President Donald Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow confirmed tonight that former Rep. Trey Gowdy will join the President's legal team.
In a statement, Sekulow said Gowdy will be "a great asset as a member of our team.”
“I am pleased to announce that former Congressman Trey Gowdy is joining our team as Counsel to the President. I have known Trey for years and worked with him when he served in Congress. His legal skills and his advocacy will serve the President well. Trey’s command of the law is well known and his service on Capitol Hill will be a great asset as a member of our team," he said in the statement.
More recently, Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor, was a Fox contributor. A network spokesperson said in a short statement today that Gowdy was "terminated and is no longer a contributor" to Fox.
Gowdy was hired as a Fox contributor in January, providing political and legal analysis across all the company's platforms.
