Controversial White House aide Sebastian Gorka gets a secretive new job
Sebastian Gorka, controversial security adviser to President Trump, will be leaving the White House for a secretive new job with the feds, a report says.
The top counterterrorism aide is taking on a role within the Trump administration that will center around the “war of ideas” involving radical Islamic extremists and how to combat terrorism, according to the Washington Examiner.
A senior official told the outlet that he will be appointed to an undisclosed federal agency following his stint with the Strategic Initiatives Group, which is an internal White House organization that works out of the West Wing.
The move reportedly comes amid rumors that he hadn’t been able to fulfill his duties as national security adviser due to a lack of a security clearance.
