Newly-minted Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy made his debut as such on "The Story" on Thursday, in which he was asked about the raid on former Trump associate Roger Stone's Broward County, Fla. home.

Stone, also a former Nixon campaign staffer, was arrested by more than two dozen heavily-armed FBI agents earlier this week, on charges of obstruction and lying to Congress.

Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor in South Carolina and now a practicing attorney, said that although the arrest was precipitated by the Mueller special counsel investigation, the raid itself would have been organized by the FBI.

Gowdy said he did not want to formally speculate, but questioned the use of force by the FBI on the quiet street in Fort Lauderdale.

He said that bureau director Christopher Wray is a "serious" individual and would not be acting in a questionable way.

Wray, a former top attorney for then-New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), should be "asked why the bureau thought that amount of force was necessary," Gowdy said.

The former congressman also reacted to news about Donald Trump Jr.'s previously mysterious call to a "blocked" number prior to the infamous "Trump Tower meeting."
