After early positive views that Kelly brought order to the Trump White House, there have been a series of departures, including Communications Director Hope Hicks' Wednesday announcement that she is resigning and the departure of Staff Secretary Rob Porter amid allegations of domestic violence.
"Based on Federal Bureau of Investigation testimony, WH Chief of Staff John Kelly nearly certainly knew about credible allegations of domestic abuse against Rob Porter at least 6 months ago - then recently forced others to lie about that timeline", Scaramucci tweeted on February 13.
As he entered the event Thursday, Kelly was upbeat, telling CNN that things at the White House were "pretty good", in his opinion.
On Friday, Kelly did for the first time concede that the timeline provided by Wray had been accurate.
"I wish I had worked harder in the six months I had the job to. not only protect the men and women that get beat up so badly every day but to really advertise in a much more effective way how good you are", Kelly said. Instead, he says, Porter was apparently still going about his job.

Former Donald Trump aide Anthony Scaramucci tore into White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, accusing him of blocking his access to the president at the White House and Davos and driving away Trump's most-important advisers at a critical moment when the White House is in chaos.
Kelly said during the briefing that he released those statements based on his personal interactions with Porter in the White House and blamed a mix up over the timing of when Porter would be leaving his post. The story was that a wife had claimed that she had had some level of emotional abuse.
"My only comment is the sadness I felt when Kelly defended his first statement of defense of Rob saying they thought it was 'only emotional abuse, '" Willoughby said. "Emotional and psychological abuse is abuse!"
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also said at the time at a White House briefing: "I can tell you that Rob has been effective in his role as staff secretary, and the President and chief of staff have had full confidence and trust in his abilities and his performance".
