Now that Donald Trump has officially been sworn in as America’s 45th president, he needs all the help in Congress he can get, and he may have just received that help.
Conservative hero Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) just made a big 2017 announcement. He will start the year as a new member of the House Intelligence Committee!
As Gowdy noted, “Protecting the safety and security of our fellow citizens is the preeminent function of government.” And “when it comes to our national security, we cannot afford to take risks.”
Looking forward to joining the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Full statement here → pic.twitter.com/PUET9HaJcL

The committee has been around for 4 decades and handles classified information that is also managed by 17 federal agencies. This means Gowdy will be front-and-center as Republicans get to the bottom of the “Russian hacking” claims made by Hillary Clinton’s campaign team to cover up their criminally incompetent email security.
Conservatives are thrilled about Gowdy’s new job!
@TGowdySC Congratulations Mr. Gowdy on your appointment to the intelligence committee, a better choice could not have been made!!

Remember how Gowdy interrogated FBI Director James Comey?
And he is an expert at grilling Hillary Clinton and exposing her lies:
As you can see (below), Gowdy has absolutely no patience for stupid questions:
