Buzzfeed News reports:
Former Trump White House staffer Sebastian Gorka has an active warrant out for his arrest in his native Hungary, according to the Hungarian police’s website.
Gorka, whose exact role in the White House while serving as a deputy assistant to the president was never entirely clear, apparently is in trouble with the law over a charge of “firearm or ammunition abuse.” The warrant, first reported in Hungarian online outlet 444, was issued on September 17, 2016, prior to Trump’s election.
That means that the entire seven months Gorka spent in the White House, including when meeting with Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó in Washington last March, an arrest warrant was pending overseas. Gorka declined to comment. “Don’t waste your time,” he said when reached by phone. “I don’t talk to BuzzFeed, thank you.”
