At a town hall in Franklin, Massachusetts, over the weekend, Warren talked to New England Cable News about the resignation of both Staff Secretary Rob Porter and speechwriter David Sorensen.
“There was an investigation by the FBI into each of the people who have been accused and photographic evidence,” she said. “And if there were more questions to be asked, they should have been asked.”
Porter’s resignation came after photos of one of his ex-wives with bruises on her face were released to the press.
After the photos, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly initially defended Porter before saying he was “shocked by the new allegations.”
But on Saturday, President Donald Trump pushed back against the criticism against his two former staffers, asking why there was no due process.
Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?

Warren said domestic violence should not be tolerated.
“No one who has beaten women should be in a position of public trust in the White House,” she said.
