We’ve waited enough for this moment. It was about time for Trump to list the members of his cabinet, and we’ll gladly support his choice.

What would the media say about this? Well, it doesn’t really matter, since the Republican nominee sure got the support of America. However, is the nomination of Trey Gowdy as Attorney General a smart move?

One of the things that many Trump supporters have advocated is for the candidate to start naming his cabinet appointments early, so as to quell any concerns people may still have regarding his judgment. Naming key members of his cabinet early would create an “army” of heavyweight surrogates the media would glom on to.
One person who really should be considered for the position of United States Attorney General is US Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), a seasoned federal prosecutor, and a fearless advocate for the US Constitution and the rule of law. While others have been supposed for this position, simply listening to Gowdy intellectually disembowel a witness before any one of the congressional committees on which he sits leads the viewer to quietly cheer when he ends his questioning. To say he is a judicial and constitutional pit bull would be accurate.
Gowdy is a cited Conservative and marched into Washington as one of the stars of the TEA Party wave that saw the country make a move toward returning our nation to constitutionalism. In an age where precedent law makes a mockery of the Constitution, appointing an Attorney General who holds it above all else would be a refreshing and necessary change.
Before he was elected to the US House of Representatives to represent South Carolina’s Fourth Congressional District, Gowdy was the elected district attorney for the state’s Seventh Judicial Circuit. This covered the regions comprising Spartanburg and Cherokee Counties. After that, from 1994 to 2000, he was a federal prosecutor for the US Attorney for the District of South Carolina.
Today, Gowdy is a noted and, dare I say feared, member of Congress whose prosecutorial style of questioning committee witnesses – both cooperative and not – has earned him a reputation as a thorough, studied, and aggressive investigator and advocate for the American people.
Gowdy sits on an assortment of congressional committees, two as chairman. These committees include: the Committee on Ethics; the Committee on the Judiciary; the Judicial Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security (of which he is chairman); the Judicial Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security & Investigations; the Committee on Oversight & Government Reform, the Oversight & Reform Subcommittee on Health Care, Benefits & Administrative Rules; the Oversight & Reform Subcommittee on Government Operations; and in 2014 Gowdy was named as chairman of the Select Committee on the Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi.
As a member of the House Judicial Committee he grilled US Attorney General Loretta Lynch for her grotesque dereliction of duty to bring Hillary Clinton up on indictment for her intentional mishandling of classified information.
In questioning a witness who tried to inject “race” as a reason for why Republicans on one committee voted a certain way on a pre-dated issue, Gowdy rightly slapped the witness down, calling her out of the gratuitous use of the “race card.”
In questioning a witness on the availability of video evidence from the night of the Benghazi assassinations of four US diplomatic personnel – prior to the formation of the special committee – Gowdy staunchly reminded the witness that the authority of Congress solidly outweighs the authority of other investigative bodies.
He has grilled FBI Director James Comey on the non-indictment indictment of Hillary Clinton, Obamacare co-architect Jonathan Gruber for the collusion in creating the Affordable Care Act, and Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards on abuse of funding and the sale of fetal body parts, and on and on and on…
In each case, Gowdy has demonstrated a fidelity to the rule of law and a devotion to the United States Constitution. These are characteristics that are desirable in a US Attorney General. And they differ greatly from the politicized ideologies of the two most recent Attorney Generals: Loretta Lynch and Eric Holder.
We could hope for the best, otherwise our support won’t mean a thing. When it comes to Gowdy, let’s just say that he sure is an ‘interesting’ pick. You’d all agree, his trials are more than admiring.
