Trey Gowdy gave one answer about impeachment that Trump couldn’t believe
Donald Trump is for all the help he can get as the Democrats stage an impeachment witch hunt.
The President thought he could count on former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy.
And Trey Gowdy gave one answer about impeachment that Trump couldn’t believe.
In recent weeks, rumors swirled that Trey Gowdy would join Donald Trump’s legal team to help with the public relations battle over impeachment.
But then, Gowdy said rules governing lobbying efforts by former members of Congress would prevent him from joining the President’s legal team until January.
That rendered Gowdy’s status up in the air.
In an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan pressed Gowdy to clarify if he would be representing the President.
Gowdy simply said he had “no idea.”
Former Rep. Trey Gowdy on Sunday said he has “no idea” if he would ever join President Donald Trump’s legal team, despite Trump saying the South Carolina Republican would be free to do so next year.
Gowdy was first floated earlier this month as a new outside lawyer to help the president fight impeachment — an announcement that Trump quickly walked back, citing “lobbying rules and regulations.”
In an appearance on CBS on Sunday, Gowdy cast doubt on whether he would ever represent the president.
“I have no idea,” he said on “Face the Nation.“ “I don’t represent the president as of today. I don’t know what if anything will exist in January. It may be over.”
Democrats are racing against time to wrap up their impeachment inquiry before the calendar turns to 2020 and the Presidential race takes over.
But there is no guarantee they will be able to stick to that timeline.
Gowdy is expected to be the “TV lawyer” for Donald Trump.
A Senate trial on articles of impeachment is expected to take weeks.
A lawyer with Gowdy’s political and communication skills will serve the President well to rally the public to come to the conclusion that the articles of impeachment the Democrats draw up to remove the President from office are a scam.
