It’s all hands on deck for Donald Trump and the Republican Party as the impeachment witch hunt reaches the end game.
The President is counting on every Republican to stand their ground against Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi’s anti-American coup.
But then Trey Gowdy went on Fox News and gave Donald Trump the one answer on impeachment he did not want to hear.
For a brief period this fall, it looked like Trey Gowdy was all set to join Donald Trump’s defense team.
Impeachment is really a fight in the court of public opinion and Gowdy planned on assuming the role of the public face of the President’s legal defense to make the case on television to the American people that the Democrats’ impeachment crusade was a partisan sham and hoax.
But Congressional lobbying rules prevented recently retired members of Congress – Gowdy officially left Congress in January – from taking up any type of lobbying role without a “cooling off” period.
That meant Gowdy couldn’t do any legal work for the President until January which effectively scuttled Gowdy’s chances of working for the President.
With the calendar all set to turn to 2020 and there being a virtual certainty of a Senate impeachment trial in January, Fox News host Martha MacCallum asked Trey Gowdy if he was ready to revisit joining the President’s Defense Team.
“I will have needed to start a long time ago,” Gowdy responded to MacCallum. “There are depositions to read and evidence to consider, witnesses to examine.”
Gowdy explained that there just wasn’t enough time for him to prepare for the case at this stage of the game.
“I was an average lawyer, but I did it for a long time, and I need to participate to be able to effectively represent someone,” Gowdy added. “You can’t do it starting on January 1 going into a trial on January 4. You just can’t do it.”
MacCallum’s question to Gowdy was based on speculation once again surfacing that Gowdy could join the President’s defense team once the legal hurdles disappeared.
Newsmax White House Correspondent John Gizzi exclusively reported:
“Should Giuliani leave the Trump legal team, several sources told Newsmax, he was likely to be replaced by former Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C. — someone President Trump wanted very much to hire in October until discovering Gowdy would have to wait until January to become his lawyer because of federal lobbying rules.”
Trump supporters were disappointed with this news.
During the Russian collusion hoax, Gowdy emerged as one of the President’s most able defenders.
Gowdy helped expose numerous Obama Deep State crimes surrounding the FBI abusing its power in spying on the Trump campaign using the fake news Christopher Steele dossier as the basis.
The President and his supporters were counting on Gowdy to make the case on TV and in public that the Democrats’ impeachment push was a baseless partisan attack to overturn the results of the 2016 election.
In turn, that campaign to maintain public opposition to impeaching and removing the President would keep Republican Senators in line and not vote to convict in any Senate trial.
