Democrats woke up to some very bad news today.
According to Law & Crime, former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy has agreed to help Trump’s legal team fight off this impeachment attempt.
Back in the Game
Ever since this impeachment attempt was started, Gowdy has been vocally against it.
However, up until now, he has merely offered free advice to Trump’s team and has kept the administration at arm’s length.
Remember, after Trump won the election, there were more than a few reports Trump offered Gowdy several positions to make him a part of this administration, and Gowdy reportedly turned them all down.
In fact, he was so fed up with our political process that he decided to retire from Congress in 2018 rather than continue down a path he openly stated was fruitless and often a waste of time.
Gowdy has taken a somewhat similar approach to the request to have him join Trump’s legal team.
While Gowdy is reportedly back in the game and will help Trump’s legal team, he is doing so as an outside counsel and not considered an actual team member of Trump’s legal team.
Regardless of how he is involved, Trump is clearly just happy to have him on the team in some way, shape, or form.
Already on the Attack
Gowdy has not wasted any time going after Democrats on this and recently blasted Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) during an appearance on Fox News.
Gowdy stated, “I think he got four only because you can’t get five,” Gowdy stated about Schiff regarding the truthfulness of claims about not speaking to the whistleblower prior to the complaint being filed.
“I mean, he got the maximum sentence you could get from the Washington Post fact-checker and don’t you know how hard that was for the Washington Post to give Adam Schiff four Pinocchios?”
Gowdy did not stop there, either, going after Schiff for his rather dramatic reading of the Ukraine transcript.
He stated, “The same guy that had the parody a week or so ago, the same guy that says he has evidence that even [former Special Counsel Robert] Mueller couldn’t find.
“The question I had is, ‘How long is Speaker Pelosi going to put up with Adam mishandling this investigation?’”
Regardless of the capacity that Gowdy is joining this team, it is very bad news for Democrats.
Gowdy is an extremely skilled attorney and was relentless during his time on House committees, so there is little doubt every Democrat in the House right now is stocking up on antacids.
