The brawl at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, was the final straw for Matthew Pottinger, a former journalist and White House official who testified before the House Committee on Thursday.

As the violence unfolded, Mr. Pottinger, Mr. Trump's deputy national security adviser, was there at the White House. Mr. Pottinger submitted his resignation after watching the violence take place and seeing how the former president handled the situation.

Matthew Pottinger Religion: Is He Jewish?

Matthew Pottinger's religion is often discussed due to his indulgence in admiring Jewish culture. This is why people think he might be religiously inclined to Moses. Further, his looks have also been associated with Judaism, a blatant stereotype going strong in the social media world. Few hints here and there, and netizens put their heart out to directing possibilities on the Internet. 

 A former deputy national security adviser for the United States was a member of the joint US-Israel committee when Trump was still in office. In the meantime, a Jewish insider expressed that he was openly supporting Israel. In addition, between 2005 and 2010, the former U.S. Marine deployed to both the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

Despite all this, he has never spoken about his religious belief anywhere. Hence, Matthew may or may not be Jewish or Christian; it can never be determined unless he chooses to reveal it himself. Supporting a group of people is a different thing altogether. We tend to give our hands to a group of people just out of humanity as well and need not believe what they believe.
