Jessica Corbett, the ex-wife of recently departed White House speechwriter David Sorensen, alleged her former husband assaulted her in various ways, including throwing her against a wall and burning her with a cigarette.
Sorensen resigned from his post last week following allegations he was violent and emotionally abusive during his marriage to Corbett.
He denied Corbett's claims about their two-and-a-half-year marriage and insisted he was the victim, not her.
Sorensen is the second senior White House official to lose his job this month following accusations of domestic violence.
White House staff secretary Rob Porter departed days before Sorensen.
