  • Jennifer Willoughby, an ex-wife of the former White House staff secretary Rob Porter, described what she said was "systematic" abuse she suffered during their marriage.
  • She said she lived in a "low-grade, constant terror" with Porter.
  • Willoughby's story gained worldwide attention along with that of Porter's first wife, Colbie Holderness, who said Porter gave her a black eye.
  • Porter was fired this week.


Jennifer Willoughby, one of the two women who leveled accusations of domestic and emotional abuse against the former White House staff secretary Rob Porter, says she lived in a state of "low-grade, constant terror" with him.

That terror stemmed from "not knowing what I might do to set something off," Willoughby said during a CNN interview that aired Thursday night. She said Porter engaged in a "systematic tearing down" of her character during their marriage.
