Trump Picks Trey Gowdy to Help in Impeachment Fight

President Trump has picked former U.S. Congressman Trey Gowdy to help him fight the Democrat’s impeachment efforts.

According to Town Hall:

The Associated Press reports that retired South Carolina Congressman and former Chairman of the Oversight Committee Trey Gowdy has been asked to serve on President Donald J. Trump’s legal counsel to deal with the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into the president’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky from this past July. Democrats assert that President Trump offered a quid pro quo to Ukraine, offering military aid in exchange for investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s business dealings.

An administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity told the AP on Tuesday night that Gowdy has agreed to join the Trump legal team. Earlier reports stated that Gowdy had rejected an offer, but further reporting verified this was not true.

The story comes as President Trump sent Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi an eight page letter explaining why the White House will not cooperate with the impeachment inquiry. Matt covered the pertinent details Tuesday night:

The letter is eight pages and outlines why this impeachment inquiry is a total circus. House Democrats executed this impeachment push based off of a July phone call Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, where it was alleged in a whistleblower report that Trump had threatened to withhold military aid unless Zelensky opened a corruption probe into Hunter Biden. The transcript refuted all of that; there is no quid pro quo. The report is based on second-hand accounts. This person, who is reportedly a CIA agent and registered Democrat, never listened in on the call. They also worked with a 2020 candidate. Need I say more about the shoddiness of this attempt? It’s a witch hunt that is fueled by Trump Derangement Syndrome of the most extreme sort.

Gowdy has been a polarizing figure over the past couple of years, but it is clear now that he is on the Trump team.

Gowdy is an establishment republican that punted on the “investigation” into Obama’s & Hillary’s Benghazi scandal that got 4 Americans killed running weapons to terrorists. He is NOT to be trusted, Trump, once again, makes a poor choice.

I agree with his pick! I am sure he has much knowledge of what Joe Biden was involved with since he was on the Oversight Committee!

Some of you don’t know Gowdy. He’s not really “establishment.” He’s very calculated with what he can win, so sometimes comes off as reticent to do stuff. But he’s brilliant and can explain complex things very simply in a way that makes an impact. Trump needs that now for the public.
