For those unfamiliar with Trey Gowdy, the South Carolina Representative is one of the most steadfastly conservative members of Congress. Fortunately, Representative Gowdy just got a major bump that could spell bad news for the Democrats.
According to several sources familiar with the move, Gowdy will replace California Republican Devin Nunes as the chairman in charge of the investigation into whether or not Russia interfered with the 2016 election. Gowdy will be supported by fellow Republicans Michael Conaway (R-TX) and Tom Rooney (R-FL), via Us Veterans.
Weeks earlier, Gowdy showed his colors by criticizing the far-left liberal Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and other Democrats who pressed for Nunes’ removal, via Fox News.
Weeks of unfair and biased accusations lobbied at Nunes, who was the first member of Congress to admit the Obama administration spied on the Trump team, finally forced the California Representative to step aside.
This move represents another scalp for the Democrats, who already successfully removed General Michael Flynn from the Trump administration, and forced Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from the ongoing Trump-Russia investigation.
This Republican willingness to roll over does not bode well for the future. The Democrats, who sense their coalition fracturing, will resort to scorched-Earth tactics to regain momentum.
Fortunately, Representative Gowdy has a proven mean streak, and doesn’t seem like he’s easily-swayed.
