Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., is stepping down from his role on the House Ethics Committee, citing a "challenging workload" as the reason for his departure.

Gowdy informed House Speaker Paul Ryan of his decision in a letter on Jan. 10, the details of which were not made public until Saturday. The South Carolina Republican was tapped to lead the House Oversight Committee last June, after the former chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, left Congress for a job at Fox News.

"When I became Chairperson of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, I knew I would not be able to keep all other committee assignments to include Judiciary, Intelligence, and Ethics," Gowdy wrote.

The former prosecutor was the only lawmaker serving four separate committee assignments when he stepped down from the Ethics panel last week.
Another lib nothingburger.

Yawn..................

Wait until he's sitting in front of the same committee next year trying to explain why he shouldn't be expelled from Congress. Or worse.

Did you think that was for free, and there would be no repercussions for it?

If it's not a crime it's damn sure grounds for being expelled from Congress for the most egregious violations of ethics.

And it's damn sure a gross violation of the oaths of office to faithfully execute the laws of the country.

Republicans are the lowest forms of life there is in this country. Everything we teach our children not to be.
