Donald Trump is taking the 2016 Presidential campaign by storm! Trump, who would be a bold defender of conservative principles in the White House, announced on Twitter who is pick for Attorney General is.
His choice is South Carolina conservative Rep. Trey Gowdy (R), who continues to Chair the U.S. House of Representative’s Select Committee on Benghazi. Gowdy has been a consistent thorn in the side of the Obama administration, exposing the White House’s incompetence on issues ranging from amnesty, IRS abuses, and the illegal deletion of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.
As Trump tweeted, “@HillaryClinton’s toast. Dems had better get the”B Team” off the bench. @TGowdySC for Attorney General under President Trump.”
“@USARestoring: @HillaryClinton‘s toast. Dems had better get the”B Team” off the bench. @TGowdySC for Attorney General under President Trump

This wasn’t long after Trump announced he would also want former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to accept his position in his Cabinet.
Clearly, Donald Trump is willing to build a “dream team” of influential conservative leaders who know how to fight for limited government and defeat liberals. Trey Gowdy and Donald Trump share a common tough, no-nonsense style. And as Gowdy is a talented former prosecutor, he is very qualified for the appointment!

I absolutely hope The Don does indeed appoint Trey Gowdy as Attorney General!
I am hopeful Trey Gowdy will go after Hillary, Barry Soetoro and Eric Holder with a revenge. There is no way these sleazeballs should not be indicted and prosecuted for treason and murder.
a true patriot. The Legend Trey “Pitbull” Gowdy for the next Attorney General in a Trump administration. i support this. We need Trump and Gowdy to clean up CORRUPT government and a corrupt mainstream media.
Gowdy will lock up that criminal Hillary Rotten Clinton if she lives that long. With Hillary zoning out during here speeches and consistently having seizures caught on camera, coughing like a heavy smoker and she can hardly walk. I predict she will not see January 2017. Billy Bob Clinton also is looking medically bad. They both need to make an appointment with Hospice. I agree Trey and Donald will make an exceptional team. If the Clinton’s are still around the need to be prosecuted and shown they are not above the law. Hillary is medically unfit to be President not to mention the corruption baggage she brings with her. Hillary for Prison! Trump for President!
WHAT A TEAM YIPPEE:
A good pirate will need a larger brig so Gowdy has plenty of room to lock up the bad pirates. hehehhe. yeah, Donald, you know what I am thinking. Go get em.
Great choice! Go Trump! get rid of all those corrupt lying politicians and get some good people in there!!…clean house please!!!!!!!
I think it would be great Gowdy is awesome. I think he is very intelligent and the way he questions people they can’t get anything past him. I can’t wait to see a change in government and hopefully let’s start taking care of Americans before anyone else.
Outstanding! Gowdy needs to accept the challenge. America needs him.
Awesome choice Trey Gowdy for Att. General / Surgeon General Dr. Ben Carson / V.P. Palin or Rubio / also use Herman Cane some where he is a good man.. Please don’t use Cruz anywhere…
Now Rubio as VP and if you can talk to Cruz – appoint to the Supreme Court
There will be plenty of new blood on the Cabinet and other advisors.
Gowdy was held back and stymied in many of his attempts, give him the power and see what happens.
terrible. horrible. sad.
Update: December 26, 2015 Trey Gowdy endorses establishment candidate Marco Rubio. December 27, 2015 Donald Trump calls Trey Gowdy’s Behngazi Hearings a “Total Disaster”. Video http://bit.ly/1MBZvRg
The Lone Star says; DITTO!
Gowdy and Palin? What a way to lose this election. Gowdy has proven to be a do nothing, all talk congressman, and Palins time has come and gone. I thought maybe Trump would look for some new blood to help fix this country, but I guess I was wrong. I hope his pick for VP is better thought out.
I think that would be everyone’s choice!
Absolutely perfect, especially with Sara on board, they will make America great again.
Perfect choice. Exactly what America Needs. They will compliment each other
PERFECT CHOICE. ANOTHER FIGHTER FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. EXACTLY WHAT WE NEED THEY WILL COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER
I believe it is absolutely a honorable and precise pick for a define job as Attorney Gerneral. It would be an honor.
Absolutely love Trey Gowdy! Doesn’t let people sidestep questions and moves on. He will wait all day for an answer and I love it. I would hate to face him in court, especially if I was guilty. It would be awesome to build a dream team for the government. I totally trust Mr. Gowdy, anyone who doesn’t can’t provide anything to support why they don’t.
He picks his dream team during primary and his chances of wining are that much better. I love what I am seeing.
I would also like to see him pick Ted Cruz as his V.P. Cruz is also another no nonsense guy and is not a PC Senator and tells it like it is. A pick for Surgeon General no other than Dr. Ben Carson.
Couldn’t have picked better people to surround him. This is only the beginning Go Trump, go.
That is the best news I’ve heard in YEARS! He will definitely CLEAN HOUSE!!! Love Gowdy! I could see Palin as Sec of Energy. Bet she would have America energy independent in no time!!! Drill baby, drill! And dig that COAL!!!
LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! The man knows what he is doing.
I absolutely support Donald’s choices. Ans I support Donald as Number One as well.
I think the Donald’s choice is right on. He should also consider another no nonsense guy from Virginia Ken Cuccinelli, who would bring in a lot of votes from his home State.
Yes, the political status quo needs to be shaken up. Liberals and progressive democrats have made a mess of everything they have touched. Time for truth and real justice to prevail.
Each day I’m liking Trump more & more.
I sure hope others are Too.
This dream team is EXACTLY what the country needs to undo all that this administration has done.
I have said from time one I wish he would get Trey Gowdy as his A.G. Wow Talk about a Dream Team!
WHEN, and I say WHEN Donald Trump gets elected ………he can hold Hillary and Obama responsible for their crimes. We all look forward to that!!!!! Go Trump, GO
Trey Gowdy would make an incredible AG. We have so few honest, decent, patriotic lawmakers these days, but Gowdy is all three.
This is what we need! Fearless leadership! I love it!
Absolutely!!! We as Americans need this to help build our great country!
Trump is a Genius. Trey Gowdy will prosecute every rotten Rhino scandal and put the lying politians in jail. I am thrilled beyond belief that Donald has come “at such a time as this” (Book of Ester kjv)
Trump for President !
Save a seat for Judge Andrew Napolitano on the U.S Supreme Court, and Sarah Paling for Home Land Security!
Thew Dems pay people to post contrarian comments on these conservative lists. Looks like this dude is using a list of key points they gave him. He is probably too deep into the nose candy to pay atttention to politics so he needs a crib sheet.
Marilyn, very well said.
Trump is not a career politician. He is a business man who knows the right people needed to get the job done, yet is beholden to none. When people give you money they expect something in return. Trump does not need their money and, I believe he loves this country and wants to try to save it. Donald Trump would lose, more than he would gain, by serving as President of the United States, so I truly believe he is putting country before self.
This is laughable on many levels. First the only thing Donald Trump is going to pick is himself off the floor. Secondly, Trey Gowdy and the cons have done nothing but waste millions of hard earned tax payer dollars for nothing on their ridiculous witch hunts. Today’s republican party is the biggest embarrassment & an most inept Party in American history. They’d be doing themselves a favor if they just went ahead and bled out and ended their miserable existence.
Excellent Choice!! Mr. Gowdy stands for truth, honesty, and the people. You don’t get deception and corruption from this man!
Smart choice for “The Donald”! I live in SC and we here all love Trey Gowdy and what he’s doing as the lead Chair in the Benghazi investigations. He’s supposed to get another interview with Hillary on her neverending obscured career in the State Dept. whom I think she is the most vile of all people, even worse than Obama, as she LIED about those emails, and she LIED at her first hearing with the congressional committee (“What difference does it make”!) as she likely LIED to Amb. Chris Stevens who requested more support in Benghazi. I’ve got an entire panel discussion pamphlet from Judicial Watch group, a non-profit org., with Tom Fitton (founder/CEO) whom along with 3 other educated panelists gave their reviews of this email scam of hers and evidence that she may just be held in contempt and liable for her dealings in what she did about Benghazi…..those 4 who had to die at the hands of this administration need to be “vindicated”, as Tom Fitton expressed in this panel discussion, and what Hillary did as Sec. of State during that murdering of Amb. Stevens and the Marines who gave their lives to save others, she’s just in a deep heap of trouble! But Trump is absolutely right about her! He CAN and WILL over-TRUMP her! That is why they are attacking him because they are running SCARED of him because they KNOW he can beat them! He FIGHTS while the other candidates just “him-haw” around and hob-knob with their elites as they try to “out-trump” the Trump, but they can’t! And they KNOW it and THEY are scared of it as well! Just one suggestion for Donald…..keep fighting back being yourself, but start acting “Presidential” about all of it, stay firm with your fighting words; get a little cozy with your state’s GOP Chairman, go to their meetings, go to local and GOPs conventions and meetings and let it be known that you still maintain your conservatism and Republican party stance. I’m still with you, Donald, but the race is on and we just got another one coming in making it 17 candidates and they will start attacking you as much as the Dems are going to use their attack ads at you. Keep the course, stay firm and look like you really want to be our President!
Ron Paul would be the excellent choice. This is really happening! A bright spot in a dark cavern.
Cruz is my guy now but Trump is growing on me! I do not like Trump personally but I believe he could put a wonderful cabinet together. He could appoint Ron Paul to Fed Chairman, his charge would be to faze the FED out and return the power and responsibility to the legislature where it belongs. He could do the same with all but the few of the departments and programs the Federal Government is empowered to be involved in under the limited powers enumerated in the Constitution.
