Former Rep. Trey Gowdy stepped out of office and into life as a private citizen with one last bit of congressional drama.

The South Carolina Republican fired back at Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in a parting shot after her personal insult over his post-congressional plans.

Gowdy, who announced last January that he would not be seeking re-election after serving four terms in the House, officially became a member of the private South Carolina-based law firm Nelson Mullins this week.

Warren tweeted out an attack on Gowdy in response to a story detailing his future plans, accusing the former chair of the House Oversight Committee of “illegal” activity in joining the law and lobbying firm.

The Massachusetts Democrat followed up with a call for a “lifetime ban on lobbying for members of Congress.”

Gowdy blasted the senator for questioning his integrity in a scathing rebuke on Twitter.

“I’m not lobbying. Not now. Or ever. Perhaps you were cracking open a beer when that was announced,” he tweeted, referring to Warren’s infamous Instagram Live video in which she drank from a bottle of beer while talking to her followers.

Warren had also released a video announcing that she had formed an exploratory committee for a possible 2020 presidential election bid.

Warren’s insulting attack and Gowdy’s rebuttal as he rejoined the Nelson Mullins firm, where his focus will be on white-collar criminal defense and independent government investigations, sparked an overwhelming response on Twitter.
