Sebastian Gorka Leaves ‘Pizzagate’ Super PAC

Sebastian Gorka’s post-White House tenure with a group founded by “Pizzagate” conspiracy theorists was short-lived. After Gorka’s August ouster from the White House, where he served as a counterterrorism adviser, the notorious sidewalk-parker joined the MAGA Coalition, a pro-Trump super PAC founded and run by individuals who have promoted conspiracy theories surrounding the 2016 murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, and “raised questions” about former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta supposedly running a child sex-trafficking ring out of the basement of a D.C. pizzeria. Gorka wasn’t with the group for long. According to a source familiar with the situation, he left the MAGA Coalition a few weeks ago after securing a paid contributorship with Fox News. The group continues to promote Gorka heavily on its homepage. Neither Gorka nor the MAGA Coalition responded to requests for comment.
