Newly Elected Oversight Panel Chair Trey Gowdy Declares End to Trump “Witch Hunts”

(AmericanLookout) Following the resignation of Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), Trey Gowdy (R-SC) assumed the role of House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman.  Gowdy has already declared that he will not waste taxpayer money on wild goose chases designed to undermine President Trump.
Politico reports:

Newly-elected House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy does not plan to investigate Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election or questions of whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.

The South Carolina Republican told a gathering of reporters Friday that he instead wants to return the Oversight panel to its original “compulsory” jurisdiction, including overseeing more mundane issues like government procurement and the Census.
