A major announcement was made by South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy on Wednesday morning. Trey Gowdy is known for being a House Intelligence Committee member who investigated Hillary Clinton’s role in Benghazi. He was also involved in keeping a focused probe into Clinton’s email scandal, Uranium One, and the Steele dossier case.
Unfortunately, Gowdy announced regretful news that he would be retiring from politics and return practicing in the criminal justice system.
But it leaves conservatives wondering if Clinton finally found a way to break the former prosecutor and force him into early retirement.
The Daily Caller Reports:
“Whatever skills I may have are better utilized in a courtroom than in Congress, and I enjoy our justice system more than our political system. As I look back on my career, it is the jobs that both seek and reward fairness that are most rewarding,” said Gowdy, a former assistant U.S. attorney.
“There is no perfect time to make this announcement,” he continued. “But with filing opening in six weeks, it is important to give the women and men in South Carolina who might be interested in serving ample time to reflect on the decision.”
Gowdy is one of the most high-profile Republicans in the House. He took over as chairman on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee last year and is a top member on the House Intelligence Committee.
On the Intelligence Committee, Gowdy helped craft a controversial memo alleging improper surveillance against a former Trump campaign adviser.
Gowdy becomes the ninth Republican to step down as chair of a congressional committee. Most recently, New Jersey Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, the chairman of the Appropriations Committee, announced he will retire from Congress.
It wouldn’t be no surprise that Clinton and her devious staff purposely caused Gowdy to retire in order to get him off her case about her recent scandals.
There seems to be more to this story. Check this out from Gowdy’s official website:
For 6 years as a federal prosecutor, Trey prosecuted the full range of federal crimes including narcotics trafficking rings, bank robberies, child pornography cases, and the murder of a federal witness. He was awarded the Postal Inspector’s Award for the successful prosecution of J. Mark Allen, one of “America’s Most Wanted” suspects. He also received the highest performance rating a federal prosecutor can receive – two years in a row.
As 7th Circuit Solicitor, Trey led an office of 25 attorneys and 65 total employees. During his tenure, he started a Violence Against Women Task Force and a Worthless Check Program, enhanced and expanded Drug Court, and implemented a Drug Mother Protocol designed to assist expectant mothers break the cycle of addiction.
He has been recognized statewide for his commitment to victim’s rights and drunken driving enforcement and nationally for excellence in death penalty prosecutions.
That begs the question of what is more to his retirement and who will keep tabs on crooked Hillary Clinton? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
