Liz Warren Picks a Fight With Trey Gowdy Over Lobbying. He Had a Quick Response.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is used to sparring with the best of 'em in Congress, so he had no problem clapping back at Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-MA) attacks on Twitter Friday. Warren, who recently announced her plans to run for president in 2020, for some reason picked a fight with the now former representative over his career change. Gowdy recently announced his plans to work for Nelson Mullins, a South Carolina-based law and lobbying firm. He had previously worked at the firm until 1994.

Aha! Sen. Warren said on Twitter (paraphrasing).

Warren used the opportunity to call for "a lifetime ban on lobbying for members of Congress." That way, the likes of Rep. Gowdy and former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) can't use the guise of public service "to enrich themselves."

Gowdy corrected her, while simultaneously mocking her recent Instagram video in which she answered her fans' questions while cracking open a beer.

Gowdy was pleased to make the announcement about his return to Nelson Mullins on Thursday.

“I am very excited to join Nelson Mullins, a firm with a rich, deep, and diverse team of talented attorneys and a reputation for excellence in all facets of the law,” he said in a statement.

As some noted, Warren's breathless exposé is really a non-story.
