Sorensena, a White House staffer who worked under senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, turned in his resignation as the the Washington Post was working on a story about abuse claims by his ex-wife, Jessica Corbett.

Corbett told the post that she told the FBI about the abuse claims last fall as the agency was conducting a background check of Sorensen.
