Former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) explained this week how former President Barack Obama may be a relevant witness in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
“Part of impeachment is setting a precedent for what’s going to happen in the future,” Gowdy told Fox News host Sean Hannity,
“So, if the vice president can make that assertion, then he is relevant as a witness, but so too is President Obama because I would want to know whether or not he had the authority of the president at the time he made that that pronouncement that there’ll be no loan guarantees unless the prosecutor is fired,” he continued.
Gowdy explained that if Democrats claim that Trump has engaged in “unprecedented abuse of power” then that “makes what other presidents did relevant.”
Gowdy was referring to the infamous video of Biden in 2018 bragging about threatening to withhold aid from Ukraine if the country did not fire its top prosecutor.
