Rep. Trey Gowdy won’t seek reelection; predicted by QAnon

Rep. Harold “Trey” Gowdy

Today, fearless warrior for truth Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, announced in a tweet that he won’t be seeking reelection and will leave politics to return to the justice system.

Interestingly, QAnon had predicted this 17 days ago (TG = Troy Gowdy):

What does “returning to the justice system” mean?

Before he became a Congressman, Gowdy, 53, was a federal prosecutor for the U.S. Attorney for the District of South Carolina from 1994 to 2000, and then as the district attorney for South Carolina’s Seventh Judicial Circuit from 2000 to 2010.

In Congress, from 2014 to 2016, Gowdy chaired the House Select Committee on Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi, which was partly responsible for discovering the existence of Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server.

Gov. Mike Huckabee tweeted what many conservatives hope:

The AltMedia is alit with speculations, including:

  • U.S. Special Counsel to investigate the FBI and DOJ.
  • Replace Jeff Sessions as U.S. Attorney General and “Lock Her Up!”
  • As Supreme Court justice: Two slots may open up —
    • Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who will be 85 years old this March.
    • Sonia Sotomayor, 63, whose diabetes is increasingly disabling. Twelve days ago, on January 19, paramedics were called to her Washington, D.C. home, where she was treated for low blood sugar. Last year, President Donald Trump hinted at possibly having to replace her on the bench during his time in office because of her diabetes. He said: “Her health. No good. Diabetes.”

At the last State of the Union address given by Obummer . . . she could not even stay awake. She blamed a glass of wine with dinner for the problem . . . NO! She is succumbing to the problems inherent with those who are approaching the end of their life. I don’t castigate her for that, it will surely come to each of us; but it is a travesty that she refuses to retire gracefully, and return to her home to live the rest of her life in peace. This is a ridiculous situation . . . if she does not have the good sense to go ahead and retire, then there should be laws instituted that would force her, and others, to take medically administered testing at age 75 to ensure that they can handle the cognitive challenges of being on the Supreme Court of the United States! I don’t think that we allow pilots to fly at age 85, her position is just as critical to the well being of other people as a pilot’s cognitive ability is to passengers.

        • Commercial airline pilots are required by law to retire at age 60. Another factor to consider, in addition to age, is eyesight: Near as possible to 20/20 is required, to the best of my knowledge (which would have ruled me out at age 11!)
          I don’t know if I can agree with you about the age limit for judges or Supreme Court Justices. Certainly, a cognitive test could be implemented, but that would require a constitutional amendment.
          At any rate, I know I myself have more calendars behind me than I have in front of me. I am in good health—Thank God—but I am slowing down a bit. (My reflexes are still excellent).

          At 62 (in a few days) I can say I have enjoyed being middle-aged more than I have enjoyed my youth. But I do realize, with each passing month, that the BREVITY OF LIFE is that Don Quixote on his horse, down the road, looking at me, as he advances…

At 75 I have to recognise my new limitations and spend far more time working to stay as fit as possible to be a minimum bother to those around me. She has wealth and resources not available to me, yet she persists in doing what? Bench warming to conserve the building’s heat? 75 should be the mandatory retirement.

I was so glad that when my Father got up to about 80, he gave up driving. All on his own, no one forced him. That was certainly a blessing to all of his children. I should surmise that it would not be very much fun to have to put the hammer down, and insist that a parent stop driving.

            Talking of competent driving. I was glad that today my youngest brother complimented me. He said that I was a much better driver than our brother, and even a better driver than me–so perhaps I also can stay on the road another 10 years! I hope so, or I hope to have the good sense to give it up when it’s time.

  3. It must have been a frustrating time for him in DC. He came from winning most of his cases to working his butt off exposing the crimes committed in DC and seeing little to no results. He is a bulldog and it had to be awful to see so many hours go down the drain. You lie in DC and walk away.
    I would love to see him in a high position, but then I remember him being absolutely POd when he found out Obama sneaked in dozens of invaders into his town in the middle of the night without warning. Is he going to stay closer to home to monitor that situation?
    Whatever he decides I wish him the best.

    • I always got the feeling that he could clean the whole mess up if they’d just turn him loose. He ended up looking like Henry Waxman in the sense that he knew what was wrong but his colleagues wouldn’t support him. I think that’s why his buddy on the committee quit.

      He subpoenaed documents and people and he didn’t get them. When he demanded them he still didn’t get them. The norm would be for a federal marshal to go arrest them for contempt. It didn’t happen.

      I’m sure in his home state he will have more power than he did in D.C.. It’s a sewer.

  4. DR Eowyn . . . . thank you so much for bringing this information to us. I was absolutely heartsick when I read that he is retiring. As private citizens, we have so few of our Congressional leaders that we can look took, and think of them as being “shining stars.” Whenever I have watched him in action, I feel inspired that perhaps all is not lost relative to the future of the United States of America.

    I can only hope that some how, some way, he will be positioned somewhere that his expertise will bless our entire nation.

    I am envious of the people of South Carolina . . . they get a “shining star” to represent them! All the while the people of Oregon get a gaggle of misfit, miscreant, commie horse’s patutes to represent us! Life just ain’t fair!

  7. I’ve gotta ask…what do y’all think of the train crash today?
    I watched the SOTU last night, and it felt so good to watch after so many years of Clinton, Bush, and Obama. But I had a bad feeling. I tuned in right after the First Lady came out, and I recognized a lot of the members of Congress for once, and I even saw my former governor, Rick Perry…he looked really good. But I still had a bad feeling. When I saw the looks of the Democrats and their reactions, I was very nervous about it. When President Trump came out, I just felt this urgent need to pray, which I did, for his protection and safety. I so enjoyed his speech, and it was so good, but I couldn’t shake that nervous feeling. After he finished and was shaking hands and signing autographs, I was just anxious for him to get somewhere safer.

    I know that the President is very well protected, but I also know there is extreme evil at work. Some of these people are psychopaths who cannot be trusted. Then this crash that happened and it smells fishy and the timing of it is suspicious. I still haven’t gotten rid of the bad feeling.

He did seem prone to adapting to the swamp and seemed perfectly at home there. Perhaps he could serve at higher levels in the law enforcement or judicial system. Certainly he would be better than the people he might replace,

      Government is only as good as the people in it. If they have no honor they will protect the thieves that own them. I think he was good at pointing out their failures. He wasn’t able to shame them into doing much.

  14. I wouldn’t trust this establishment globalist anywhere near the justice system. Why? The man has time and again lauded both Mueller and Rosenstein, both of whom we think are traitors to America and part of the Deep State. Not only that, this is a barking dog, one who has blathered on and on at Hillary and others, but never gotten a bite…all talk, no action. Afraid he’s bailing for a reason…and I hope we don’t have to deal with him again. Note that he waited rather late in the game, was that so the Dem would get his seat? I don’t know, but he’s definitely another neo-con Trotskyite, not a true Constitutional conservative.

He is part of the swamp and it is no coincidence that nothing has been accomplished under his oversight. Theatre for the patriots or as you have stated, another barking dog. Someone who also supported Rubio as he did with the presidential run is another indicator. Rubio is another globalist twit. In my search for that really juicy article that I could not relocate, I came across info that said Gowdy tried initially to get in the way of Devin Nunes’ way of wanting to release the FISA docs.

        • Whistleblowers? Real whistleblowers? Anyway, being compromised in DC doesn’t necessarily mean being photographed through a two-way mirror in flagrante delicto or being ratted out by some ho for money, and in these doings generally means having known about calling the intentional destruction of 280,000 tons of post-911 structural evidence an investigation—officially labeled PENTTBOM by the FBI for laughs—all under the direction of Robert Mueller, who, of all the coincidences—can you believe it—, took over the Bureau 9/7/11. Dropping the “b” from bomb, btw, has its pedigree in doing so with UNABOM a few years earlier. SecDef himself, to add to the intrigue, contradicts FBI’s tip-off of the actual mode of initiating the TT column/bear demo by twice saying the Pentagon was hit by a missile.

          For good ol’ boy Trey, however, Mueller (who’s such a patriot Fox News says it’s OK for us—as distinct from the “us” Q refers to—to refer to him as “Bob”) is not just honest, but that quintessence of honesty, a “straight arrow.” To be fair, memers of Congress are briefed, not to inform them, but to silence them with top secret confidentiality regarding what’s bs to begin with.

    Why the move at this particular time? IDK. But I agree with Dr. Eowyn that, as a Federal prosecutor, he may be better suited to DOJ or along those lines than as a SCOTUS Justice.

    But before he leaves, President Trump would do well to PICK HIS BRAIN.

  19. Trey is a uniparty rat. Plain and simple. The rats are leaving the swamp. Repubs have been in power of the House since Jan 2011 and have accomplished ZERO. If Trey was up against the “establishment” and put up the “good fight” but “had his hands tied” why would the same “establishment” place him in positions of importance? Simple, controlled opposition. He may very well get a job as a DA but he coild also be running for the hill.
    Interestingly, Ryan flies to Saudi last week to look at the counter terror brain center opened earlier this year. He comes back and says the memo and all information within it should be released. Trey sets down…
    Is it possible this brain center is actually being run by the good guys smoking out the bad guys in the government? Just my opinion.

    At this point, witnessing the unprecedented actions of desperation (to block the memo), I would not be surprised in the slightest to see an “event” occur tonight or more likely tomorrow AM to bury the memo in the news cycle.

    Whether it takes shape as a shooting, plane crash, actions by North Korea or other terrorist event, I am at the point where I believe nothing is too far for them to go. It’s saddening to even consider such things.

    Anyway, a memo info, analysis and update thread might be useful.

Those allegations in the article are pretty specific, esp. the financial ties. Fake news is generally more nebulous and general. Someone who is a true sleuth and had the time could probably verify this dirt on Gowdy. For me,I think he is just one more swamp creature that suckered us with a good show. The fact is when anyone honest really starts making a difference they end up like Cicero.
