Hon. Paul D. Ryan, Speaker, House of Representatives, Washington, DC. Dear Speaker Ryan: Thank you for the privilege of serving for the past 5 years on the House Ethics Committee. While few, if any, members seek this assignment, the collegiality of the members coupled with the seriousness of the jurisdiction have made it an experience I will treasure.
When I became Chairperson of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform I knew I would not be able to keep all other committee assignments to include Judiciary, Intelligence and Ethics. Four committee assignments, including a Chairmanship, is a challenging workload. I was happy to finish out the calendar year and conclude some matters then pending before the Committee. Accordingly, I tender my resignation from the House Ethics Committee pending your designation of a replacement.
Thank you again for this opportunity and thank you to my colleagues on the Committee for their hard work and friendship. Sincerely, Trey Gowdy,
Member of Congress.
The SPEAKER pro tempore. Without objection, the resignation is accepted.
There was no objection.

No offense meant... I like him... but what did he accomplish in 5 years other than talking at people?
Did someone get his file?
When is Ryan going to resign?
He couldn’t help himself to take another “these are not our values” dig against Trump for his sh!thole comment.
Thank you Congressman Gowdy for all you did to expose the criminal acts to the public.
I went to his twitter page. He posts like he is Comey’s brother.
His hair resigned 10 minutes before he did.
Watch Trey Gowdy DESTROY Trey Gowdy.
Interesting. I wonder what is behind this move.
This conman assured us Comey was a man of character and Mueller was a quintessential straight arrow... while they set up the president with a phony dossier.
In 2013 he was worth $200k. Now he’s worth 4.5 million $$$
Puts the moo in moon.
Since the ethics committee meets behind closed doors and open to the public Rooster head can’t show off his Kabuki Theatre skills in front of TV
Maybe he can be replaced with someone more effective.
He must be a real good investor on his $174,000 a year salary. /s
I guess he actually accomplished something ma king all that money. He is also a champion nothingburger eater.
The end of the Kabuki King.
