Former Congressman Trey Gowdy said on his Fox News show Sunday that freshman Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) should name names of those in Congress that he said he witnessed using hard drugs and ask others to attend orgies.
“I was in DC for eight years, and the people I associated with it were nothing like what this congressman described,” Gowdy said, insinuating that he didn’t believe Cawthorn’s accusations.
“My question for the congressman is simply this: Who? Give us the names . . . . Which of your colleagues believes he or she is above the law? Who is doubling as a deviant by night while talking about family values by day?”
Gowdy named several names of people in Congress now and when he served, and described their tame habits that were nothing like Cawthorn described.
“Either tell us who you saw doing cocaine and who invited you to sexually explicit parties, or admit what we suspect, which is that you made it up,” Gowdy said. “And then ask yourself where fairness and honesty fall on the list of qualities we should be looking for in members of Congress.”
