"We've had a series of crimes committed, alleged hate crimes by rivaling individuals in the last six months that turned out to actually be propagated by the left, so let's wait and see".
When asked who he thought was the source of recent White House leaks, Gorka responded, "I'm not going to get involved in the question of whose leaking because we have criminal referrals ... already in front of the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation".
"I find this comment outrageous and offensive".
RUHLE: You don't have to make a statement about who did it, but you can make a statement denouncing how bad it would be to attack a building of worship. "Let's allow the local authorities to provide their assessment, and then the White House will make its comments", he added. "What prevents the president from expressing sympathy for members of the house of worship that was attacked?" he told Buzzfeed News.
He also suggested that the crime might not be a terrorist attack because of previous instances of "fake hate crimes".
The bomb, which according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation was a homemade explosive device, tore through the Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center Saturday and was called an "act of terrorism" by Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton.
Mohamed Omar, executive director of the Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center, told The Associated Press on Monday that his community doesn't have the money for security cameras.
Counterterrorism adviser Sebastian Gorka, who wears the uniform and medals of a Hungarian group with historical links to Nazi Germany, appeared Tuesday morning on MSNBC - where he insisted that only Islamic extremists had carried out "serious" terrorist attacks in the U.S.
"You do not test President Donald Trump and you certainly don't test a four star marine general like General John F. Kelly", Gorka concluded.
Pressed about Trump's silence, White House adviser Sebastian Gorka seemed to mock the question, telling MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle, "Hold your horses, count to 10, and the president will do what he deems fit". If the White House wants to wait until it's absolutely certain the president has all the facts about what happened, fine. Indeed, the local police in the Philippines denied the terrorism claim, insisting the mass shooting had been tied to a casino robbery.
