Donald Trump's campaign paid a Breitbart News national security editor $8,000 for consulting services last year, according to federal election records.

Sebastian Gorka received the payment in October, Buzzfeed News reports. The article cited Federal Election Commission filings.

Despite his title, Gorka hasn't actually worked at Brietbart in a traditional editor's role since 2014, Politico reports. Gorka hasn't written for the site since December, two sources told the site.

One of the sources told Politico that Gorka's position was of an "honorary title" that allows Breitbart to boast of having a top name on staff.

According to his website, Gorka holds a Ph.D. in political science from Corvinus University in Budapest, Hungary. He is the Major General Matthew C. Horner Distinguished Chair of Military Theory at Marine Corps University in Quantico, Va.

Gorka chairs the Threat Knowledge Group and has written essays and books on Islamic jihadism.

Breitbart CEO Larry Solov and editor-in-chief Alex Marlow did not respond to a request for comment, Politico reports.
