5. Sebastian Gorka and “National Security”
Sebastian Gorka, the deputy assistant to Trump, stayed in his role for a total of seven months before resigning. According to one White House insider, “his only job appears to be to go on talk radio or Fox News to defend the indefensible.”
The Rolling Stone said, “It’s not easy to find out exactly what Gorka does in the White House for his $155,000 salary.”
A former Breitbart national security editor, Gorka worked closely with Steve Bannon while the two were in the White House.
Gorka resigned because “the fact that those who drafted and approved the speech removed any mention of Radical Islam or radical Islamic terrorism proves that a crucial element of your presidential campaign has been lost.”
There was a warrant for Gorka’s arrest in Hungary while he served in the White House. Allegedly, he was wanted for “firearm or ammunition abuse” which oddly didn’t stop him from traveling to Europe with Secretary of State Pompeo in October of last year.
