Sebastian Gorka Emerges As Trump's Favorite Cable News Attack Dog

Gorka called the idea that there is a "bunker mentality" or "crisis" about this week's Donald Jr. news in the White House "laughable", stating: "We are pushing the Make America Great Again agenda".

The Trump administration wants to give collaboration and cooperation with Russia a chance, and this is the reason why it is considering to return the Russian diplomatic compounds that were seized by the previous Obama government past year, a presidential aide has said.

Gorka said "the last thing" one could say about Trump was that he was weak, and that Trump had pressed Russian President Vladimir Putin on the matter at a meeting last Friday.

The move would reverse a significant Obama administration rebuke for election meddling.

On Wednesday night, advisors Kellyanne Conway and Sebastian Gorka did all three in a dizzying, plate-juggling display of bullshit that helpfully demonstrates why interviewing them isn't useful or helpful, except to the White House.

"Last year the Barack Obama administration seized the diplomatic compound in Maryland and NY of the Russians because they were being used for intelligence-related purposes", Tapper began.

Gorka caught himself as soon as he said it, but it was too late. We may not share the same type of statesman view of the world.

Russian authorities repeatedly urged the United States to restore access to Russian diplomatic property.

There have been reports in the Russian media that Russia might expels 30 US diplomats and seize a summer residence of the US Embassy in northwestern Moscow in a tit-for-tat measure.

Gorka, we should be reminded, doesn't appear to have any actual security clearance.

"It's not about you", Gorka retorted.

He continued: "I stand by what the president and his son said".

Trump, he said is a pragmatist.

"We have to move on in the interests of USA national security and saving innocent lives", Gorka said.

When asked by CNN's Jake Tapper why Trump would give back compounds to the Russians that were taken away by Obama after they attacked the 2016 election, Trump's Deputy Assistant Sebastian Gorka said that it was because they wanted to give collaboration with Russia a chance.
