Former Rep. Trey Gowdy has agreed to a request from the White House to assist President Trump as the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry moves forward.
Though initial reports claimed that Gowdy had declined an invite from the White House to participate in the president’s defense, the former GOP representative of South Carolina is now on board to assist, according to Law & Crime.
The article goes on to state the following:
Gowdy was approached by the White House this week as potential legal counsel for Trump as he prepares to fight against an impeachment investigation stemming from a July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, according to a report from CNN. Though Gowdy is an accomplished attorney, the nature of his involvement in Trump’s fight against impeachment is not immediately clear.
Washington Post reporter Josh Dawsey tweeted Tuesday:
“Confirmed, per a senior White House official, who says Trump has blessed the move. Trey Gowdy is on the Trump team.”

NEWS: Trump advisers since late Sept. have weighed the idea of asking former US Rep Trey Gowdy to provide impeachment strategy.
Trump warmed to the suggestion and asked @TGowdySC to be part of team.
Gowdy said yes.
He’ll work from *outside* the White House, sources tell me.
