Sebastian Gorka resigns from the White House
Sebastian Gorka, the former Breitbart staffer and deputy assistant to President Trump who was known for his fiery TV appearances defending his boss, is out at the White House.
From a White House Official: "Sebastian Gorka did not resign, but I can confirm he no longer works at the White House."
- The Federalist's Mollie Hemingway first reported Gorka's resination which a source with direct knowledge confirmed to Axios.
- Gorka's resignation letter, quoted by Hemingway, tells the president he can better serve his America First agenda from the outside: "[I]t is clear to me that forces that do not support the MAGA promise are – for now – ascendant within the White House..."
- His resignation is both a fallout from Steve Bannon's departure, and a sign of Chief of Staff John Kelly's tightening control of the White House's sprawling, unaccountable fiefdoms.
