While Sebastian Gorka continues to say he resigned from his White House post, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes produced evidence Monday night that suggests he may have been removed.
Hayes broadcast the contents of an email from Friday night, which was circulated among the ranks of the Secret Service an hour before news broke on the Federalist’s website that Gorka had resigned,
It warned officers not to allow him into the building.
The Secret Service was warned not to allow Sebastian Gorka (pictured) into the White House on Friday, suggesting he may not have resigned, but been fired
Gorka, the email said, had been deemed a ‘do not enter’ in the Workers and Visitors Entry System, which allows access to the White House.
‘And his pass has been deactivated,’ the correspondence said.
A follow-up email, which Haye’s released, had the subject line: ‘Staff do not admit Gorka.’
‘Mr. Gorka is more than likely still in possession of his PIV and the WH pass, as his DNA status was performed without him being on Complex,’ the warning read.
Other evidence that suggested Gorka was booted came in the form of a statement from the White House on Friday night.
‘Sebastian Gorka did not resign, but I can confirm he is no longer with the White House,’ the statement said.
Gorka, of course, is continuing to make the media rounds to tell his side of the story.
Last night Breitbart News, which is again headed by ex-White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, released a full copy of Gorka’s resignation letter.
Sebastian Gorka appeared on Fox & Friends Tuesday morning and continued to say that he was the one who made the decision to leave the White House
Sebastian Gorka (left) told the hosts of Fox & Friends that he left because he felt that there were White House staffers working against the ‘Make America Great Again’ agenda
In it, Gorka railed against the anti-‘Make America Great Again’ forces, which have been ‘internally countered, systematically removed, or undermined in recent months.’
This came to a head, the ex- White House adviser said, when President Trump gave his Afghanistan speech last week and didn’t utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism,’ Gorka said.
‘As a result, the best and most effective way I can support you, Mr. President, is from outside the People’s House,’ Gorka said in the letter.
He made a similar argument on Fox & Friends Tuesday morning.
‘You can read the reasons for why I resigned and one of the reasons I resigned is the “MAGA” platform, the “Make America Great Again” platform that brought us into the White House, there are a lot of people in that building who really don’t agree with it and weren’t associated with it,’ Gorka said. ‘So that’s why I left so we could support the president from the outside because that’s why he was elected and he’s not going to give up.’
‘The question is are the people around him going to support him?’ Gorka mused. ‘At least the people on the outside like myself, Steve Bannon, we are going to support him in the fullest.’
