Hungary’s government considered Donald Trump’s Hungarian-born advisor an opportunity to bring information to the president. If someone made a mistake, then it was the US, as those who work near the president have been screened a thousand times, and they didn’t find anything wrong with employing Sebastian Gorka, Christian Democrat MP Istvan Hollik said, speaking at a press conference on another topic.
Earlier, Hungarian press reported that there is an arrest warrant against Gorka in Hungary, and Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto didn’t know about when they met last year in Washington, but the ministry said it wouldn’t be part of their normal protocol to browse Police.hu before meeting senior White House staff.
According to 444.hu Gorka is wanted for firearm or ammunition abuse, but it’s unclear what he did, because the police hasn’t disclosed more details.
After the news reached the international press, Gorka said that incident dates back to 2009, but he moved to the US in 2008. The formed advisor called the articles “fake news”. Speaking to Breitbart, Gorka denied the arrest warrant, and asked the Hungarian authorities to provide an explanation. According to Police.hu the incident might have happened in 2009, the warrant was issued in 2016.
