The day after January 6, Trey Gowdy went on Fox News to condemn President Trump and his supporters for the events that took place at the US Capitol, stating, “Prosecute every damn one of them to the fullest extent of the law.”
Americans may have forgotten that Trey Gowdy, host of Sunday Night in America on Fox News, previously slammed President Donald Trump and his supporters over the events that took place at the Capitol on January 6, calling for the government to “prosecute every damn one of them to the fullest extent of the law” the day after the situation took place.
“Just a sad despicable day. I never, never thought, I worked there for 8 years Sandra, I never thought I would see Americans assault law enforcement officers trying to break into the People’s House. Prosecute every one of them to the fullest extent of the law,” Gowdy told Fox News host Sandra Smith, as the FBI call line showed on the screen.

“I don’t know how reasonably foreseeable it should be for cops that tens of thousands of people are going to be told to go fight, that an election was stolen from them, to go fight, to blame Mike Pence and Tommy Cotton and Ken Buck and other Republicans,” Gowdy said.
“Did you listen to the President’s speech yesterday?” Gowdy asked Smith. “I did,” she replied. Gowdy continued, “Who said go fight? Who blamed Mike Pence? Who blamed Republicans? Who said the election was stolen?” (READ MORE: Pence Eyes 2024 Presidential Run After Betraying Constitution, Trump, American People)
“I can tell you that [President Trump] said ‘Let’s march together to the Capitol.’ I don’t think he marched with them so, I don’t blame the cops when tens of thousands of people are told an election was stolen from them, and then they decide to scale the walls of the People’s House. I don’t blame the cops for that. I blame the people who did it,” said Gowdy.
