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. Also, in light of Gorka's reported links to anti-semitic groups, Democratic Congressman Jerrold Nadler submitted an request to the Trump administration in March asking for Gorka's immigration paperwork so that the House Judiciary Panel could "be assured that he did not enter this country under false pretenses". Many political reporters might not have been watching the Pennsylvania event with the President, as some were instead back at the White House Correspondent's Dinner in Washington - and Mr. Trump was very happy to throw a few jabs at the news media - and remind everyone that he was not going to the event. That source who talked about Gorka "giving White House tours" and not doing much sounds jealous to me. He will take a job at a federal agency dealing with "the war of ideas" surrounding the battle against radical Islamic terrorism, two sources speaking on the condition of anonymity told the Washington Examiner on Sunday.

But a CNN KFile review of Gorka's public comments throughout the presidential campaign shows that even after his work for Trump, the former Breitbart editor offered stinging critiques of his future boss's rhetoric on key foreign policy issues from terrorism to Russian Federation and China. "An official said Gorka has been in a "holding pattern" while he waited for the position, which will not be at the State Department, to be established".

Newsweek was unable to immediately reach Gorka or the White House for comment.

The news follows questions concerning Gorka's security clearance status.

One source even claimed that Gorka's position on the White House's Strategic Initiatives Group was always meant to be temporary. 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.
