Former Rep. Trey Gowdy has left Congress and will rejoin the private sector, and Elizabeth Warren thought she spotted an opening:
.@TGowdySC foamed at the mouth with power in Congress, then retired because he claimed he didn't enjoy it. Now it’s clear: Trey Gowdy just wanted a fat lobbyist paycheck. That should be illegal. https://t.co/mxnxaufvgU

Gowdy dropped a mic so hard Warren might have spilled her beer:
.@ewarren I’m not lobbying. Not now. Or ever. Perhaps you were cracking open a beer when that was announced. Don’t mind your criticisms. Just be more sensitive to facts.

Uh, Gowdy is a lawyer. He's returning to the law firm where he worked prior to being in government. There's no indication he'll be a lobbyist. So the story is really just Former Congressman Returns To Day Job https://t.co/vcmtOQGkU9

Warren didn’t even read 1/1024th of the story before mouthing off and getting the facts wrong. https://t.co/MCt4SvhRP3
