I guess it should come as no surprise to anyone that the internet is going crazy over the possibility that Trey Gowdy be appointed to head the FBI. It should come as no surprise that conservative pundits want Trey Gowdy at the head of the FBI. It does come as a surprise that one democrat is not only saying he would vote for Gowdy, actually endorsed Gowdy as the best man for the job.
Bakari Sellers, a former Democrat State House member from South Carolina said:
“Dems are going to hate me for this. I don’t care. The best replacement for Comey is Trey Gowdy. He’s as honest as day is long.”
President Donald Trump shocked the nation Tuesday by firing FBI Director James Comey, largely due 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.
According to Independent Journal Review, many people on the right let out a cheer, as they have been waiting for Comey to be fired 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.
However, among the celebrations and grievous outcries percolating on the Internet, one name consistently drew mention as the top potential replacement as head of the FBI, that being Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, a veritable rock-star in conservative circles.
