*Subject:* In-town pool report #2: Statement from Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Rob Porter

The White House passes along this statement from Press Secretary Sarah Sanders:

"Consistent with the practice of past administrations, issues related to an individual's suitability are reviewed through a thorough and lengthy background check process. Background checks involve a complex investigation run by intelligence and law enforcement agencies. As has always been our policy, we do not comment on security clearances. Rob Porter has been effective in his role as Staff Secretary. The President and Chief of Staff have full confidence in his abilities and his performance."
