Skip to comments.Rep. Trey Gowdy: There Is A Hunger For Conciliation And Unity In This Country
Posted on 12/29/2017 8:18:53 AM PST by Sir Napsalot
Republican congressmen Trey Gowdy joins former Rep. Jason Chaffetz and Rep. John Ratcliffe to reflect on the last year in Congress on FNC's 'The Ingraham Angle.'
Gowdy, as the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said he strongly supports Paul Ryan as Speaker but his fellow South Carolinian Sen. Tim Scott is the "best person in politics."
"He and I are virtually inseparable," Gowdy said. Gowdy and Scott are currently co-writing a book about their "unlikely" friendship. "We have different views on some pretty serious issues, but we have just chosen to have a friendship some would call unlikely because we are more interested in the conciliation than we are the conflict," Gowdy said about Scott.
"Contrast is fine," Gowdy added. "I'm glad we don't all pull for the Cowboys, I'm glad we don't all go watch the same movie at the same time, but the contrast has morphed into conflict. And what I hear almost everywhere I go is this sense of angst, this divisiveness."
"We are the United States of America, so I would love for us to spend almost as much time celebrating what we have in common as we do harping on the differences," he concluded.

Do you hear Pelosi said "Conciliation And Unity" for the country? NO. It is always Conciliation And Unity the Dems way.
Compare rooting for a football team to saving America. Gowdys a fraud.
Ahh geez...Time to write books but not get off your ass and do your job. Term limits please.
Writing a ‘Kumbaya-What the World Needs Now’ type book is nice, but that could wait till Gowdy has retired. There are other matters far more urgent being left undone, undiscussed.
May want to exchange that Olive Branch for a 2 by 4”.
Obama was intended to divide.
Always has been. The 400 year investigation into Benghazi proved that.
No compromise. Or VERY little.
Well, Mr. Gowdy, the Democrats don't see it that way. They wish you dead. And they wish all conservatives dead. And they unleash organizations to destroy our property, smear our good names, intimidate our children, and undermine our president.
Mr. Gowdy, grow up or shut up.
Oh yes, I saw this last night and had to turn it off before Trey made me throw up with his little goober head being all up Ryan’s rear end.
The naïveté is epic.
Trey is basically a good guy but dreaming on conciliation.
We have a mandate. We refuse to allow the global communists to kill America. Time for them to leave the country.
No, there is a hunger for Justice for All in this country, no matter how rich or connected or what pol party if any.
Trey Gowdy............the ultimate ankle biter.
“Rep. Trey Gowdy: There Is A Hunger For Conciliation And Unity In This Country”
Gotta remember WTF we are here!
And, Don’t Fergit To Laugh!
Gowdy is no Patriot.
I saw that interview last night. Gowdy turned my stomach. He went on and on about how this senator was his soulmate, although they were so different, coming from diverse backgrounds and having many opposing political opinions.
Just in case someone in the audience didn’t know the senator was black, Gowdy, a guest, asked to have a picture put on the screen. It suddenly appeared.
There is a “hunger” for common sense, truth, and country, Mr. Gowdy. You are lacking in all three.....
Has he started drinking early for New Years?
I have no hunger for conciliation with these sobs. At this point, I would be happy to exile them all to Iraq!
“Obama was intended to divide.
The POF succeeded !
Few yet still grok this......???
I love Gowdy but I had to bust up on this one.
Well played sir. There can be no doubt he has a little goober head.
(sorry for laughing, Trey)
