A White House official initially denied Scaramucci was blacklisted but later confirmed the reports.
One source with knowledge of the situation told CNN that people inside the White House were stunned by Kelly's reflections on the Porter saga, stating flatly that the chief of staff was not telling the truth. "He conducted himself as the ultimate gentleman".
"At that point in time, I thought the statement was accurate as it represented my relationship", Kelly said.
FBI Director Christopher Wray told the Senate Intelligence Committee last month that a partial background check on Porter was submitted to the White House in March 2017, and the completed report was released in July - months after Porter's two ex-wives told the FBI that he was a wife beater.

There was a "disconnect" at the White House, Kelly said. Kelly said he provided a statement of support for Porter after he heard only the first accusation.
"The man we all knew, it was an absolute shock", Kelly said.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters about 1:30 p.m. February 7 that Trump and Kelly retained "full confidence and trust" in Porter.
"I have absolutely nothing to even consider resigning over", he said Friday. Kelly approached Porter with the new claims and Porter immediately resigned, while still denying the veracity of the allegations, Kelly said.
"I should have collected everyone that works here", Kelly said when asked about the fuzziness in the hours after the first report of abuse.
Kelly was also central to the drama over Kushner's security clearance, which was downgraded from "top secret" to "secret" since the president's son-in-law had never passed the FBI's background check.
Kelly was correct in that the photos of Porter's first wife Colbie Holderness' black eye did not surface until late evening on February 6, after Porter had already privately resigned and after Kelly had released a statement of support for the former aide.

For instance, it was later confirmed that Colbie Holderness, who was his first wife had spoken with an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent where she provided the agent with some pictures that depicted her with a black eye.
