Republicans thought Trey Gowdy was one of Donald Trump’s top supporters.
But after one appearance on Fox News everything changed.
And Trey Gowdy stunned Trump supporters into silence by going rogue on this issue.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
Harris Faulkner hosts Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered.”
Faulkner weighed in on the shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin and the ensuing nights-long riots and anarchy that consumed the city.
Trey Gowdy appeared as a guest on “Outnumbered” due to his expertise on legal matters owing to his previous career as a federal prosecutor.
Gowdy surprised Fox News viewers by condemning the police without – as he admitted – knowing all the facts.
“My first question is, I want to see the inventory search of the car,” Gowdy added. “What was in the car that he was trying to get into? Then I want to know, is there any audio? I’ve seen the video. The video is damning. The video makes me conclude that this was a bad shoot, a criminal shoot. But I want to know if there is audio.”
Gowdy also dismissed the circumstances that led up to the shooting.
“The third thing I want to know is what happened leading up to it, but that is less important,” Gowdy continued. “Number one, inventory search of the car, what was in the car that Jacob Blake was trying to get into.”
The facts of this case all cut against Gowdy’s outrageous assertion that the police officers were criminals.
Authorities in Wisconsin later informed the public that police were responding to a 9-1-1 call from a woman saying Blake was allegedly at her residence and he was not supposed to be.
The Attorney General also revealed that police tried to use a taser to subdue Blake, but that failed.
Video published by the Daily Mail showed Blake fighting off two police officers and then walking to the other side of his car where he reached into the vehicle.
The witness who filmed the altercation said police asked Blake to drop his knife.
Wisconsin authorities appeared to confirm that by reporting that Blake admitted that he had a knife on him when the police opened fire.
Donald Trump’s law and order message was beginning to resonate with voters.
Focus groups and polling data showed the riots taking a toll on Joe Biden and the Democrats.
That’s why Trump supporters were surprised to see Trey Gowdy reflexively come out against police officers despite the facts being in doubt.
As more facts came in, it became clear this was not an example of police officers murdering an unarmed black man for sport.
The truth was far more complicated.
But for one day, Trey Gowdy caved in to the passions of the mob and condemned a police officer as a criminal without any evidence.
