Trey Gowdy announced his resignation in a way that shocked many people. However, the mainstream media jumped to ugly theories right away. Gowdy released a letter of resignation from the House Ethics Committee.
“Accordingly, I tender my resignation from the House Ethics Committee pending your designation of a replacement. Thank you again for this opportunity and thank you to my colleagues on the Committee for their hard work and friendship,” Gowdy said. Gowdy explained that he quit because of all the other assignments he had.
“When I became Chairperson of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform I knew I would not be able to keep all other committee assignments to include Judiciary, Intelligence and Ethics. Four committee assignments, including a Chairmanship, is a challenging workload,” said added.
However, the media had much uglier ideas, including MSNBC contributor Scott Dworkin. “Trey Gowdy has resigned from the House Ethics Cmte! REPEAT Trey Gowdy has resigned from the House Ethics Cmte! Maybe it has to do with him taking bribes from anti-Hillary groups while leading the failed Benghazi witch hunt. Or just being a corrupt Republican in general. Adios,” tweeted Dworkin.
