At the time he stated, “Respect for the rule of law must mean something, irrespective of the vicissitudes of political cycles.”Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for Trump, praised Gowdy in a statement announcing his hiring: “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.”A House Democratic aide said Gowdy would be under pressure from Democrats to square his prior aggressive assertion of congressional prerogatives with Trump’s stonewalling of the impeachment inquiry.
