Congressman Trey Gowdy, South Carolina (R) and Chairman Of The GOP oversight, took to Twitter this afternoon officially announce that he will not be seeking re-election. Instead, he will retire from Congress, and possibly head for a position in the Justice System.
Gowdy’s departure and announcement of a possible return to the Justice System could mean a number of things. No one really knows for certain. It’s not even clear if Gowdy knows why he’s leaving politics or what he will do after he leaves. That didn’t stop people from forming their own opinions though.
There are wide ranging opinions and theories floating around, but nobody really knows the reason for Gowdy’s sudden departure from politics except for him….maybe. It will be interesting to watch and see what all of these “retirements” from GOP members really mean though. I’m sure we will see what is really going on later in the year. Buckle up people. It’s looking like 2018 is going to be a wild ride.
