Donald Trump just got some really bad news about Trey Gowdy

Donald Trump thrilled supporters when he announced that former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy would join his legal team to fend off the Democrats’ attempted coup.

But then the other shoe dropped.

And Donald Trump just got some really bad news about Trey Gowdy.

Trump Attorney Jay Sekulow previously announced Gowdy was joining the Trump team as a counsel to the President.

Gowdy was expected to appear on TV and fill Rudy Giuliani’s role as the public face of the Trump legal defense team.

But before the President departed for a campaign rally in Minnesota, Trump revealed that lobby rules and regulations for former members of Congress prevented Gowdy from coming aboard until January.

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Thursday said former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) can’t to join his outside legal team for a “couple months” because of lobbying rules one day after it was announced that Gowdy would serve as his counsel.

“Trey Gowdy is a terrific guy,” Trump told reporters outside the White House as he departed for a campaign rally.

“I think there’s a problem with — he can’t start for another couple months because of lobbying rules and regulations,” he added. “So you’ll have to ask about that. I just heard that Trey Gowdy can’t start til some time after January because of the lobbying rules and regulations. So I don’t know. We’ll have to see.”

Trump’s lead personal attorney, Jay Sekulow, said Wednesday night that Gowdy would serve as counsel to the resident in response to the House’s impeachment inquiry.

Since Democrats plan to rush impeachment through by the New Year, this means Gowdy will never join the President’s defense team.

Many Trump supporters consider this to be a significant blow to the efforts to beat back the Democrats’ coup attempt.

    Trey Gowdys is A good man honest , it’s just what the demoncrates aren’t. Secret closed door meeting’s , it shows how hateful Disloyal disturbed your party is , you can keep it to yourself. Republicans don’t include demoncrates in your houses. Take that ! Their dishonesty is their downfall , enjoy the low road it hell !

  2. No, Democrats love America But only for themselves not for others Like Obama likes capitalism only for himself Not for others

  3. Trey Gowdy didn’t do nothing about Benghazi and It was a long time So, Trey Gowdy cannot pull the hair from wet

    • gandolf the White says:

      What did Gowdy have to do with Benghazi?

    • Peter Gaskin says:

      How was he going to get anything done about corrupt politicians when the Obama justice department and the FBI CIA NSA
      were covering up democrats crimes everything to classified for the committee apparently Hillary Clinton private email server used for federal government buisness she should be in jail if it was a republican they would have been jailed

  4. Jimbosidecar says:

    I know I’m going against the majority opinion but Trey Gowdy does not impress me one bit. Had he been a good prosecutor hillary would be behind bars right now. There was plenty of evidence she was doing something illegal in Libya, not just Benghazi. And Trey, for all his talk, never closed the deal. She got off scot-free. I think he was mesmerized by the bright lights and cameras and forgot what his job was. Plus after failing miserably, he ended up giving the dumbassocrats plenty of ammunition in defending hillary as a victim who was persecuted by the republicans. Just more D.C. incompetence. As much as I can’t stomach Chris Christie, I do thenk had bhe been in charge of the Benghazi hearings there would have been a much different outcome.

  5. Bill says:

    As I have previously written, I don’t think the Democrats will impeach the president. But, I will add a caveat to that statement. I don’t think the Democrats will impeach the president if the process is held openly. Right now the Democrats refuse to hold a vote to bring impeachment charges. Why? I can think of only one reason and that reason is the Speaker and those Committee chairmen know they will not have enough votes to impeach if members have to go on record. But, there is an additional factor in this entire ugly mess that must be understood.

    I have come to the conclusion that the Democrats have no intention of actually impeaching the President because they know the haven’t a leg to stand on. What they are doing is nothing more than a dog-and-pony show trying to convince sane people that the President is the devil incarnate and they should elect Democrats in the 2020 elections. They are aware that when the economy is doing well people are reluctant to change horses in the middle of the stream. In other words, many of these Democrats might have to actually find a job following the elections.

    • i believe that is senseless reason to deny President Trump another term, However the Liberal attitudes only seem to satisfy their own means, not the American desire to make our Country better!

    • Hiram says:

      They will not impeach him because that will open a very dangerous prove for them. If the senate take the impeachment case they will probably going to seat Obama, Biden, Comey, Rosestain, Brennan, Clapper and many others under oath. Figure out what is going to come out.

    • gandolf the White says:

      The Demwits can’t impeach Trump. The Senate would vote against it.

  6. l says:

    Most of posting negative comments are more than likely trolls employed by the democratic party and should just be ignored!

    But before the President departed for a campaign rally in Minnesota, Trump revealed that lobby rules and regulations for former members of Congress prevented Gowdy from coming aboard until January.

    Well October is almost done. we got November, December. and then BOOM Tray Gowdy on Board! Yeah!

    • I concur with your comment Joz, rules and regulations mean nothing to the DEMORATS. I believe that Trey should represent President Trump, he is great, I watched him put dirty crooked Hilary down, and he knows the law, and a great investigator, an astounding mind, January is too long to wait, Trey has to represent President Trump immediately, in order to put an end to this dirty mess. GO TREY. TRUMP 2020.

  8. Mohammed, Mohammed... says:

    Dems don’t care about no stinkin rules!

  9. Charles says:

    I fail to see what lobbying rules have to do with being an attorney and representing a client. The lobbying rules are to prevent influencing legislation. Not providing legal representation.

    • iris says:

      Thats why dems and deep state had this done. Should not advertisrd it. Krep. Things quiet not advertise. Dems are devils and corrpupt. Will do anything. Even lie lie. To stop what they cant stop

      • DEM777 says:

        I agree.

        iris, you can call Dems devils but when I was on Renewed Rights, I posted two times and my posts was never posted.

        I said that Liberal Democrats have been destroying America for Decades.

        And that their Fruits are coming to Bloom of evilness.

        Liberal Democrats said for decades that they LOVE, CARE, for people but all I see is HATE in them.

        Also that Democratic Party kicked out God when Obama came into power.

        That is what I said in so many words.

        Wonderful if others on this site goes to Renewed Rights.com

        • DEM777 says:

          Meant to say WONDER IF OTHERS ON THIS SITE GOES TO RENEWED RIGHTS.COM

          Take care iris.

          • Patsy Autry says:

            DEM777Can’t tell if you are for Democrats or not…But, our comments are screened and monitored…sometime not even posted. I have complained about that. Have made comments re: Crooked Hillary and they are never posted. I totally resent having my comments monitored. That is not fair. The Democrats are a group of HATE Filled, lying, irresponsible Liberals…tell me if I am wrong !!!

  10. Rodney says:

    Come on, it’s the Dimwits. They can’t do anything in a timely fashion. Trey is a bulldog who once he gets his teeth into something, he won’t let go.

    • Richard Crooks says:

      Of course he won’t let go he gets paid and the longer he drags thing out the more money he makes. How long did he try to hang Clinton and came up with nothing, he is just scum like all of the low life in WASHINGTON NOW.

      • mike dar says:

        He may be scum, he may be a leaker, but the delay was on the Agencies refusing documentation release(Deep State) and Sessions as DOJ head ect ect. Rinos in Congress were of little help either… remember some 40 Reps strangely retired in the 2018s.. never adequately explained.. where as incumbency should have had them keep at least 1/2 of 40 or much higher. Were the 40 convinced they were going to lose if running by media?,,,, or blackmailed?
        Congress is about investigation, not criminal prosecution which falls to the 3rd Branch the Executive so how much assistance did the ‘3rd’ provide to the 1st/Congress?

      • dennis says:

        so so sad your DOG lost so now you have only the pouting left in your miserable life.

    • Joz Lee says:

      Now Now we can’t be or do what Dimwits DumboKKKrats do or don’t do. So let’s play by the rules, laws, regulations. That’s what we stand for!

  11. Will Triebel says:

    Gowdy might still get his chance, as if enough people are still so stupid as to put Democrats back in the House, they will spend another 4 years pursuing their impeachment fantasies.

  12. Debra Lambert says:

    All Dems Hate America sold us out open boarders trafficking children drugs kill babies.Ohmar was in involved with Antifia Thur in Minnesota at Trump’s rally They are trying to over throw our country. Cair towel head illegally here sucking tax payers dry.Get rid of all Dems &any Rino’s.

    • reconviper1 says:

      I agree.

    • David Lawlor says:

      Well said Debra Lambert. I agree and believe that President Trump has done more for our country since the late President Reagan was in office. For one thing people like Nancy Pelosi should retire and that goes for Chuck Shumer too. There was a time I would vote for Democrat’s, but no more and my wife feels the same as me. For us and many of our family and friends all say the same and that is they like us will vote for President Trump for a second 4 yrs we hope, and that the people like us will do the same. We believe that President Trump has made America Great Again like he said he would. God bless President Trump along with his wife and family and all those that work under him too.

      • David says:

        Well said. SERIOUSLY though… I ask EVERYONE…Do you really believe America would have been better off with Sleepy ???? Hilarity Clinton as President? She would be a Yes Dear Lady and we would be cow towing to the Squad and all foreign leaders. Yes Dear, It’s Ok Dear, Whatever you want dear. They would be secretly tearing our country down, depressing the economy further, and not get anything done. Except for Allowing her and her close family friends , Like say it ain’t so Joe, family’s to continue to make their families rich and lie and abuse their power as political figures.
        I ask for All Democrats to please look at your neighbors as fellow human beings and dig deep into your heart and soul and MAN/WOMAN UP and do what is Right for ALL AMERICANS , not do just what your party is doing. Democrats need to step up and tell ANTIFA that violence is NOT acceptable and to stop accepting violent money to buy them for these types of criminal performances.
        Perhaps we should be get back to preaching to the world to stop All Wars, and work towards PEACE. And YES the rich need to start sharing…FOR WHAT can THEY do with Millions/Billions of dollars … that they can’t do with Thousands? Other than look at it and count it ?!? Why not make your MONEY count , instead of you counting it. ?
        I could go on and on… but I think most AMERICANS understand how important it is to come together and fight for AMERICA as AMERICANS. For what have we got, if not our selves and our neighbors, then we have not.
        God Bless is All and please Love thy neighbors and do unto them as you would have them do unto you, and then maybe your neighbors will get it to.
        ✌️ Peace to All.

        • Will Triebel says:

          David, you just make too much sense. I have, actually, been relieved that Hillary lost, since reading some of her emails on Wikileaks, am convinced that she would have had us in a nuclear war with Russia. Found out that in 2016, when everyone thought she would win, Moscow was refurbishing their old fallout shelters and having evacuation drills.
          I agree we should stop meddling in other countries, especially those that have been fighting one another for thousands of years, dragging our own troops into their wars do nothing to stop them. But work for peace as much as possible.
          And an interesting thing I found out about sharing, since I started making enough on startup investments to help others in the community, is that the more I give, the better I do. And seeing
          the families, the kids, happy and doing better, gives me a sense of gratitude that no amount of counting the money could even compare to. Though I disagree with the idea of government forcing the issue, I do believe that if many of the wealthy could be convinced to try using some of their wealth to help those that are struggling, they might come to understand that just having money is not what it’s about, but what one does with it that matters.

  13. Randall clark says:

    Doesn’t matter if Trey Gowdy has to wait until January! He will be a PLUS to the PRESIDENT’S TEAM!!

  14. Debra Lambert says:

    Keep Rudy. I don’t trust Gowdy Why did he resign along with Paul Ryan.I think Trey is compromised…Rudy tells it like it is. Gowdy prasied Muller

    • Joseph Kalcso says:

      I agree with you Gowdy cannot be trusted. He speaks a good game but does nothing. He won’t last because Trump will soon see right through it.

      • reconviper1 says:

        I believe the demonrats had something they were holding over Gowdy. Trump has the power of pardon, though. Like he did with Lindsey Graham. McCain had Graham in his hip pocket. After he was found guilty of treason by military tribunal and allowed to “suicide” in lieu of a public trial, McCain’s hold on Graham was broken and Trump gave him a pardon. Now he works on the side of light instead of the Satanic deep state, New World Order crowd.

        • Isabel says:

          What a bunch of crap you have just uttered! I despise anything McCain and hope he is roasting in hell, but he was not killed or “made” to suicide!

    • 2004done says:

      Debra Lambert: The “All bark, no bite; All talk, no action; All hat, no cattle” phrases don’t just refer to we keyboard-commandos. I have a high regard (not acceptance) for effectiveness of Democrat Party’s (both adherent and opponent) control mechanisms.

    • Iris says:

      No way! Gowdy has to much respect for the law. He will work to stop the demos because he knows if he doesn’t help, the criminals will win. The dems are a wicked bunch of criminals that broke every law they could. Money is their God, greed and money! The law has nothing to do with them.

      • Lu says:

        Trey Gowdy is a man all his own! I highly respect him because he speaks the truth and will stand up to speak the truth. Trey Gowdy was not a one man show in Washington and could actually get nothing done against Hillary Clinton because the likes of Comey was there. I truly believe that he shenanigans going on behind closed doors in Washington is exactly why Trey Gowdy left. He will be a very strong asset as an attorney for President Trump. I am so very tired of the Democrats doing absolutely nothing for the people but, instead, solely working to discredit what has been and is a terrific president. I do not like some of the things that President Trump does in regards to his mannerisms but he does stand up for America and for Christian values that I believe in so deeply. I WILL DEFINITELY VOTE REPUBLICAN AND NEVER FOR A DEMOCRAT. However, the question her is Trey Gowdy and I say that he would be a terrific asset along with Jay Sekulow whom I also admire as a truthful person!!!

    • Michael A. Gilliam says:

      For you to compare Trey Gowdy to Paul Ryan shows that you have absolutely no idea who Trey Gowdy is.

    • Rich Tucci says:

      I agree. Unfortunately a lot of Republicans praised Mueller, which I find incredibly disturbing. In fact, only Rep. Louie Gohmert, R- Tex. had the right take on Mueller, one that was quite obvious. I think that the reason the Democrats praised because, 1. They thought he would be inspired to get Trump at all costs out of revenge for President Trump firing the person that Mueller groomed to be successor as the FBI direct. Not to mention, Mueller was kicked off of Trump’s private championship golf courses in Virginia for non-payment of membership’s dues, purportedly around $90,000. Mueller’s arrogance thought he should be free, unlimited membership because of his status at the time of being the Director of the FBI Director. That’s part of the reason Mueller made himself look like a foolish partisan hack, and certainly not deserving of the phony mask of a reputation that he carries around. I would love to know how this reputation of being a supposed fair-minded, non-partisan investigator who only cares about the law and the truth, which Mueller’s is anything but ! He’s directly responsible for innocent people being falsely incarcerated and their deaths while waiting for their exoneration, which eventually came after they died. For this alone, Mueller himself should have been disbarred and put in jail.

    President Trump needs principled determined “bulldogs” on his team to confront the illegal “testimony” the House Democrats are doing. They are not only violating the law but also the traditions of the House.

        Abuse of power and malicious prosecution for starters. Then we can move on to perjury, espionage, and manufacturing false evidence. Then we have the grand daddy of them all, treason. Trying to remove a duly elected President by any means necessary including fraud constitutes treason.

      So please give me a list of items that President Trump has done that would make him a criminal? Yes he is very out spoken, but that does not make him a criminal. So give me your list. If you do not have one, then it is best that you do not post as you are irresponsible as the left liberal media is. They always say they have 10 ways from Sunday to convict him of crimes, but not one of them has posted a crime or even charge him with any criminal act. They say that he obstructed the law from being done. So give me a list of laws that he has obstructed from being completed. We are waiting. We have plenty of time. We waited over 2 years and nothing, not one crime has been charge against him. Nor was Mueller able to bring obstruction charges against him. Why because while he was truly pissed off at how the Mueller investigation took place, he never stopped it from happening. That would have been obstruction, but Robert Mueller was able to complete his investigation they way he wanted to and under his terms. As out spoke as the President was nothing he said or did obstructed Mueller from completing his assignment.
