The impeachment fight in Congress is quickly ratcheting up.
Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff are pushing to impeach the President by the end of the year.
And Trey Gowdy made an announcement about Trump’s impeachment that left everyone stunned.
When Trey Gowdy retired from Congress last year, the former South Carolina Congressman claimed he was done with politics.
That proved not to be the case.
Gowdy agreed to join Donald Trump’s outside legal team to help the President fend off this latest impeachment coup.
Fox News reports:
Former U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., is joining President Trump’s legal team as outside counsel for the House’s expanding impeachment inquiry, according to a report.
An administration official who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity confirmed Gowdy’s hiring Tuesday.
Gowdy, who formerly chaired the House Oversight and Reform Committee, decided not seek to reelection last year and joined the law firm Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP after leaving office.
He has also been a Fox News contributor but the network would not immediately comment on Gowdy’s status after the Associated Press report.
Gowdy is well-respected among House Republicans for his skills in running an investigation.
As chair of the Benghazi Select Committee, Gowdy uncovered Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
When Gowdy served as a high-profile member of the House Intelligence and Oversight Committees, he dug up the FBI and Deep State’s abuses of power in spying on the Trump campaign.
Trump supporters can expect Gowdy to take on the role of the public face of the Trump legal team, going on TV making the President’s case to the American people.
