Former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) has joined Fox News as a contributor, the network announced Wednesday.

Gowdy, who retired from Congress earlier this month, will offer political and legal analysis on Fox News and the Fox Business Network, the outlet said in a press release.

The former four-term congressman representing South Carolina’s 4th Congressional District served as chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee during his final two years in office.{mosads}

A former federal prosecutor, Gowdy was perhaps best known for his work as chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, where he grilled former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other Obama administration officials over their roles and knowledge of the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in the eastern Libyan city.

Gowdy is the latest recently departed member of Congress to join a major network as a contributor. Former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) has signed with CBS, former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) signed on with MSNBC and former Reps. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) and Mia Love (R-Utah) have appeared on CNN.
