Gowdy is a star: a logical, ethical, no-nonsense man. He commands a magical use of words and a great sense of humor.
Former GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy — once an advocate of Congress’s oversight powers — has been tapped to join President Donald Trump’s personal legal team in its fight against the House impeachment inquiry.
