Sebastian Gorka Resigns, Claims Opponents Of "MAGA" Agenda Occupying White House

The White House, however, denied that Gorka had quit, but noted that he was no longer working for the administration.

Several White House officials have told CNN Gorka was forced out of the administration.

Gorka was one of Trump's most prominent cheerleaders, frequently hitting the airwaves to defend the President's policies and public statements.

While Schumer did not mention the White House's Friday announcement that the president's adviser, Sebastian Gorka, had left his post as deputy assistant, it too was a controversial announcement.

'Regrettably, outside of yourself, the individuals who most embodied and represented the policies that will 'Make America Great Again, ' have been internally countered, systematically removed, or undermined in recent months.

"This was made patently obvious as I read the text of your speech on Afghanistan this week ..."

Expressing his strong belief in the Trump presidency, Gorka in his letter has also written, "Your presidency will prove to be one of the most significant events in modern American politics".

On Saturday, for what may be the first time, a right-wing media figure joined in on the conversation about Gorka's job, specifically The Washington Examiner's Jamie Weinstein, in a Fox News appearance.

Bannon was removed from his permanent seat on the council in April, and several officials who came to the council under fired national security adviser Michael Flynn were also dismissed in recent weeks, including retired Col. Derek Harvey and the council's senior director of intelligence, Ezra Cohen-Watnick.

Sebastian Gorka, now former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, was sacked on Friday - or was he?

Gorka, an ally of Bannon's who worked as a national security editor at Breitbart before joining the White House, reiterated during Saturday's show that he resigned over frustration with other factions of White House staffers.

A person familiar with the situation said Kelly was coming up empty when it came to Gorka's role, though he recognized his efforts to promote Trump's message on television.

While Bannon's departure from the White House last week was widely viewed as a blow to his personal agenda, Bannon insisted that his influence over the direction of the country will be bolstered by his position as an outside critic and proponent of the administration.
