He expressed his concern for the people whose lives are "being shattered and destroyed" by a "mere allegation". The words "mere allegation" and "falsely accused" meant to imply that I am a liar.
"The president and the chief of staff [John Kelly] are much more likely to believe people, not based on their gender, but based on their relationship with him", Mulvaney explained.
Rob Porter and David Sorenson resigned from the administration over allegations they abused their wives. McGahn told Kelly, as CBS News' Arden Farhi has reported, that Porter's ex-wives were saying things about Porter but Porter was denying the claims.

Trump's staff deny he is planning to oust White House chief of staff John Kelly.
There is also the question of when Kelly knew of the allegations against Porter.
According to an extensive report published by The Intercept, Porter had beaten his ex-wives, demonstrating a recurring pattern of behavior that did not prevent the Federal Bureau of Investigation from granting him security clearance when he joined the White House, where he became "a powerful figure" and a wall for leaks, according to the analysis of Politico.

When the reporter pressed further, asking about Porter's security clearance, Sanders stepped back and hit the press for being deeply hypocritical. Donald Trump has been accused of rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, and domestic violence, but none of this bothered Mike Pence, so he should be prepared to be laughed out of the room by a vast majority of Americans.
