Trey Gowdy To Takeover As Chairman
Of House Oversight Committee
by Rick Wells

{} ~ The next chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, replacing the resigning Rep Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) has been selected... It is Rep Trey Gowdy (R-SC) who was chosen Thursday by the House GOP Steering Committee. Gowdy issued a statement in response to being selected for the position, saying, “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.” The House GOP conference is expected to ratify the Steering Committee’s selection as soon as Tuesday. Gowdy would then immediately take over the duties of Oversight Committee chairman from Chaffetz...Yes, this is great!

And nothing will come of anything. But maybe, this will be different.

In my opinion, until there is a kick-butt Attorney General, instead of a southern gentleman in that position, nothing will set the precedent for actually "Draining the Swamp."

;' /   Buford Pusser for AG !!


post thought = we could maybe get close to Buford Pusser with Sheriff Clarke


I do like both of these men but lets see if Gowdy will do well.

we'll see. I'll need to see more than barks and growls before I can muster up hope for Gowdy. Kinda w/Jeanine on that one..  but I was responding to her about the AG position, which isn't about Gowdy. The position he is attaining sounds like a bigger podium for barking and growling but having no real teeth still yet. I don't know, maybe he'll actually 'show me' this time.. that would be good.


Don't be surprise when he does

9th  I was referring to setting an example by the "top" dog, which has not happened, and sure became a let-down with Session's recusal.


Yes ok


I do and most do have confident in Gowdy. Lets wait and see.

Gowdy is one of very few reputable chairmen on the Hill. I DO have a lot of faith in him BUT these committees have done VERY LITTLE IN EVEN bringing to light the real crimes and investigations that need to be brought into the public eye. i.e. re-open Clinton e-mail scandal, finding out and charging leakers of classified info to press and charge both Comey and Lynch. Comey's testimony yesterday should be enough to veer focus in the right direction, now, lets' see if he can do it.


I do see your concern and I do agree. Gowdy will do his job and do it well.

I know he will. I'm a fan, His verbal punches are knockouts every time. It's a beautiful thing to see, but, I do also understand 9thA's comment and viewpoint. There are more aggressive tactics the senate committees can do, that they have not done and it's getting really really old. Gowdy is a fighter, a staunch conservative, makes no apologies and a true believer in the law and constitution. Dems have no cake-walk with him there, we just now need to see some bite with that bark.


Good response. I have no doubts. He will do well.




Breaking:  FBI Admits Comey Leaked Memos 
 That Were Classified   Material! 

The FBI turned over the Comey memos to Congress today after missing their deadline earlier in the week.

Congressional leaders threatened to impeach deep state leaders if they continued to stall on the memos.

Fired FBI Chief James Comey wrote about the memos in his book and leaked the documents to reporters last year. Congress has not yet had a chance to look at the memos — Until tonight.


Meaning Fired FBI Chief James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS TO THE PRESS.

From the report:

From the DOJ to Congress:

Therefore, pursuant to your request, we are providing the requested memoranda in both the redacted and unredacted formats for your convenience. Consistent with your request, we are providing an unclassified version of the documents redacted to remove any classified information.

The DOJ wrote Congressional leaders this evening.

GOP Congressional Leaders Nunes, Gowdy And Goodlatte Release Statement On Comey Memos

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Ca.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) issued a statement on the memos later tonight.

The House chairmen note that the memos prove that fired Director Comey never felt obstructed or threatened from his relationship with the president.

And… former Director Comey leaked at least one of these memos for the stated purpose of spurring the appointment of Special Counsel.

The Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence published the statement tonight:

Today House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Ca.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) issued the following statement:

“We have long argued former Director Comey’s self-styled memos should be in the public domain, subject to any classification redactions. These memos are significant for both what is in them and what is not.

Former Director Comey’s memos show the President made clear he wanted allegations of collusion, coordination, and conspiracy between his campaign and Russia fully investigated. The memos also made clear the ‘cloud’ President Trump wanted lifted was not the Russian interference in the 2016 election cloud, rather it was the salacious, unsubstantiated allegations related to personal conduct leveled in the dossier.

The memos also show former Director Comey never wrote that he felt obstructed or threatened. While former Director Comey went to great lengths to set dining room scenes, discuss height requirements, describe the multiple times he felt complimented, and myriad other extraneous facts, he never once mentioned the most relevant fact of all, which was whether he felt obstructed in his investigation.

The memos also make certain what has become increasingly clear of late: former Director Comey has at least two different standards in his interactions with others. He chose not to memorialize conversations with President Obama, Attorney General Lynch, Secretary Clinton, Andrew McCabe or others, but he immediately began to memorialize conversations with President Trump. It is significant former Director Comey made no effort to memorialize conversations with former Attorney General Lynch despite concerns apparently significant enough to warrant his unprecedented appropriation of the charging decision away from her and the Department of Justice in July of 2016.

These memos also lay bare the notion that former Director Comey is not motivated by animus. He was willing to work for someone he deemed morally unsuited for office, capable of lying, requiring of personal loyalty, worthy of impeachment, and sharing the traits of a mob boss. Former Director Comey was willing to overlook all of the aforementioned characteristics in order to keep his job. In his eyes, the real crime was his own firing.

The memos show Comey was blind to biases within the FBI and had terrible judgment with respect to his deputy Andrew McCabe. On multiple occasions he, in his own words, defended the character of McCabe after President Trump questioned McCabe.

Finally, former Director Comey leaked at least one of these memos for the stated purpose of spurring the appointment of Special Counsel, yet he took no steps to spur the appointment of Special Counsel when he had significant concerns about the objectivity of the Department of Justice under Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

As we have consistently said, rather than making a criminal case for obstruction or interference with an ongoing investigation, these memos would be Defense Exhibit A should such a charge be made.”
