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

Published

on

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.

Now, it seems, he is all in for Trump — again.

A pandemic is spiraling out of control and Donald Trump's reaction is to roll his eyes and say, "It is what it is." Unsurprisingly, polling data shows that his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, is pulling ahead, not just in national polls, but in a number of battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida, none of which Trump can afford to lose. After all, the incumbent has nothing real to run on. The economy is the worst it's been since the Great Depression of the 1930s, Americans are losing health insurance by the millions, and Republicans are responding by trying to shortchange unemployment benefits for the millions of people who've lost their jobs.

Trump creates a ‘minefield’ of legal problems for his own staff with plan for White House acceptance speech: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he might deliver his Republican National Convention speech from the White House. But legal experts who spoke with Bloomberg warned that might not be a good idea.

The publication described the proposal as "a minefield of problems for the staff charged with putting such an event together."
