Researcher Michael Smith needled Gorka with accusations like that on Twitter until, in February, Gorka called him from his personal cellphone and threatened to refer the posts to the White House's legal counsel.
Cohn said the tax overhaul is the White House's "number one focus right now" and said the president will be making a major push for changing the nation's tax system beginning next week.
While the news about Gorka, fired or not, was welcomed by many, it was not without controversy.
There is no legal dispute over Trump's ability to pardon in a contempt of court case, as was Arpaio's.
The timing of Trump's actions on Arpaio and transgender people in the armed services draw a harsh rebuke from the Senate's top Democrat, Chuck Schumer of NY, who accused the president of deliberately taking controversial moves at a time when the nation was focused on Hurricane Harvey. "Then he ran to Camp David", Schumer, of NY, said in a series of tweets.
Schumer added, "The only reason to do these right now is to use the cover of Hurricane Harvey to avoid scrutiny".
The coordinated effort drew quick notice from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, who slammed the news dump as "so sad, so weak".
Press secretary Sarah Sanders also took the podium and rushed through questions, cutting off some reporters as they sought to ask follow-ups or press for fuller answers.

When a bomb exploded at a Mosque in outside of Minneapolis, Gorka defended Trump's silence on the attack by suggesting that it could have been a "fake hate crime".
The tweet comes as President Trump has faced criticism for not being more forceful in his response to the white supremacy violence in Charlottesville two weeks ago, where a young woman was killed when a auto plowed into a crowd.
"Throughout his time as sheriff, Arpaio continued his life's work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration". Someone close to Mr Gorka confirmed the letter's authenticity to The Washington Post.
A person familiar with the situation said Kelly was coming up empty when it came to Gorka's role, though he recognized his efforts to promote Trump's message on television. But Trump and Bannon personally intervened to save his job, the Daily Beastreported.
The two Congress members accused Gorka and aide Stephen Miller of carrying on extremist ideas touted by the president's former chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, calling for their salaries to no longer be funded by taxpayer dollars.
Much of the criticism of Trump's transgender ban had already been aired since he first announced it in a tweet a month ago.
Trump's memo bans transgender individuals from enlisting and instructs the Pentagon to stop paying for gender reassignment surgery-as well as to sort out how best to address the thousands of transgender people who now serve in the military.
