Trey Gowdy stands up for what’s right and goes after what’s wrong! He is one of the few who can bring back justice to our country!
He is a warrior fighting to keep our constitution alive! This guy understands what it means to be elected by the people and that he works for all Americans. It’s nice to know there are some people who care for us and our loved ones.
Today after the offcial announcement made by Paul Ryan that he will not run again Trey Gowdy gave an interview and reminded everyone that the Speaker of the House does not need to actually be a sitting congressman.
The Constitution dictates “the House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers,” but it does not stipulate that you have to be a sitting member of Congress to run for the leadership position. Gowdy conveniently pointed that out at the end of his statement on Speaker Paul Ryan’s decision not to seek re-election at the end of his term.
After calling Ryan the “smartest kid in the class” and wishing him his wife and their three children “all the best,” the South Carolina Republican addressed “those within Congress who always seemed to have a better idea or a smarter strategy, now is your chance to run for Speaker.”
“To those outside of Congress who always seemed to have a better idea or a smarter strategy,” he added. “You do not have to be a member of the House to be Speaker of the House and hence, now is your chance to run for Speaker.”
Paul Ryan made the official announcement at 10:15 AM Eastern.
Paul Ryan: I gave this job everything I had. The truth is it’s easy for it to take over everything in your life. Today I am announcing that this year is my last year as a member of the House… It’s almost hard to believe but I have been a member of Congress for two decades… I will be setting new priorities in my life… I’m really proud of what we’ve been able to do… Our two biggest achievements – tax cuts and second to build our nation’s military. These I see as lasting victories… I want to be clear I’m not done yet… I believe its future is bright… I tried to bring as much Wisconsin to Congress as possible…
