Former Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., hit back at Democrat Elizabeth Warren over Twitter in response to the Massachusetts Democrat’s claim that he retired from Congress to collect a “fat lobbyist paycheck.”

Warren cited a Daily Caller article on Friday that reported Gowdy would be joining Nelson Mullins, a South Carolina law and lobbying firm.

She then called for a lifetime ban on lobbying by former members of Congress.

Gowdy, who served for four terms before leaving Congress last week, responded on Twitter, “I’m not lobbying. Not now. Or ever. Perhaps you were cracking open a beer when that was announced,” referring an Instagram live video of Warren opening a beer. “Don’t mind your criticisms. Just be more sensitive to facts.”
