Trey Gowdy turned impeachment upside down with one decision

The Senate impeachment trial is expected to start in the next few weeks.

President Trump is still building out his defense and expects Republicans to support him across the board.

And Trey Gowdy turned impeachment upside down with one decision.

The status of Trey Gowdy joining the President’s legal team finally reached a conclusion.

For months it was speculated that Gowdy would join the team.

But laws governing ex-members of Congress’s lobbying activities prevented Gowdy from joining the President’s legal defense team until January.

In an interview with McLatchy, Gowdy finally settled the question once and for all by stating he would not be joining the President’s legal team.

The State reports:

Amid confusion late last year regarding his status on President Donald Trump’s legal team, former Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy said Thursday he has no plans to formally assist the White House in its effort to defend the president in the Senate’s upcoming impeachment trial.

“The president has good lawyers and more importantly good facts,” Gowdy said in an email to McClatchy. “He does not need another lawyer added to his team. He needs the trial to begin and end.”

The statement ends months of speculation and intrigue in Washington about whether Gowdy could be persuaded to return to the fray after leaving Congress in January 2019, vowing he was done with politics for good, to resume private law practice in South Carolina.

Gowdy was spotted golfing and dining with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, the president’s resort in Palm Beach, Fla., this past weekend — a sign the four-term congressman may yet act as an informal adviser to the administration as it braces for the next phase of congressional efforts to remove the president from office.

Gowdy was expected to defend the President on TV as the public face of the President’s legal defense.

Trump supporters are disappointed as Gowdy was a ruthlessly effective television presence in exposing the Russian collusion hoax.

  1. When president Trump gets tired of winning in 14 or 16 more years…lol…. I hope Trey Gowdy runs for president. He would be a great man to keep America great and our conservative values in tact….you know….the very thing that has made and kept America the greatest country on the face off the earth and our belief in God Almighty!!

  2. JACK, THERE’S A RULE THAT ONCE YOU LEAVE OFFICE YOU HAVE TO STAY AWAY FOR A FULL YEAR WHICH JUST ENDED.

  3. You meant to say capitalist, not communist. Republicans are capitalist.
    I know a lot of people get those two words mixed up because they both start with a “C” and end with a “t”.
    FYI; democrats are “social -ist”. That word starts with an “S” and ends with a “t”.

  4. Humpty attacked so he could distract from the impeachment, why now, if he’s in a conflict or war with another country, it will be harder to get rid of him and he knows that, but so do a lot of other people, humpty is a conniving and dishonest! Republicans are the communist, what a bunch of fckin losers! You guys are the biggest reenforced dillusion in history!

  5. All the Democrats that voted for impeachment will be Branded for the rest of their lives Americans will remove them from Congress and political life

  6. Trey is the best. I’m glad he’s on our side an not a damn communist like half of America now is. When president trumps terms ends….10 or 12 years from now…..lol, I hope trey runs for president!!

  7. The best thing President Trump can do is let the leftist, lying dems proceed. They will be exposed as a coup and prosecuted.

  8. So he should have a third term? Show about a forth or even fifth? He seems healthy enough to be ruler of America well into his 90’s. What do you think?

  9. Omar has been indicted? I didn’t hear about that. On what charges? Being a Muslim or for being a refugee? Or is it for being black? Probably all three, huh? Serves her right. In God’s country we don’t take kindly to Muslim refugees, especially if they’re black, right!? Send her home!

  10. Pardon the typos. I’m typing on my iPad and hit enter by mistake and unfortunately there is no option to edit after the fact.

    Speaking of facts, you’re not getting them.

  11. This is.not a trial in the sense as a civil or criminal proceeding. Yes, there is a defendant, jury and a judge that will be presiding, but the jury doesn’t get to change the rules with a majority vote like they do in an impeachment trial. With 52 Republican Senators, they can simply vote to end the hearing immediately after it commences so long as 3 do not break ranks. Trey Gowdy isn’t going to make or break it for the president

  12. If he’s such a good lawyer, his stepping out of defending this defendant Trump says volume over his (Trey’s) and the President’s prospects…

  13. Agree, Nancy Pelosi is not delivering the impeachment to the Senate because she knows it will never fly.

  14. Oh fear not my friend. Their day in court is coming. I want to see the Government bankrupt them like they did General Flynn and others with their sham investigations and sham indictments.

  15. Keith it would be great if they would do the job that they was elected to do. And it wasn’t to harass and frame the president.

  16. When Gowdy was asked why he didn’t put anyone on notice or in jail. He responded, he was on a committee, he had no power to do anything except bring his findings to the floor. No one on that committee had the power to do anything it is not a Court of law. I do believe this is one reason he became so frustrated and said he would rather be in a real Court than in the political ring..and soon gave his resignation.

  17. Julio, I am sure you thought the USA started WWII and that Pearl Harbor never happened. I am sure that you think Poland started WWII by forcing Germany to invade. The Democrats
    idea of peace is appeasement and surrender to evil. The PURE EVIL, Hatred, and hostility
    towards the civilized world that uncivilized, barbaric, Muslim nations represent. Guess
    what, Muslims do no understand peace. love and kisses. All they get is a kick in the
    posterior.

  18. JULIO: Rolling Stone magazine prints any and all stories that will increase sales, whether the story is logical or not. Please know that. Next, please be assured that Trump does not need to start a war to get re-elected, nor does Biden pose any threat to Trump’s re-election. Trump has every right to attack a person who has killed thousands of people, and he has also has every right to ask questions when American people have been swindled and lied to repeatedly. Trump has been looking out for your best interests, as well as mine, and I am so very grateful.

  19. Hey, who knows…if Trey Gowdy is admitted to practice in your state or federal district, maybe he’d do it pro bono. Can’t hurt in asking.

  20. Couldn’t agree with you more. I have yet to hear or see any “facts” about the president that the Democrats and their followers would be considered illegal. I wish the Special Prosecutor will reach back as far as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and prosecute them before the statute of limitations runs out.

    I hope that Trey Gowdy at least stays involved in the impeachment case and offers his opinion when asked. I think he’s an outstanding attorney and politician.

  21. IF BARR WOULD HURRY UP & FINISH
    UP THAT WOULD BE
    MOST LIKLEY TO !!!
    HAPPEN
    ALONG WITH THE OBAMAS CLINTONS & THE REST OF THE GANG
    WE CAN ONLY HOPE

  22. THAT IS !!!!!
    EXACTLY WHAT TRUMP NEEDS ON HIS DEFENCE TEAM
    A NO NONSENCE
    WONT BACK DOWN
    DONT F E A R !!
    THE DEMOCRATS
    DAMN GOOD LAWYER TREY THE
    BULLDOG !!! GOWDY
    I WAS REALLY !!!
    HOPING HE WOULD !
    JOIN HIS DEFENCE TEAM
    BECAUSE SOME TIMES YOU NEED
    THE BEST !!!!
    TO DEFEND !! THE BEST !!
    I CAN ONLY HOPE IF THINGS START TO GO ARY
    TREY WILL !!!
    STEP IN & STEP UP
    & TAKE THE LEAD

  23. President needing a legal team? Huh! We see it everyday in what the democrates are up to. He hasn’t done one thing wrong. I wished we can move on and get things rolling in prosecuting Omar, the Bidens and the rest for their crimes. Put them in jail and Mrs. Biden can be their trustee and serve them their food.

  24. Let PennyK realize that if she was any “dumber” she would be in “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not”

  25. As much as I like Trey Gowdy, since I’ve known of him; it seems like all smoke and no roast. Whatever.. he’s not important. The case speaks for itself. The dems. are ridiculous and they know it. This is going nowhere.

  26. God Bless you Mr. Gowdy! One heck of a smart man. Wish he was my innocent brothers lawyer…. I just can’t afford a high ranking lawyer for my innocent brother.

  27. Trey Gowdy will do the right thing, something Democrats know nothing about. Demons can’t be trusted,their party is a failure to mankind. Americans can see their disturbing priorities. They’ll drag America into the pits of hell. And blame someone else.

  28. He will be working behind the scenes. He won’t be front and center, but Trey will play a key role in defending Trump The Trump team isn’t like the knee jerk idiots that started this witch-hunt

  29. Trey Gowdy will play a roll in the impeachment proceedings whether as a legal adviser or the media face/voice or whatever he is asked to do because, he is first and foremost a conservative Republican, a patriotic American and a supporter of the President.
    I am happy he is willing and he will be a asset to the team in whatever capacity he serves.
