The Truth: A self-described fake news website is behind false reports that U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy was found beaten and bloodied outside his office in Washington, D.C., on June 28, 2017. The rumor started with a report that appeared Last Line of Defense under the headline, "Trey Gowdy Found Beaten, Bloody And Unconscious." The article claims that Gowdy was dragged from his office by an unknown attacker who evaded a five-mile wide police dragnet using hidden tunnels under the city:
Trey Gowdy, on the other hand, is safe and recovering in a medically induced coma. Dr. Clem Brookstein told LLOD correspondent Skip Tetheluda:
“Trey should be OK with time for his brain to drain a bit and the numerous bones to heal. He also has no fingernails. It appears in the short few hours he was missing that he was tortured.”
