Breaking: Fox News Fires Trey Gowdy

Published

on

Fox News announced Wednesday that the former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy has been “terminated” by the network.

Gowdy’s firing comes after he reportedly agreed to help the White House fight a Democrat led impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. Fox originally hired the former representative as an on-air contributor back in January.

“Trey Gowdy has been terminated and is no longer a contributor,” a Fox News spokesperson told the Hollywood Reporter.

The former South Carolina representative rose to fame as chairman of the House oversight committee. During his tenure, he led investigations into the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks in Libya, and supported other inquiries into former Secretary of State 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.

A version of this story appears on the Daily Caller website.

  • VietnamVeteran says:

    Too bad about Trey Gowdy. The liberal fascists are at it again – now on Fox. Very, very disappointing.

    BTW – why doesn’t some nice, conservative entrepreneur start a conservative based Facebook and a conservative based Twitter ? I’m sick of the Facebook and Twitter fascists promoting liberal garbage and suspending conservatives and conservative opinions because of some violation of “community standards” – meaning, of course, leftist – socialist – communist – demorat standards. This goes for all the other liberal web sites also – all tyrannical and vicious and totally disgusting. 😜

  • FRANK says:

    Gowdy was the best and Fox only lost some of it’s credibility firing him. Would love to have him as our president.

  • Kevin Barry says:

    Why didn’t they just let him resign ?

  • nana says:

    Ever since the owner of Fox News passed away leaving the network to his two sons , the sons have been leaning to the left every since. They have hired Democratic people like Donna Basil for one

  • Sipriana R Rosales says:

    Most of programming of Fox news reports the facts, Shepard Smith was the only one biased against trump that I could see. Juan Williams and Chris Hahn should work at msbn or CNN and Trey Howdy is an honorable man and the powers at Fox news made a bad mistake in firing him!

  • Mary says:

    I will take Trey Gowdy’s honesty and integrity above any “head” at Fox News. What a stupid mistake for the sake of politics…better get those lefty “wives” from behind the scenes. Enough said.
