Former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka is now banned from YouTube

YouTube has banned the channel of former Donald Trump aide Sebastian Gorka for violating the platform’s policy forbidding disinformation about the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election, a spokesperson told MSN.

Gorka, who is apparently still serving on the National Security Education Board as a presidential appointee, was the subject of an award-winning 2017 investigation in the Forward that found that Gorka swore lifelong allegiance to a Hungarian Neo-Nazi group known as the Vitézi Rend before he came to the U.S.

It’s not clear which video upload led to Gorka’s channel, America First, being removed from YouTube, but the spokesperson said it was taken down after thrice violating the “presidential election integrity policy,” which “prohibits content” that “alleges widespread fraud or errors” during last year’s presidential election.

One episode uploaded last weekend was called “Can we stop the Next Steal?”

Gorka first worked as a policy consultant for the Trump campaign in 2015 and later served as a White House adviser until his removal in 2017. He was appointed to his current post last July.
