The Draining of the Washington Swap is about to begin in full force: Trey Gowdy has been appointed as the Head of the House Oversight Committee and will be responsible for House ethics and ensuring that all members of the House are doing their jobs cleanly and properly. It is one of the most powerful positions in government and his keen intelligence and prosecutorial background will serve him well in cleaning up the Swamp that the House has become.
Gowdy has a history of being a tough and moral guy, he has taken on corruption, political correctness and even those who try and use the Constitution for their own ends. One of his most high-profile targets to date has been Hillary Clinton over her involvement in the Benghazi debacle.
This is a Trump appointment that even Paul Ryan has gotten behind. Gowdy is determined to have transparency and accountability in government. He is one of the few that understands that they work for us, the people.
This kind of responsibility and profile is actually the perfect position for a Presidential trajectory, perhaps after he has served his term he will be appointed a key Cabinet role during Trump’s second term. Then in 2024…Who knows?
Today has been full of big news. First, James Comey outed himself as a leaker and hinted at collusion between Hillary Clinton and Loretta Lynch.
Now Trey Gowdy just got the official call to do a job that will make him one of the MOST POWERFUL people in the entire country…
Gowdy is replacing outgoing head Jason Chaffetz, who decided to step down before ending his term.
While the name “House oversight committee” may not sound exciting, it is one of the most powerful positions in the US government. Gowdy essentially now has complete oversight and ethics determination of the White House from now until he steps down or the majority changes.
Could this be the final piece of the puzzle needed to Drain the Swamp? Trey Gowdy sure did a number on Hillary during that Benghazi hearing and has been on fire ever since. Maybe it’s time to take her down for real.
Regardless, it is great news. Even though the story was initially reported to CNN by “sources”, Paul Ryan quickly confirmed the news and congratulated Gowdy on his accomplishment.
“Trey Gowdy possesses the experience and deep commitment to transparency and accountability necessary to be the House’s next Oversight chairman. He has proven that he will always look out for taxpayers and seek answers from the bureaucracy. Trey has my absolute confidence, and I know he will do an outstanding job.”
For once, I agree with Paul Ryan 100%. Sure, I would have loved to see Gowdy on the Supreme Court or in the FBI, but this is a great job for him to.
Who knows, maybe if we share this out and let him know how much we support him, there could be a President Gowdy in 2024 (after Trump’s 2nd term).
