Trey Gowdy is one man both sides of the aisle can always count on to ask the tough questions yet be completely fair at the same time. Earlier this month month Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah),announced he will be resigning from Congress at the end of June. That would leave the seat of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee unoccupied.
Today the Republican Steering Committee elected Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., to be the next Chairman, effective immediately upon Chaffetz’s departure.
Gowdy commented, “I am grateful to the Steering Committee and the Conference as a whole for this opportunity to serve.“I look forward to working alongside the other Committee members, as well as any member of Congress, as we discharge the jurisdiction assigned to us.”

According to FOX News:
Gowdy will replace outgoing Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who is resigning from Congress at the end of June.
“Trey Gowdy is the right person for the job,” Chaffetz said in a statement. “He has a long history of demanding accountability, upholding transparency, and relentlessly pursuing the truth. Under his capable leadership, the Committee will continue to work towards ensuring effectiveness and efficiency throughout the federal government. As his friend and colleague, I have every confidence in his abilities moving forward.”
Gowdy is a former federal prosecutor who led a two-year inquiry into the deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya, and was an outspoken critic of the Obama administration. As the new chairman, he will lead oversight of the Trump administration, including a nascent investigation of possible ties between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign.
**Three Cheers for Trey Gowdy! They could not, in our humble opinion, selected a better man for the job! Or Woman! 🙂
** Are you fed up with all the “entitled” liberals and lying Democrats attacking the President of the United States, while they themselves think they are above the law?
