Trump's attempt to hire Trey Gowdy for legal team unravels over lobbying rules

President Trumpís attempt to hire former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy for his legal team as he battles House Democrats over impeachment has unraveled over concerns about lobbying rules restricting his activities, Fox News has confirmed.

Last week, it was announced that Gowdy would be joining the presidentís legal team. But a source familiar with the situation told Fox News there was concern about a statute that says former lawmakers cannot communicate with or appear before their former colleagues for a year after leaving Congress.

Gowdy retired from Congress earlier this year, meaning his one-year restriction would be up in January 2020.

As part of his role with Trumpís legal team, Gowdy was expected to appear on television news programs ó and there were concerns about whether that could be considered communicating with former colleagues in violation of the statute. A source said the presidentís legal team needed Gowdy on television making the case now, and not in several months.
