Budapest - Hungarian police had an arrest warrant open for Sebastian Gorka during the eight months he spent as a national security aide to U.S. President Donald Trump.

The warrant issued in September 2016 is for unspecified weapons or ammunitions charges. It remained posted Thursday on the website of Hungary’s national police.

The British-born Gorka has Hungarian heritage and lived in Hungary for years starting in the early 1990s. He worked for Hungary’s defense ministry during 1993-1998 and tried to establish a radical right-wing party in Hungary, the New Democratic Coalition, in 2007.

That he was wanted by Hungarian law enforcement while working for the White House appears to have escaped public notice before it was first reported Thursday by Hungary’s 444.hu website, based on a reader’s tip.

Reacting to reports saying the warrant might have stemmed from charges possibly filed in 2009, Gorka tweeted: “I moved to America in 2008. (LEGALLY!).”

Hungarian police have not released any details about why the warrant was obtained and has languished so long.

Gorka joined the Trump administration as a counterterrorism adviser. But his exact responsibilities were not clearly outlined, and he was unable to get clearance for the National Security Council because of a January 2016 charge for carrying a weapon at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

Gorka entered an Alford plea to the charge later that year, acknowledging that prosecutors could likely prove their case but admitting no wrongdoing. A Virginia court ordered him to forfeit the weapon and “be on general good behavior” for six months.

Gorka left his White House position in August, a week after the exit of chief strategist Steve Bannon. Bannon was an ally of Gorka’s, who was an editor at Breitbart News from early 2014, known for his hard-line views on immigration and terrorism.

Gorka told The Associated Press he resigned, though a White House official said that was not the case.

Since November, Gorka been a national security strategist for Fox News.

Simple. Most frum yiddin have r"l been alt-educated in our yeshivos. Their version of history includes debunked works of fiction such as the novel Perfidy and Artscroll 'his-story' books written to document history as it should have happened, not as it did happen.

BH Artscroll has done a great job of bringing Torah to the masses and our yeshivos do a great job at bringing Torah to their children, but neither is any good at documenting and and transmitting historical truths, good, bad and ugly.

Your average Yeshiva mechanaich is as educated in history as Barbara Tuchman is in tosfos on bava basra.

Indoctrination uber education.

History? You mean like actually mentally applying history to what's relevant nowadays. For example are Spaniards still considered dangerous because of the inquisition? How about Romans? Should we be concerned about Romans?

History has the be well thought thru. What you should learn from Jewish history is that when a group of people or nations call for the destruction of the jews and actually engage in actions that kill us, that's who is our enemy. Muslims are our enemy not some bored sole teenagers playing video games down south.
