I knew that Q was referring to Trey Gowdy when I saw that!!

This dude is a pitbull and he is going to be sinking his teeth into the sick elite network of traffickers.

I became a fan of him after seeing this video...

Interesting times indeed.

DOJ IG report is due out soon as well.

If the report says what I suspect it will say, there will be calls for a special prosecutor.


Isn't that supposed to come out today?

Ah...I see what it is now....

He accepted a position as Chairperson of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform...so doesnt appear to be anything strange...just work overload.

He has held the Chair of that committee since June.


Right...just saying in the articles linked that this appointment was what made him step down. It is stated that he asked prior to that if he got the position he be removed from one of his other roles.

Today's been touted in several places. So far, it's not made an appearance online anywhere as of this posting.

I did find one blog article about it, but no larger news stations have posted anything on it.

Gowdy took over as chairman of the Oversight Committee in June after the panel's previous chair, former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), retired from the House. “Mr. Gowdy was serving on four committees when he ran for Chair of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. He requested to be relieved of his duties from the Ethics Committee should he win chairmanship given the significant increased workload," AshLee Strong, a spokeswoman for Ryan said in a statement. "We are grateful for his five years of service on the Ethics Committee and for agreeing to serve the remainder of the calendar year," she added.

I dont know about the whole Q thing.

But if this was posted by Q yesterday, it at least proves that they have some inside knowledge of whats going in these matters.


not really? it was already in the news by yesterday.


The South Carolina Republican tendered his resignation in a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday, the details of which were published in the Congressional Record on Thursday and reported by news outlets later in the week.

What are some of the Ethics Committee’s accomplishments from the past that I might have heard of?

(I only ask because I thought I heard somewhere that there’s been virtually(?) nothing that they’ve done...)

What does the ethics committee do?

Thanks for that.

As others are showing in posts above, apparently this is no surprise and was planned ever since Gowdy took his positions in the oversight committee

Not sure what they are supposed to do but since 2010 they have been a partisan group used to go after GOP rivals. Gowdy has been the head of it for most of that time.

No, there were stories about Trey Gowdy stepping down published Saturday. Here's three of them:

Washington Examiner
The Hill
Daily Caller

I'm thinking he has more important things to do. The Ethics Committee is a joke.

Just an observation, and I could be wrong. Hoping Gowdy is appointed as a special prosecutor might be a non starter. I dont believe a person can work for 2 different branches of government at the same time. It is why, should something happen where the Speaker of the House becomes President, they must resign their position in Congress before they can be sworn in.

A special prosecutor is attached to the executive branch. Gowdy, as a representative, is attached to the legislative.

Let's hoping he resigns so he can take the job

I would rather see Gowdy as AG than a special prosecutor.
