Trey Gowdy gave Donald Trump one piece of jaw-dropping advice

Mar 11, 2024

Former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy has been around the block a time or two.

Gowdy is an expert on law enforcement and legal matters.

And Trey Gowdy gave Donald Trump one piece of jaw-dropping advice.

Gowdy advises Trump to remain humble after Supreme Court win

Donald Trump and his supporters took a victory lap after the Supreme Court handed down a 9-0 decision rejecting the Left’s lawfare to remove Trump from the ballot using Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

But analyzing the decision on Fox News, Gowdy urged restraint.

He said Trump is likely to lose his Presidential immunity appeal when the Supreme Court hears oral arguments on April 25.

“I would encourage him to do something that he doesn’t often do, which is show humility because there are other decisions that are coming that he may not agree with,” Gowdy stated. “I don’t think he’s going to win the Presidential immunity case before the Court.”

“This was not a close case, and anyone who listened to oral arguments knows that. But neither is the Presidential immunity,” Gowdy added. “I don’t think that one’s going to wind up being close to either — the other direction.”

Trump follows Gowdy’s advice

In his comments to the nation following the decision, Trump praised the Supreme Court while also telling the public that this case was about principles bigger than his candidacy.

If Democrats would have succeeded in allowing partisan state election officials and Judges to remove candidates from the ballot over political grudges, then America would no longer have free and fair elections.

“I want to start by thanking the Supreme Court for its unanimous decision today. It was a very important decision, was very well crafted, and I think it will go a long way toward bringing our country together, which our country needs,” Trump stated. “And they worked long, they worked hard, and frankly, they worked very quickly on something that will be spoken about 100 years from now and 200 years from now. Extremely important.” 

Gowdy makes one key error 

But Gowdy may have misread the Court’s intentions.

The Supreme Court said it set out to answer if a President has immunity from criminal prosecution in the course of his official acts in office.

Past Supreme Court precedent in Nixon v. Fitzgerald established that Presidents have immunity from civil lawsuits if any of the actions in question fall inside the outer perimeter of their official duties.

There is no such standard for criminal prosecution because prior to Joe Biden, no sitting President ever tried to turn America into a banana republic by weaponizing the justice system against their predecessor.

Under the question the Supreme Court put at issue, the Justices could very well decide that a President has immunity from criminal prosecution provided the actions fall within the outer perimeter of their official duties.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals wrote in its opinion that there is no Presidential immunity whatsoever.

Supreme Court Justices likely understand that the D.C. Court’s ruling opens a can of worms that could result in Donald Trump indicting Barack Obama on federal murder charges for a 2011 drone bombing that killed an American citizen and his 16-year-old son.

The Court is likely to create an immunity standard and kick the case back down to the lower court for hearings about whether Trump’s conduct meets that standard.

And what that would mean is that there is no chance the January 6 trial against Donald Trump could start before the election.
