Rep. Trey Gowdy won't seek reelection, plans to return to justice system

UNITED STATES- OCTOBER 26 Rep. Trey Gowdy R-S.C. left leaves the Capitol after the House passed a fiscal 2018 budget resolution Tom Williams CQ-Roll Call Group

"This is the right time, for me, to leave politics and return to the justice system", the 53-year-old SC chairman of the House Oversight Committee tweeted.

Gowdy is chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee and previously chaired a highly partisan panel investigating the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.

In a statement, Gowdy said he plans to leave politics altogether to return to working in the justice system. He also serves on the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees. As I look back on my career, it is the jobs that both seek and reward fairness that are most rewarding. "All are needed for those in public service".

In announcing that he's quitting, Gowdy (who formerly worked as a federal prosecutor) immediately became one of the most high-profile members of Congress to decide against running for re-election later this year, and became yet another Republican committee member to leave his post. "There is a time to start and a time to end", he added.

The book of Ecclesiastes teaches us there is a time and a season for all things.

"There is no flawless time to make this announcement", Gowdy added.

Gowdy is the tenth GOP committee chairman to head for the exit this cycle. During his first term, Gowdy sided with Tea Party conservatives in opposing spending and debt ceiling bills negotiated with Democrats. He has played a leading role in the committee's investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Though he didn't say what job in the "justice system" he might pursue, there's an opening for a judge on the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, which has jurisdiction over SC.
