For months, Deep State operatives have illegally leaked information to trip up the Trump administration.
Trump supporters have been begging for something to be done.
Now Trey Gowdy just earned a promotion that could demolish the Deep State conspiracy against Trump.
The Republican Steering Committee has tapped Gowdy to succeed Jason Chaffetz as chairman of the House Oversight Committee.
Chaffetz abruptly retired and Gowdy was quickly selected because of his investigative chops.
“Gowdy would replace outgoing Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who will resign at the end of June. Rep. Steve Russell (R-Okla.) had also put his name in for consideration to replace Chaffetz.
House GOP leaders encouraged Gowdy to run upon learning of Chaffetz’s looming departure. He is a close ally of Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on a panel composed of unpredictable Freedom Caucus conservatives with rocky relationships with leadership.
“Trey Gowdy possesses the experience and deep commitment to transparency and accountability necessary to be the House’s next Oversight chairman,” Ryan said in a statement. “He has proven that he will always look out for taxpayers and seek answers from the bureaucracy.”
Democrats and the Deep State have a reason to worry.
Politico also writes:
“It is unclear in what direction Gowdy will take his panel‘s part of the Trump-Comey investigation, which has quickly become one of the most contentious political scandals in modern American history. While the House and Senate intelligence committees have jurisdiction over Russia’s meddling in the U.S. election, questions of obstruction and how Trump might have tried to influence the probe fall more into Oversight’s purview, at least in the House.
Democrats worry that Gowdy will use the gavel to protect the White House or focus the investigation solely on leaks to the media that make Trump look bad. Democrats’ distrust of Gowdy stretches back to his work on the Benghazi probe, which they believe was a witch hunt against Hillary Clinton.”
If anyone can ferret out the leakers, it’s Gowdy.
The former prosecutor led the Benghazi Select Committee which uncovered Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server.
If Clinton couldn’t hide her off the books server from Gowdy, conservatives believe Deep State leakers stand little chance of remaining anonymous and out of jail.\
