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

I really think Rush should get a group together and buy CNN. Make it the Conservative News Network.
I never heard Fox hosts use the terminate word.
Why would they use the word terminated instead of “ended its contract with”? Seems unreasonably combative.
I suspect that Gowdy Quit because of a fear of conflict of interest.
“Terminated” is the common term in business these days for almost any separation regardless of cause. The term bugged me a lot, too. But it’s commonly understood these days and non-pejorative.
The Daily Caller used the term.
Hope he gets credit for taking a hit to help Trump...
I'd buy stock.. and, so would 95% of my friends.
Rush? Find a way to monetize public participation... it would be EASY To buy control of CNN.
He got a much more important job:
Former Rep. Trey Gowdy joins Trump legal team
the only way this will work if Rush turned into an LLC and be a silent partner, without his name on the papers. Remember how the libtards went ape-sh&t when he tried to buy the Rams years ago?
And then they un-terminated Marie Barf...
That is standard procedure for news networks...
Nothing new...FOX IS LOSING THEIR BASE...
Made me feel better...
Better question: If Hillary hires Donna “I got your debate questions, right here” Brazile as part of her campaign, would Fox News terminate her?
Yet Donna Brazille has no problem on FOX, even after getting caught giving debate questions to Hillary against Trump.
Absolutely, crowd fund and buy it as a Co-op. I think it could be done with the help of a few deep pocket conservative donors.
These media guys are pushing it.
I would not waste money buying brown objects that float.
Let CNN die a natural death.
