Fox News Hires Former Trump Aide Sebastian Gorka

Gorka exited White House role in August

Former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka has joined Fox News as an analyst, a representative for the channel told TheWrap.

Fox News personality Sean Hannity announced the news on his radio show on Wednesday during an interview with Gorka. Hannity referred to Gorka’s title as “national security strategist.”

“Welcome to the Fox family,” Hannity told Gorka. “You’re a true patriot hero and an amazing, amazing political analyst and strategic analyst. Thank you for being with us, and we’re so happy for your success.”

Gorka exited his role as deputy assistant to Trump in August, one week after the departure of chief strategist Steve Bannon.

While Gorka said at the time that he resigned due to his frustration about the direction of the administration, The New York Times reported that he was forced out.

In April of this year the New York Times noted that Gorka “has been accused of having links to far-right groups in Europe.” Other publications including The Guardian accused Gorka of sympathizing with the genocide carried out by the 1930s and 1940s regime of Nazi Germany due to his father’s membership in the Hungarian Historical Order of Vitéz.

Shortly after exiting his position on Trump’s team, Gorka announced that he was joining Bannon by returning to Breitbart News.
