South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy Leaving Politics

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Ever the bulldog on Capitol Hill, from relentlessly pursuing the truth behind the Benghazi 9/11 terrorist attack and its cover up, to holding the FBI’s feet to the fire in the latest Deep State scandal, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) announced Wednesday that he will not be seeking reelection and is returning the the justice system.

“The former federal prosecutor was elected to Congress in 2010. He quickly gained fame for his role in investigating Obama administration scandals on the Oversight Committee and then as the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

The 53-year-old Gowdy, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, has been outspoken about the FBI’s investigations into 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s email practices, as well as the Russia probe involving President Trump and his aides. Most recently, he has been a proponent of publicly releasing the House Intelligence Committee memo on alleged government surveillance abuses.”

Gowdy’s absence from congress will mean one less rough-and-tumble Republican able to take Democrats to task for their persistent nonsense. Hopefully, our neighbor to the south can replace him with a conservative willing to take the fight to the Left and Big Government.
