Ex-Benghazi crusader Trey Gowdy changes his mind -- will join Trump's anti-impeachment team after all

Source: Bloomberg News

Published 1 min ago on October 8, 2019
By Matthew Chapman


On Tuesday, Bloomberg News reported that former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who once chaired the House Oversight Committee and the Select Committee on Benghazi, will be joining President Donald Trump’s legal team to fight the impeachment inquiry.

Previous reports had suggested that Gowdy, who declined to run for re-election in 2018, had turned down the offer to join the White House’s anti-impeachment efforts.

Gowdy has been a front-line crusader in fighting for Republican causes in the House, working to turn “Benghazi” into a household name during the Obama years. At one point, he faced an ethics scandal for wrongfully firing an Air Force reservist who couldn’t find dirt on Hillary Clinton. Towards the end of his term in office, however, he appeared to be more critical of Trump, even pushing back on some of his conspiracy theories about the FBI investigation of Russia.

If they know whats good for them. Turn trump down? Fuhgetabout running for any office again. Fuhgettabout any honey dripping off the gop money tree in any business venture in the future. Congress is just a path to that tree. Lots of grift to go around, unless you step off the crazy train. Doesn't matter what you have done, only matters what you will do when asked.

It's the way they roll.

Gotta admire pure evil when you see it.

17. Missing the limelight?

Poor Trey, he’ll suck Trump’s cock just to get 5 more minutes of fame. It’s a shame Trump won’t even say “thanks for the blowjob” when he’s done with him. I don’t even think he’ll get a Kleenex.

21. He and Trump are two terrible people who deserve each other.

I don't predict that this appointment will last. If Trump drags him down - and he will - I, for one, will not feel an ounce of sympathy for him.

I remember quite a lot of failed investigations that this bozo chaired up. Should be funny to see him flail around with Trump's bullshit alibis.

32. He was successful as a prosecutor in South Carolina.

He can occasionally be seen on "Forensic Files" reruns. He seems sane in that role. This was quite a few years ago, though.

Though the trump team expects him to accept the offer.

43. He is one of the most despicable subhumans on the face of the earth.

His very existence is an insult to humanity. His evil face invokes uncontrolled vomiting at its sight. He is a being dredged out of the depths of depravity without a shred of decency. His mind is cesspool of maggot infestation. He is a Republican.
