Former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy (R) has been “terminated” by Fox News after he agreed to join President Donald Trump’s fight against impeachment.
Sources confirmed on Tuesday that Gowdy, who is known for his investigation into the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, will represent Trump as outside counsel.
By Wednesday, Fox News had fired Gowdy.
A Fox News spokesperson says Trey Gowdy "has been terminated and is no longer a contributor."

But if Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani is any measure, Gowdy could get more airtime on Fox News even though he is no longer an employee.
This pro-Trump pastor is now praying for impeachment after watching Republicans ‘sell their souls to the devil’
A conservative Florida pastor says he has prayed for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
The outspoken and frequently controversial Rev. O’Neal Dozier voted for Trump in 2016 and thanked God for his victory during a GOP event shortly after the election, but he has turned on the president and the Republican Party, reported the Orlando Sun-Sentinel.
“The Republicans are selling their souls to the devil and disgracing themselves to maintain their seats in Congress,” Dozier wrote in the South Florida Times. "Many of these Republicans are confessed Christians, who are violating the tenets of their religion in the support of President Trump."
Trump faces a ‘personnel time bomb’ as his complicit officials get hauled before Congress: columnist
President Trump's prospects for a second term are threatened by two kinds of people: Those "who have either had enough of him or are being forced by subpoena to share what they’ve seen," according to a new Washington Post opinion piece by Paul Waldman.
Waldman writes that it isn't Trump's top administration officials who are threatening his presidency; it's the lesser known professionals who are "so distant from the Oval Office that Trump probably doesn’t even know they exist" -- one example being former US Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.
OANN anchor goes down in flames for reporting Christopher Columbus saved natives with Christianity
One America News Network anchor Liz Wheeler took on history this week when she suggested that Christopher Columbus actually ended atrocities against Native Americans by bringing Christianity to America.
In a series of eye-popping tweets on Monday, Wheeler decided to celebrate Columbus Day by whitewashing the explorer's legacy.
"Christopher Columbus didn't commit genocide," she wrote. "Within 200 years of Columbus's arrival, 95% of the 20M Native Americans died... from disease. Smallpox, flu, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, measles, cholera."
"Tragic, definitely. But mass murder by Columbus? Not even close," Wheeler added.
