The White House is reportedly in serious discussions with former Congressman and current Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy to take on the role of outside counsel to lead President Donald Trump’s fight against impeachment by House Democrats.

According to Bloomberg News’ Jennifer Jacobs and other reports, members of the president’s inner circle have been considering bringing in Gowdy for several weeks and, after a request by Trump, Gowdy has agreed.

“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.”
