Kelly reportedly indicated he was willing to step down over his handling of the Porter accusations, but on Friday he denied having ever offered his resignation. “John Kelly knows that he serves at the pleasure of the president,” Short said. “And he will step aside anytime the president doesn’t want him to be there. But John Kelly has not offered his resignation. John Kelly is doing an outstanding job.”
