Liberals are about to get a harsh dose of reality—the House Intelligence Committee will soon be forced to “welcome” a new member, and they aren’t going to like who it is!
Patriot and true statesman Trey Gowdy is the newest member of the House Intelligence Committee. No fake Russian hacking reports will pass muster now! Gowdy represents the 4th District of South Carolina.
Trey Gowdy : Looking forward to joining the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
“Protecting the safety and security of our fellow citizens is the preeminent function of government,” Gowdy said in a statement announcing his new position on the House Intelligence Committee. “When it comes to our national security, we cannot afford to take risks.”
The House Intelligence Committee has existed for more than 40 years. Its members routinely deal with matters pertaining to classified information that pass the desks of 17 different federal intelligence agencies, the Independent Journal Review reports.
Gowdy has publicly stated that foreign intrusion of any type into our elections is a very concerning matter and should be looked into. He is right, and now the Russian hacking allegations can finally be investigated both properly and thoroughly – as they should have been in the first place sans partisan politics.
“The House Intelligence Committee plays a vital role in protecting Americans both at home and abroad through conducting thorough oversight of our nation’s intelligence agencies,” Gowdy added. “I look forward to joining the House Intelligence Committee and working with Chairman Nunes and my colleagues to ensure national security remains the top priority in the 115th Congress.”
Representative Gowdy was a highly successful and no-nonsense federal prosecutor before being elected to Congress. While chairing the House Select Committee, he successfully boxed Hillary Clinton into a corner over the four deaths she caused during the Benghazi terror attack.
Harold Watson “Trey” Gowdy III has served on the House Committees on Ethics, Oversight and Government Reform, and Judiciary, and as chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security. He graduated from Baylor University in 1986 with a degree in history and the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1989 where he was a member of the scholastic honor society.
Gowdy was awarded the Postal Inspector’s Award for the successful prosecution of J. Mark Allen, one of America’s Most Wanted suspects. The South Carolina representative also had the highest performance rating a federal prosecutor can receive two years in a row.
