Trump Adviser Sebastian Gorka Calls Mosque Attack a False Flag

HeadlineAug 11, 2017
H10

Ellison’s comments came after Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to the president, suggested the Minnesota mosque bombing was a “false flag” attack. Gorka was speaking Tuesday on MSNBC.

Sebastian Gorka: “There’s a great rule: All initial reports are false. You have to check them. You have to find out who the perpetrators are. We’ve had a series of crimes committed, alleged hate crimes, by right-wing individuals in the last six months, that turned out to actually have been propagated by the left. So let’s wait and see. Let’s allow the local authorities to provide their assessment, and then the White House will make its comments.”

The Jewish newspaper The Forward reports Gorka has links to a Hungarian far-right, Nazi-allied group and supported an anti-Semitic and racist paramilitary militia in Hungary while he served as a Hungarian politician.
