Report: Trey Gowdy In Talks To Join Trump’s Legal Team For Impeachment Inquiry Fight

Former federal prosecutor and South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy is reportedly in talks to join President Trump’s legal defense team in their fight against an impeachment inquiry.

BizPac Review reports Gowdy would be hired for his efforts as an outside counsel, although neither party has formalized a decision. According to the report, it is being misreported that Gowdy has already been hired.

According to the report, since Gowdy retired from Congress, he has served as a Fox News contributor and joined the law firm Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP.

“Gowdy’s experience and knowledge of House proceedings would be an asset to the Trump team as they ready for what is likely to be a drawn-out battle with Democrats bent on impeaching the president,” the report adds.

And, per BizPac Review:

The 55-year-old former federal prosecutor served as the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee as well as leading the House Select Committee on Benghazi. During that investigation of the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, Gowdy grilled Obama administration officials including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

If Gowdy does, in fact, come on board, it would be at a time that the White House is doubling down on its stand against Democrats, sending a letter Tuesday to three committee leaders and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stating that it would not be complying with requests related to the impeachment inquiry.
