Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., began her 2020 campaign with a “demonstrably false allegation,” according to former Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.

“If you are going to criticize the president and other people for being loose with the facts, don’t be loose with the facts yourself,” Gowdy said on Fox News. “She is running for president of the United States. And she kicks it off by making a demonstrably false allegation against a former colleague.”
Since leaving Congress last week, Gowdy has rejoined his old law firm, Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, in South Carolina as a white-collar defense attorney.

Just be more sensitive to facts,” he added on Twitter.
