Trey Gowdy is retiring and he’s going back to private practice. The Washington Examiner reports:
Rep. Trey Gowdy will reportedly rejoin his old law firm in South Carolina after he leaves Congress next week.
The Republican leader will return to Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough as a white-collar defense attorney, sources told the Post and Courier.
The outlet reported that upon asking him about it last week, he only shrugged and smiled, neglecting to confirm or deny the scoop. That was after he hinted on Fox News that he planned to work for a firm with whom he had some “history.”
A spokesperson for Gowdy did not immediately return the Washington Examiner‘s request for comment, and neither did Nelson Mullins.
Gowdy could always come back as a political appointment in the Trump administration, but for now, his political career is over.
