This is more proof on why everything Trump has said about them is true…
Fox News reported on Wednesday that the network had “terminated” the former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy.
The dismissal of Gowdy came after he reportedly agreed to help the White House battle a Democrat-led probe into the impeachment of President Donald Trump. The former representative was originally hired by Fox as an on-air host back in January.
“Trey Gowdy has been terminated and is no longer a contributor,” a Fox News spokesperson told the Hollywood Reporter.

As chairman of the House oversight committee, the former representative from South Carolina rose to fame. He led investigations into the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks in Libya during his term and endorsed additional hearings into former State Secretary Hillary Clinton.
Gowdy decided to not run for reelection in the 2018 midterms after serving 8 years in the House.
“Whatever skills I may have are better utilized in a courtroom than in Congress, and I enjoy our justice system more than our political system,” Gowdy said before the 2018 midterm elections, according to Bloomberg.
