Trey Gowdy Joining Trump Legal Team Fighting Impeachment

Former U.S. Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) is now joining Trump’s legal team as outside counsel to counter the House’s impeachment inquiry into the President over the Ukraine-Trump phone call, according to a report.

On Tuesday, an Administration official spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity confirmed Gowdy’s hiring.

Gowdy formerly was the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee and has been a regular Fox News contributor ever since leaving office.

A source told Axios that Trey Gowdy and his experience in the Benghazi hearings are seen as an asset by the Trump administration. He is expected to work behind the scenes with the White House and to also stump for he President in the media.

The White House recently wrote an eight-page letter to Congress and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday refusing to take part in the “illegal” investigation. The letter cited the Houses’ violation “fundamental fairness and constitutionally mandated due process” and the lack of “any legitimate constitutional foundation.”

Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded saying, “The White House should be warned that continued efforts to hide the truth of the President’s abuse of power from the American people will be regarded as further evidence of obstruction. Mr. President, you are not above the law. You will be held accountable.”

House Democrats have sent several subpoenas to related officials in their inquiry including the White House, ambassador Gordon Sondland, the Defense Department, the White House Office of Management and Budget, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Even now, Vice President Mike Pence is facing some requests for documents.

Gowdy seems like an obvious choice for counsel as he has experience with House procedures and rules. He did not seek reelection last year and instead joined law firm Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP.
