Trump adviser to leave the White House

Sebastian Gorka, a controversial White House adviser who works on national security issues, is reportedly leaving his role in the White House, according to multiple reports. Before joining the administration, Gorka was a national security editor for Breitbart.

But a source told the Washington Examiner that Gorka's role in SIG was always meant to be temporary, and suggested he had been placed there while administration officials created a terrorism-related position for him elsewhere in the government.

A spokesman for the National Security Council said he did not "personally know" the details about Gorka's move.

He also spoke on television about counterterrorism as well, the source said. "Based on recent revelations about Mr. Gorka's public support for and membership in several anti-Semitic and racist groups in Hungary, he is clearly unfit to serve in any position of responsibility in the White House".


"Incorrect", one source told Breitbart News when asked about reports from the Washington Examiner and CNN that Gorka was leaving the White House.

At least 18 Democratic representatives signed a letter calling on President Trump to dismiss the top security adviser. The Daily Beast reported on Friday that the admin was looking to dump Gorka somewhere else, and now a few more officials appear to be confirming that is indeed the plan.

Gorka previously drew scrutiny when leaders of a Hungarian far-right group that the US State Department lists as having been directed by the Nazis in World War II, said the official had formally sworn allegiance to the organization. That source who talked about Gorka "giving White House tours" and not doing much sounds jealous to me. His wearing of a medal awarded to his father by by the Hungarian group Vitezi Rend - or Order of Heroes - at the inaugural ball for the president raised eyebrows, as the group, which was anti-Soviet, has been linked by some to Nazi colluders.

He still had yet to receive security clearance as recently as March, precluding him from sitting in on top-level meetings, BuzzFeed News reported earlier this week.
