Gowdy Is Not Running For A Position In The FBI!
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., says he’s stepping away from President Trump’s quest for a new FBI director.
As reported by Washington Examiner, Gowdy spoke about his decision in a Monday release, stating he shared with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, “my firm conviction that I would not be the right person,” to manage the bureau. He had two meetings with Sessions in the past three days.
The fourth-term congressman is famous for his prosecutorial rhetoric when questioning witnesses in front of the panels such as the House Intelligence Committee, on which Gowdy serves at the moment.
Many spread rumors that the active Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, ex congressman and Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Mike Rogers of Michigan is running. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, also seems to be the focal option and has been interviewed by Sessions for the position.
Back on Saturday, while on the Air Force, President Trump said to reporters that his administration intended to have made a decision for the position by the end of the week.
At the same time, more Democrats are demanding an independent prosecutor due to the fact the president’s dismissed ex director Jim Comey, and two Democrats in the House have called for President Trump impeachment.
“Our country and the women and men of the FBI deserve a Director with not only impeccable credentials but also one who can unite the country as we strive for justice and truth,” Gowdy stated within his release. “I am confident that person will emerge.”
