President Trump’s former adviser, Sebastian Gorka, has had an active warrant for his arrest in Hungary since September 2016, according to a report by Hungarian media outlet 444.
The warrant was issued over a “firearm or ammunition abuse” incident and has been in place since before he joined the Trump administration, according to BuzzFeed.
In an unrelated incident, Gorka was stopped by police in 2016 after he attempted to bring a handgun onto an airliner at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
The Hill adds:
Gorka, who was born in London to Hungarian parents, left his position as special assistant to Trump in August, roughly a week after former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon’s departure. Gorka was one of Trump’s most controversial advisers, primarily over his alleged ties to Hungarian fascists.
Gorka has a background in counterterrorism and was reportedly advising Trump on counterterrorism efforts, though his actual role in the White House was never fully detailed. He was also reportedly never able to obtain security clearance, sparking more backlash about his role in the administration.
