Trey Gowdy sat on the sidelines of the Democrats’ attempted coup against the President.
That all just changed.
And Trey Gowdy said this one word about impeaching Trump that no one saw coming.
Donald Trump and his lawyers began hunting around for more legal talent to beef up Trump’s ability to fight back against the Democrats’ attempted coup to overthrow a duly elected President.
One name the President and his lawyers immediately settled on was former Republican Congressman and current Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy.
After some wrangling, Gowdy finally said the one word the President and his team were hoping to hear – “yes.”
The Associated Press exclusively reports:
Former Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy has been tapped to serve as outside counsel to President Donald Trump as the House impeachment inquiry expands.
That’s according to an administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal legal matters.
Gowdy is expected to be one of the most prominent faces of the President’s legal team.
Trump supporters can expect to see Gowdy making the cable news and Sunday show rounds defending the President from one of the greatest scams in human history.
Even some of the left see this Ukraine impeachment push as the Russian collusion hoax repackaged.
Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi wrote, “In 2016 we saw a pair of electoral revolts, one on the right and one on the left, against the cratering popularity of our political elite. The rightist populist revolt succeeded, the Sanders movement did not. Ukrainegate to me looks like a continuation of Russiagate, which was a reaction of that defeated political elite to the rightists. I don’t feel solidarity with either group.”
President Trump has often made the point that this entire episode is nothing more than a scam.
But it is a serious situation politically.
The administration fired off a letter to Pelosi throwing down the gauntlet declaring that until the Democrats voted to open an official impeachment inquiry they would not cooperate with any subpoenas.
“Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice. In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the Executive Branch, and all future occupants of the Office of the Presidency, President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances,” White House counsel Pat Cipollone wrote.
This battle is sure to end up in court.
But impeachment is also a political and public relations fight.
The only standard that matters is if the Democrats can round up the 218 votes in the House to pass articles of impeachment and the 67 votes necessary in the Senate to convict the President.
And President Trump will need help on multiple fronts.
Gowdy – who spearheaded the Benghazi Select Committee that unearthed Hillary Clinton’s private email server and who played a starring role in uncovering the Obama administration spying on the Trump campaign – can lend a helping hand in all of those areas.
