Gorka claimed he resigned, but a White House official said that he did not.

Gorka's resignation comes exactly one week after chief White House strategist Steve Bannon officially left the White House, adding to the list of Friday night departures from the administration.

Sebastian Gorka did not resign, but I can confirm he no longer works at the White House", the body of the email read, and concluded with, "No attribution to me, please.

Vanita Gupta, president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, a coalition of more than 200 groups, said: "Sebastian Gorka's departure is long overdue and welcome, but he should not have been working in the White House in the first place". Gorka's ouster also reflects the ascendancy of new Trump national security adviser H.R. McMaster, who appears to have strongly influenced Trump's new interventionist stance on Afghanistan. Gorka also disputed the White House's account to the Washington Examiner's Sarah Westood. "As members of the U.S. Congress who care deeply about fighting anti-Semitism at home and overseas, we urge you to immediately dismiss senior White House counterterrorism adviser Sebastian Gorka", the letter said. And now, with Bannon and Gorka outside the White House, they are "more powerful than" the enemy "can possibly imagine" as they rally the troops of the movement for the battle against worldwide globalist elites.

At 8 p.m., the White House announced in a news release that Trump had officially pardoned Arpaio, the Arizona sheriff who had been found guilty of criminal contempt in July for disregarding a court order in a racial-profiling case.

"I realized after the President's speech this week on Afghanistan that he's not being well-served", Gorka said.

Gorka's TV appearances - during which he often sparred with hosts and reporters - were popular with Trump, however, complicating decisions about his future.

"The fact that those who drafted and approved the speech removed any mention of Radical Islam or radical Islamic terrorism proves that a crucial element of your presidential campaign has been lost", wrote Gorka. 'If you strike me down, I will be more powerful than you can ever imagine.' The left thinks they're winning.

Others say Gorka did resign but only after he was told Kelly had revoked his security clearance, which would have made it impossible for him to continue his job at the White House. "One to go. We can do this".

Among the controversies that have followed him is whether he is a member of a Hungarian Nazi-linked group Vitezi Rend.
