Chairman Gowdy And His Team

Email Email Print

The Select Committee on the Investigation of the Benghazi attacks could be announced by the time the show begins today, and most folks hope Trey Gowdy is indeed its Chair.

As discussed here, the rest of the GOP membership should draw heavily on the experienced prosecutors and other sort of sharp lawyers and warriors in their midst, which means that Mike Pompeo and Ron DeSantis should be alongside Gowdy, as well as some connectors to leadership like Devin Nunes.  Pete Sessions’ name came up this morning and he is as well wired as anyone into the leadership and fearless as well of the inevitable attacks from the POTUS-protecting Manhattan-Beltway media elite, the young social media cynics  and the rabid left.  Quite a few folks who failed in their jobs in September and October 2012 will be in a hurry to ignore or dismiss the work of the Select Committee so it has to be of the finest quality and staffed by the best layers and communicators available and there are many at hand.  Chairman Gowdy should insist on a free hand in picking his team and should not hobble himself by hiring friends or friends-of-friends-of-friends like David Schippers who clearly was overwhelmed by the impeachment circus of the ’90s.

Finding a team with the necessary back ground checks and clearances at least already partially done or in place to allow a running start is crucial, and finding folks comfortable with the new 24/7 media environment is an absolute necessity.  Hopefully by the time the program begins today we will know some of the key names.  Too much time has already been wasted, and too many documents allowed to be buried to move at D.C. speed any longer.
