The moment Donald Trump Jr. agreed to a meeting with a Russian lawyer, who vowed to conduct a thorough research on Hillary Clinton, Democrats erupted in disagreement. However, according to South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy, who used to work as an attorney himself, there is nothing wrongful with Trump making this move.
Gowdy had an interview over at Fox & Friends on Thursday, where he was asked if Trump Jr. broke the rules, to which he simply replied, “No, I don’t even think he did anything improper.”

Moreover, the fact that Donald Trump Jr. endured an investigation for over 10 hours, caused for Gowdy to proclaim him as “incredibly professional.”
“Did he break any laws?” asked the Fox & Friends host.
“No, I don’t even think he did anything improper. Differing minds can quibble about whether you should accept an offer to provide oppo-research,” Gowdy added.
Gowdy finished off his segment in style, saying, “Keep in mind the DNC was paying $10 million to do oppo-research on Trump.”
Trey Gowdy then switched the subject and began praising the majority of FBI agents, but kept a serious tone when it came to the way the Bureau was governed.
“The higher-ups have had a really bad two years,” Gowdy said, commenting that they are the ones “whose reputations are under assault, not the line agents.”
“Congress should not have to fight with the FBI to access information that we’re entitled to. We should not have to threaten Contempt of Congress,” The South Carolina Congressman said. “I want the information we are entitled to be able to do our jobs.”
