The Good the Bad and the Gowdy
When Trey Gowdys name was mentioned as a possible replacement for fired FBI Director James Comey, I scoffed. Floating Gowdy was a smart play from the White House, since they know the base loves him, but I didnt buy it for a second. There are several reasons for that, but at the top of the list is why would he want to do that? Congress is a nice cushy gig.
Gowdy currently sits on the Oversight Committee, where his brutal interrogations make for riveting YouTube gold. Clips of him grilling the players in just about every major Obama-era scandal are now the stuff of political legend. If youre a Republican, you almost certainly love watching him tear into whatever crooked Democrat has the misfortune to cross his path.
House Committee on Hindsight and Government Expansion.
Great choice. The list of jailed crooks by Gowdy is too long to list here. All are pounding large rocks into small ones. NOT
Just another “do nothing but talk” BS artist for the gullible.
Always grateful to see Gowdy head up an investigation.
His critics want to attribute power to him that no committee chairman possesses, and expect outcomes that congressional investigative committees can neither deliver nor enforce. The hearings are generally useless and for public show.
But, no one competes with Trey Gowdy when it comes to verbally frisking these Leftists who come before his committee. No witness out shoots him on the law.
The entire exercise is a fact finding mission only and a great public show. It’s what happens between a witness’s arrival and departure from these committees that counts towards the facts.
Any and all consequences are up to the Justice Department/FBI.
Put the treasonous SOB’s in jail (at least one!). I am not holding my breath. All Congress does is talk,talk,talk. I would have ropes swinging and rocks breaking but I guess I am old fashioned.
When was the last time something positive came out of a House Oversight Committee hearing? As someone who has testified in front of one... they are nothing but grandstanding opportunities.
Elmer Gantry Gowdy. All bark and no bite. Perfect choice for the GOPe to keep everything neatly contained.
Yeah he talks a good game but when he has the rattlesnakes head under the hoe he NEVER finishes them off. I bet Trey could tell us how he was a sniper in... and how he won the game by himself doing...
“Great choice. The list of jailed crooks by Gowdy is too long to list here. All are pounding large rocks into small ones. NOT”
Actually when he was a District Attorney he did put a lot of criminals in jail.
Congressman Kabuki. What an ineffective putz.
Thank you, great post which most won’t read until after posting. :)
