Fiery South Carolina Republican House member Trey Gowdy is reportedly considering a move up the Congressional ladder.
The Daily Caller is reporting that Gowdy is considering running for the chairmanship of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which will see its current chairman, Jason Chaffetz, ending his tenure in June.
According to a quoted official interviewed by the Daily Caller, “Rep. Gowdy is talking to members in the conference about the qualities they believe are most important for the next Chairman to possess.”
The Washington Free Beacon reports that Gowdy has lobbied his fellow Representatives in a search for support and has supposedly received a ringing endorsement from fellow Republicans.
As chairman of the committee, Gowdy would have a direct role in shaping how the House conducted the oversight of the executive branch and would supervise the investigations into the many fake scandals besieging President Trump.
The new role developed, the Free Beacon says, after Gowdy turned down Attorney Jeff Sessions’ request that he head up the FBI.
