GOP Representative Trey Gowdy is retiring from Congress at the end of his current term and said in a new interview that he considers himself “a pretty lousy politician.” He also offered a reason why he is retiring, but that reason is a cover story, as we shall explore.
“My wife hates it when I say this, but I was a pretty good prosecutor, I think. But I’ve been a pretty lousy politician,” Gowdy told CBS’s Face the Nation, “So I’ve done it for seven years. I’m really grateful for the opportunity to do it, but it’s time for me to — whatever time I’ve got left — I want to spend it in the justice system because that’s where my heart is.”
So we are to believe that Trey Gowdy, who spearheaded the Hillary Clinton-Benghazi conspiracy theory, just suddenly decided he did not want be a politician anymore? This is not random, there is a reason.
It turns out that in the wake of the release of Nunes’ debunked memo, Gowdy has been revealed to be the only Republican on the House Intelligence Committee who has seen the actual FISA warrant applications, the same FISA warrants Nunes has not seen.
After seeing the FISA warrants, the center of all this memo controversy, Gowdy has declared that the memo does not discredit special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling and any ties to Trump associates.
Gowdy is also going out of his way to state that the FISA warrants would not have been granted or extended without the dossier. The message he is clearly sending, is that the FISA warrants AND at least parts of the dossier are legitimate. Because again, he also clearly stated that Nunes’ memo does NOT discredit Mueller’s investigation.

Trey Gowdy is leaving Congress to save his legacy, because after seeing the actual FISA warrants that Nunes has not, he realized the truth about Mueller’s investigation; it’s real and it’s legitimate. He sees what is coming and he does not want to be near the center of the storm that is coming.
