Trey Gowdy Is Counting Down The Number Of Flights He Has Left Until He Can Leave D.C. For Good (HBO)

South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy is retiring from Congress an unhappy man. He’s even counting the number of trips to the airport he has left until he can leave DC for good.

“[T]o the extent men judge themselves based on what they do for a living, I don’t have a lot to show for the last seven years,” the departing Congressman told VICE News.

Among the most prominent members to be elected as part of the Tea Party wave in 2010, Gowdy gained national notoriety as a fiercely partisan interrogator of Hillary Clinton following the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

He said he doesn’t relish the reputation, or think it’s justified. And it’s helped drive him out of Congress.

But at least he made some friends along the way.

  1. Trey gowdy has come to realize that corruption in our gov is so big that theres no way in hell to ever clean it up.he tried,he gave his best but got no where.nothing,no one ever goes to jail.sickening.the only ones who ever do go to prison are the innocent or the ones set up to take the fall or be the patsey.plain as day.

  2. This is the result of a good man going to DC to try and make things better but instead he recognizes that there is no hope or help in that direction and now one of the only good politicans is going home for good. How Sad

  3. This guy is flawed when observed through conservative patriots lenses.
    His claim of excess partisanship is all you need to know of his scant value.
    Dems have embraced a Satanic political agenda. Abortion, open borders, govt mandates, porn, drugs,
    sodomy, obstructionism, illegal immigration, …et al are Dem values
    & the UNACCEPTABLE agenda FOR DEBATE. Goodbye & good riddance.

  4. It's comical that so many redumblican pleebs don't want to face the cold hard truth that Gowdy and Devin Nunes worked together to draft his memo. That's why Nunes wouldn't answer questions about working with the white house, and specifically with Trey Gowdy. He pretends to be this super clean cut guy, but is just a cheap defense lawyer that will now leave with his head down and go back to being a lawyer barker for some firm for millions I'm sure. This is what is wrong with the republican party, they vote on who yells the loudest, and believe them to be honest and true.

  5. God I wish he'd run for president. That Mark Levin guy is a complete moron for his comments on Trey. Trey he is one of the most intelligent people I've ever seen. And how the hell could Trump say he's a loser? He destroyed Hillary in the Benghazi hearings. I'm confused, though. The guy says "hyperpartisan" and Trey says "democrat for sure." He has to mean partisan against democrats because he's a republican, otherwise I don't understand lol.

  6. jmo but if this superior legal and political minded person, Sen. Trey Gowdy to be clear, finds for himself that US politics are not worth him participating in because one person cannot make a difference….and he'd rather go away to his home base…that is a terribly sad and disappointing statement on the state of US politics in DC and in this country. God will have to help us if this honorable and judicial based man has given up fighting for whats right…for us… let that settle in people… how many other members of the US House and Senate will feel as well that they cannot make a difference…and ..just..go..home..

  7. Trey Gowdy got me interested in senate politics, I will miss him and his intellegent, and thorough attempts at finding truth in a quagmire of ugly politics… we will miss you Trey, and look up to you long after you are out of the spotlight.
    "We work for a blindfolded woman, who holds a set of scales…"
    May you find happiness in your upcoming years.

  8. For people not understanding him leaving there is a quote that i feel explains…….“He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.” Friedrich Nietzsche"…….Totally understandable not wanting to have your soul tainted any more than absolutely necessary by the evil that resides in Washington…..Thank you, Mr Gowdy for your service and for being there when America need you the most…..

  9. I can’t believe that Trey Gowdy is leaving before the Benghazi investigation is complete. There have been no indictments yet although the evidence clearly shows that the Clinton Foundation murdered these 4 American heroes.

  10. Corruption runs deep in DC if this law loving constitutionalist that gave up 8 years of his life gives up. Much respect Mr. Gowdy you are among few that fought for our constitutional laws and liberties. I would vote for him to be POTUS!

  11. The fact that a person like this gives up and says 'this place is too ineffective and self-serving' should be a sufficient proof of how fucked up the government is and that our country has been abducted by the government. People don't matter, rights don't matter, even economy is rigged. It's the 1%ers playing a game and everyone else is just an animal on their toy farm.
