Retiring Congressman Trey Gowdy Might Be Heading To The Supreme Court? Here’s How It Could Happen

Last month Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) who serves on the House Committees on Intelligence, Ethics, Oversight and Government Reform, and Judiciary, announced he would not be running for re-election to the House.

Gowdy wrote: “I will not be filing for re-election to Congress nor seeking any other political or elected office; instead I will be returning to the justice system. Whatever skills I may have are better utilized in a courtroom than in Congress, and I enjoy our justice system more than our political system. As I look back on my career, it is the jobs that both seek and reward fairness that are most rewarding.”

Gowdy was true and honest which is rare in politics! He is a hard-working, honest person and goes after all the corruption. He is all about truth and justice no matter what.

No doubt he would make a great Supreme Court Justice. He definitely has the intellect for the job!!!

But, in the end…Whatever he becomes he deserves it.


If Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), a good friend of Gowdy’s, has anything to say about it, Gowdy’s post-retirement plans may find their way to the Supreme Court.

Scott revealed in an interview with CNN’s Van Jones over the weekend that he plans to recommend Gowdy to be one of the candidates President Donald Trump considers to fill the upcoming Supreme Court vacancy.

“I’m going to recommend Trey Gowdy be one of the folks that I would have a strong recommendation for him serving on the Supreme Court. I hope that the President will be open to that recommendation,” Scott said, according to CNN.

“A guy who will call balls and strikes and not choose a side, even when he’s an elected member, at this time in our nation’s history that’s hard to find,” he explained.

When asked for comment by the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, Gowdy declined to say whether or not he is interested in filling Kennedy’s seat.

“Senator Scott and I share more than a bond of friendship, we share a passion for a justice system that is both respected and worthy of respect. To earn the respect of someone with the character and integrity of Senator Tim Scott is one of the highlights of my professional career,” Gowdy said.

Do you think Gowdy would make an amazing Supreme Court Justice?
