Trump Taps Trey Gowdy To Fight Bogus Impeachment Kangaroo Court

Less than 24 hours after the White House signaled former Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., would be joining the Trump legal team, the president himself told Newsmax on Thursday afternoon Gowdy would have to wait until January to become his lawyer because of federal lobbying rules. "I have to check that with Rudy because that would be a joke, because we all don't think much of him", she said of Gowdy, adding, "Are you kidding?"

Watch one of the best Gowdy moments below.

Trump said lobbying rules are preventing the former Republican congressman from SC from joining the team immediately.

Trump's personal attorney, Jay Sekulow, confirmed in a statement tonight that Gowdy would serve as counsel to the president.

Marie Yovanovitch, who served as USA ambassador to Ukraine until May 2019, testified as part of the House of Representatives' impeachment inquiry, which was sparked by a whistleblower complaint alleging Trump abused his power by pushing for Ukraine investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

Gowdy, a former Fox News contributor, joined the legal team this week as the House's impeachment inquiry expands.

"Trey's command of the law is well known and his service on Capitol Hill will be a great asset as a member of our team", Sekulow said.

Gowdy was chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the head of the House Benghazi Committee in charge of investigating the terrorists attack in Libya that left four Americans dead including ambassador Christopher Stevens.

The White House counsel issued a letter on Tuesday night saying the administration would not cooperate with impeachment inquiry because it didn't consider it "fair".

Trump is suiting up for a legal fight with the House as the impeachment inquiry heats up.

Since leaving Congress in 2018, Gowdy has joined the firm Nelson, Mullins, Riley and Scarborough.

In a statement, Gowdy said that he would return to practicing law instead of seeking a fifth term.
