Subpoenas, indictments, arrests, plea deals, sexual assault allegations, you name it…the Trump administration is riddled with more scandals that we can possibly keep up with, which explains why this latest one slipped through the cracks.
Add Sebastian Gorka, Donald Trump’s former adviser, to the list of those who are now in trouble with the authorities, as an active warrant for his arrest has been discovered, according to new reports.
The warrant lists “firearm or ammunition abuse” as the reason for it’s issuance and has been in place since September 2016, which just happens to cover the entirety of Gorka’s White House work, according to BuzzFeed, citing reporting by Hungarian media outlet 444.
That means that during the entire seven months Gorka spent in the White House, including when meeting with Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó in Washington last March, an arrest warrant was pending overseas.
There aren’t many details listed in the description of the website of the Hungarian police, but it’s being speculated that the warrant may be related to an incident dating back to 2009.
Gorka has always been outspoken about his love of firearms, and has had past issues with them as well. The Hill points out that Gorka tried to bring a handgun onto an airliner at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in 2016 and was stopped by the police.
Gorka exited the White House about a week after former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon left.
Gorka declined to comment on the warrant to BuzzFeed, saying, “Don’t waste your time. I don’t talk to BuzzFeed, thank you.”
