Gowdy, we will miss you. The GOP legislator has declared that he won’t look for re-election once his term is up, and that is a truly huge hit for a Republican party that can utilize a man of his ability to stay the course on Capitol Hill.
Gratefully, Gowdy isn’t going to leave discreetly into the night. He remains a key player in the House, and he’s been making a special effort to get to the base of an entire pack of hogwash before he leaves stage right.
Fox News shares another case of that.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., strongly implied to Fox News Tuesday night that Clinton family confidant Sidney Blumenthal was a key link in a chain of information that helped create the controversial Trump-Russia dossier.
Gowdy told Fox News’ “The Story” that “when you hear who … one of the sources of that information is, you’re going to think, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ve heard that name somewhere before.’
When host Martha MacCallum asked if he was referring to Blumenthal, Gowdy answered, “That’d be really warm. You’re warm, yeah.”
The Trump-Russia dossier has just been totally undermined, so it remains out and out incredible that it was utilized as the fuel for anything looking like an examination.
Be that as it may, they are at last drawing an obvious conclusion.
Gowdy has been a major piece of that, and it sounds like he has considerably more he needs to achieve before his time in the House is up.
Gowdy told MacCallum that “there is a State Department component” to the dossier that “needs to be investigated.”
“I’m pretty troubled by what I read in the documents with respect to the role the State Department played in the fall of 2016 with including information that was used in a [FISA] court proceeding,” Gowdy said. “I am troubled by that.”
Gowdy isn’t the only one on that. The more the onion gets peeled back on what the forces that be in the background were doing, the more the air gets loaded with a foul odor.
Concerning why Gowdy is proceeding onward, there’s not a drop of drama to be found.
Gowdy also addressed his decision to leave Congress, saying it was “just the right time.”
I won’t ever run for office again,” he promised. “When you leave politics, to me, it’s important that you leave. And I’m at peace with that.”
We positively regard his choice and wish him well as he re-enters the private sector, and we’ll keep our fingers crossed that he uncovered significantly a greater amount of the lunacy that drove us to this babble Special Counsel examination in any case before he proceeds onward.
