House GOP taps Rep. Gowdy for oversight committee chairman

House GOP taps Rep. Gowdy for oversight committee chairman

The Republican Steering Committee has elected Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., to serve as the next chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

If the full GOP conference confirms the South Carolina Republican, he will take over the investigation into President Trump's decision to fire James Comey.

"With his background as a proven prosecutor, he will make an excellent chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and I commend the Steering Committee on their selection". As the new chairman, he will lead oversight of the Trump administration, including a budding investigation into possible ties between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's campaign.

Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor and state solicitor, is used to navigating controversial and politically dicey waters. "The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has jurisdiction in a variety of areas as outlined in the Rules of the House for the 115th Congress".

Trey Gowdy has been selected Thursday to be the next chairman of the House oversight committee, the powerful entity charged with providing oversight over the White House and administration.

The former prosecutor is best known for his role leading the House select committee that investigated the 2012 attack on the USA consulate in Benghazi.

Gowdy has also clashed with Trump, although he later served on Trump's transition team.

Gowdy, in a statement, focused on committee's institutional responsibilities and made no mention of specific lines of inquiry.

Sanfor was, like many others, originally skeptical that Gowdy would agree to seek the position despite leadership's urging: His distaste for Washington is no secret and there's been wide speculation he would prefer to hold out for a seat on the bench. Rep. Steve Russell (R., Okla.) had also put his name in for consideration to replace Chaffetz.

"Trey Gowdy possesses the experience and deep commitment to transparency and accountability necessary to be the House's next Oversight chairman", Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said in a statement.
