Trey Gowdy, former chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee and an attorney at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP, was confirmed by an anonymous official to be joining Trump’s legal team as outside legal counsel.
In the ever-expanding impeachment inquiry Dems launched last month, Gowdy has decided to join Trump in combating it. The White House also came out with a letter to Congress on Tuesday, calling the investigation “illegal” and that the inquiry itself “violates fundamental fairness and constitutionally mandated due process and lacks any legitimate constitutional foundation.”
Perhaps a bad timing for the letter in many’s eyes, as it arrived on the same day that Gordon Sondland, U.S. European Union Ambassador, was blocked from testifying by the administration.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who initiated the impeachment inquiry stated:
“The White House should be warned that continued efforts to hide the truth of the President’s abuse of power from the American people will be regarded as further evidence of obstruction. Mr. President, you are not above the law. You will be held accountable.”
