wives and a desperate ex-girlfriend who contacted both ex-wives to beg them for advice on leaving him safely, it involves domestic violence…and he denies it despite his resignation.

David Sorensen, a Trump speechwriter who worked under senior policy adviser and resident Nazi Stephen Miller, resigned abruptly  as the Washington Post was reporting on abuse allegations made by his ex-wife, Jessica Corbett.

Corbett told the FBI last fall that:

  • he ran over her foot with a car
  • he put out a cigarette on her hand
  • he threw her into a wall and grabbed her by her hair on a boat

During part of Corbett’s hellish marriage to Sorenson, he worked as a top policy adviser to Maine Gov. Paul LePage (a man who says our “enemy right now” is “people of color or people of Hispanic origin”).

Corbett says she didn’t report the abuse at the time because of her ex-husband’s relationships to law enforcement. She provided the Post with supporting evidence:

Two friends and associates of Corbett said she confided in them during the marriage that her husband was abusive. Corbett also provided records of text messages and emails in which Sorensen berated her with vulgar language and she discussed the deteriorating marriage with others. She gave The Post a photo of her hand bearing a scar she said was from the cigarette burn.

Sorensen says that he has “never committed violence of any kind against any woman in my entire life” and that he resigned because he  “didn’t want the White House to have to deal with this distraction.”

“It should be able to focus on continuing President Trump’s historic accomplishments for the American People,” he told the Post.

He even went farther than simply denying the allegations — he says that he was the one who abused him.

“In fact, I was the victim of repeated physical violence during our marriage, not her,” he says, adding that he is “considering legal options to address her defamation.” He even provided a photo of himself of what he laughably says are injuries his wife gave him.

“This incident is an opportunity to highlight the grossly underreported and unacknowledged issue of female-on-male domestic violence,” Sorensen actually said. “Like many domestic abusers, she was especially adept at controlling her rage so that no others witnessed her physical attacks.”

Corbett doesn’t deny smacking him when he called her a “vulgar term,” but the rest of Sorenson’s story is complete bullsh*t, she says.

“Everything I told you is 100 percent true and that is why he had to resign today,” she told the Post.

This second resignation comes as the Trump administration scrambles to show that they didn’t turn a blind eye to instances of Rob Porter’s domestic abuse for a full year, only doing something about it after the information became public.
