Reports have been flying for much of the week, that former prosecutor and US Representative Trey Gowdy is joining President Donald Trump’s legal team. And it appears there are mixed emotions on both party sides about his newly recognized help.

For the most part, Republicans are excited about the move and feel it is definitely a good thing for the Trump impeachment defense team. Gowdy has a long and stable reputation of being able to hold his own in the courtroom, and as such, has been given the nickname “The Bulldog.”

During the Obama administration, Gowdy held a significant role in investigating then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her part in a 2012 terrorist attack that took place on a US diplomatic base in Benghazi, Libya, where four Americans were killed, including the US ambassador to Libya.

And since his time in the House of Representatives, Gowdy has not been afraid of picking fights with leading Democrats he believes are in the wrong, such as House Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Adam Schiff. More than once, the former prosecutor has put Schiff in his place and called us to question the left’s motives. Gowdy’s hard-nose approach in and out of the courtroom has earned him a reputation that many have come to respect.

However, not all are convinced this a good thing for Trump. While he has been successful in a great many instances during his career, Gowdy’s participation, no matter how bull-doggish it seemed, in the Clinton trials of 2012 did little to change the outcome. This has led some conservatives to wonder if he would really be up to the task and be able to pull off a win for Trump.

And these hesitant conservatives are not the only ones who think so.

Many on the left don’t think he can handle it either.

The subject of Gowdy was discussed on “The View” on Wednesday, where most of the hosts and the audience seemed to think it was a laughable idea. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg played a clip of the 2012 Benghazi hearings for the audience, which showed Gowdy ripping into Obama’s White House for not releasing documents subpoenaed by the court.

The crowd, as well as most of the hosts,  laughed at the clip. But one co-host, Meghan McCain did not. And then she responded by questioning their laughter. She said, “I’m confused why everyone is laughing because my take on it is that they have been having closed hearings, and don’t we want as much transparency as possible?”

Her co-hosts explained they thought it was funny because Gowdy once took a stand against an administration that was withholding evidence, and as far as the left is concerned, Trump is doing the same thing by refusing to take part in the impeachment hearings. They told McCain it was hypocritical of Gowdy, meaning he couldn’t possibly be a real threat.

However, like any person in their right mind, McCain was less than convinced. She responded, “You can go on abut Trey Gowdy, but he’s one of the great congressmen. He’s someone I have respected for years. You can laugh all you want, but the fact he’s joining Trump’s team is good news for Trump and bad news for Democrats.”

He co-hosts then began spouting off all the times Trump has supposedly withheld evidence or not given his full cooperation. But McCain must have taken a conservative pill that morning because she jumped back in, saying “Democrats also aren’t bringing things into the light of day.”

And she continued, “I want to see congressional testimonies, which, by the way, it is unprecedented that there is not confidential information that has been told in these hearings with Kurt Volker. I believe the American public – it should be live on TV, and we should hear what they have to say. It seems like Democrats don’t want me to know what they’re saying.”

“People in the text messages, Giuliani and Kurt Volker, I would like to see what they have to say. Maybe it isn’t as damning as what Democrats are saying.”

An excellent point. Why would Dems want to hide the supposedly wicked things Trump has done?

McCain ended by saying that if she were “in a fox hole, I would want Trey Gowdy in there with me.”

As would many. Gowdy is a fighter and one that has proved diligent. Anyone should be considered lucky to have him in their corner.

  1. to be critical of Gowdy as to the Clinton hearings. As he said over and over, the charges have to come from the (corrupt) justice department, and they were fully on board to cover her ass.

    what did come out is clear, she is a criminal, short and sweet, and belongs in jail, and would be,save for Justice Dept corruption.

  2. Trey Gowdy is great at asking the tough questions. He is also great at recognizing individuals who are trying to wordsmith answers that have a bias take.

  3. Gowdy is an ethical bulldog! I think it’s presumptuous to call him a hypocrite when he hasn’t even started his tenor as Trump’s legal counsel. I believe Gowdy will persist that those requests by Congress are honored for the sake of transparency when he has made the fight for total transparency of both sides. He does believe in transparency but not just for one side of the isle but for both sides. If the American people are free from political cherry pickers on both sides, they will know the truth. Once the Democrats in the House open these hearings to the public and allow Republicans to take part in this inquiry, then the inquiry will be official making the White House honor all congressional request without delay. This was done in the Mueller investigation (at the request of Democrats) and it should be done here also.

  4. I love Trey Gowdy and I am so excited to see him President Trump’s team. He has earned the name bulldog and I think he will live up to that name and then some..
    And I think but Meghan McCain has said but the Democrats being in trouble they better take heed.

  5. Megan is spot-on about Gowdy. Dems won’t sleep well and they should not. This man will make Schiff look like a dunce.

  6. Are you kidding me! Trey Gowdy will tear you a new asshole! And you say he wasn’t effective in the Benghazi hearings. He did everything he could against a super obstructionist Obama administration. What more could the man do!!!! He’s an ex-Marine…what did you want him to do? …throw hands and flip over tables.
    He should scare the living shit out of the liberals!!!

  7. And to use the View as an example. The most retarded Squad in country.
    Dumb…Dumber…and Dumbiest!!! Only someone with the IQ of an eggplant would watch these fucking morons!

  8. Gowdy was one of the very few effective prosecutors of the case against Clinton and in normal times in America we would still have a free press instead of a propaganda machine for the Democratic party. Instead the deck is stacked against the truth because these dirt-bag politicians protect each other and we really do have a double standard of justice. Therefore, instead of sitting in a Federal Prison for violating the Espionage Act, we have Mrs. Clinton whining about being cheated out of the Oval Office and threatening to run again, (because we all know she WON the last election!)

  9. TV show The View should be renamed: OUR VIEW. W/the exception of Ms. McCain, these females are angry, mean, bitter, hateful, narrow-minded, and to a degree ignorant. They lash out based on hearsay rhetoric; don’t do research to find the truth about anything, and quite frankly it appears they have nothing of interest to talk about so they jump on the Demoncrat soapbox and parrot what they’ve “been told!”
    It’s a disgusting show, and most pitiful to hear applause from the pitifully education/intelligence—challenged

  10. I am not always in agreement with Megan McCain but I believe she alone is pitted against those pit bulls on The View, a show that is a total waste of time.

  11. Trey is intelligent, well researched, focused on the target and ruthless!
    Plus he has lotsa experience!!!
    Great choice from the President!

  12. Trey Gowdy in my opinion is the peson who is most hone and tusted by the american People. Tray Gowdy I feel canbe 100% trusted he is honest to a falt and most improtantlt HE DOES the law ans what he is talking about. In my opinion only 2-4% of those who challenge Gowdy could face him an challenge Trey. I”ll bet they would lose if they tried. He i a blessing, Trey that is Hank Bried

  13. All normal Americans want the Whole truth in the open . In a honest open Process. Legal impeachment would fail in the open daylight. Power has positively corrupted many lobbyist, elected members of Congress.
    Press , and broadcast follows liberal opinion YOU DO AS I SAY I’LL
    Can’t believe You if you will not be Open Same Rights for every body.
    As a soldier I was willing to die for our Freedom. Stop Stealing Them!

  14. It doesn’t get any better in the legal realm or legal issues in the United States of America than Trey Gowdy. Although he is retired, when political & legal matters that no one else can win/handle, he comes out of retirement to handle the legal issues/cases or give instructions to legal experts; he’s right all the time. He’s as God-Send to Americans. Phyllis Brown

  15. Let the Demonrats leftist liberals laugh all they want. Trump & Repubs will have last laugh when Gowdy tear them a new butthole and Barrs investigation comes to light on Oct 18th. Bad news for them.

  16. Well she should be a good judge of people who are bad news. She grew up with John McCain. They don’t get any more bad news than that. Totally untrustworthy.

  17. Why in the world would any Democrat want someone of integrity?? That would go against everything they stand for.
    They could not shine Trey Gowdy’s shoes let alone be able to distinguish between fact or LIES.. They are not only an embarrassment to themselves but to all of us that use to call ourselves Democrats. These aren’t Democrats. I really don’t know what they are. What a disgrace!!

  18. Trey Gowdy is the best. He’s smart and he’s a fighter
    and he has President Trump’s back. He’s one person I would want to have on my side, and he won’t take any crap from the damned Dems.

  19. Today, with the fast way of life that everyone is having, credit cards get this amazing demand throughout the economy. Persons throughout every field are using the credit card and people who not using the card have prepared to apply for one. Thanks for giving your ideas about credit cards.
