Our intelligence community can surely use a steady trusted hand to help.
Looks like it may be getting it.
From Biz Pac Review:
In what some may see as an encouraging sign of intelligence being ushered in by the incoming Trump administration, U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy has been named to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
The South Carolina Republican, popular with the conservative wing of the GOP, was chair of the Select Committee on Benghazi and will now be tasked with the oversight of the United States intelligence community in his new committee.
There are few people who are more incisive, more able to call it as it is than Trey Gowdy.
When you listen to him, you hear the voice of someone who still believes in being a public servant and believes in his legal obligations.
“Protecting the safety and security of our fellow citizens is the preeminent function of government,” Gowdy said in a statement, according to The Greenville News. “When it comes to our national security, we cannot afford to take risks.
Gowdy was appointed to by GOP House leaders. He will continue to serve on three other committees: ethics, oversight and government reform and judiciary.
People were definitely liking the choice.
