The news of firing the Fbi Direktor, James Comey, has come as a shock to the American nation. President Trump fired Comey due to his to his unprofessional handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation as well as some of his public statements in congressional hearings on that and other matters.
As Independent Journal Review informs, many people on the right let out a cheer as they have been waiting for Comey’s fire since he let Clinton off the hook in the summer of 2016.
Meanwhile, Democrats who up until Tuesday were vehemently calling for Comey’s ouster due to his alleged sabotage of Clinton’s campaign just before November’s election, were suddenly backing Comey to the hilt, newly outraged that such a shining example of an impartial lawman could be fired so ingloriously.
Despite the celebrations and grievous outcries percolating on the Internet, the name of Trey Gowdy, a veritable rock-star in conservative circles, constantly connects as the most potential replacement as head of FBI.
It has been listed by the Associated Press that among Gowdy there are three more top potential candidates for the Corey’s replacement. NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly, Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.
While there are certainly pros and cons to any of those others mentioned, the former South Carolina prosecutor who has gained prominence in Congress by chairing the Benghazi Select Committee investigation as well as grilling countless bureaucrats who appeared before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, seems a logical choice.
If Gowdy is to be the next FBI director he would make quite a formidable team with with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in correspondence with the Trump’s agenda of re-instituting law and order and respect for the rule of law, something that has been lacking over the past eight years.
According to the “State” Suprising is the fact that Gowdy is gaining a support across the political aisle, albeit from his home state, as a South Carolina Democrat just let it be known that he would fully support Gowdy to head up the FBI, as he is a straight shooter and thoroughly honest man.
“Dems are going to hate me for this. I don’t care. The best replacement for Comey is Trey Gowdy,” tweeted Bakari Sellers, a former Democrat State House member from South Carolina. “He’s as honest as day is long.”
Of course, little is known who will Trump decide to appoint as the new head director of FBI but we certainly believe that Gowdy will be excellent for the position.
Please, President Trump, Trey Gowdy.
