Liberals are flexing their skills at crafting improbable conspiracy theories after the news that Trey Gowdy is resigning from the House Ethics Committee.
In a letter to Paul Ryan, Gowdy says it’s too much of a workload:
Gowdy letter to Ryan: I tender my resignation from the House Ethics Committee pending your designation of a replacement..Thank you again for this opportunity and thank you to my colleagues on the Committee for their hard work and friendship.— Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) January 13, 2018
Commence lib freak out:
Trey Gowdy has resigned from the House Ethics Cmte!— Scott Dworkin (@funder) January 13, 2018
Trey Gowdy has resigned from the House Ethics Cmte!
Maybe it has to do with him taking bribes from anti-Hillary groups while leading the failed Benghazi witch hunt. Or just being a corrupt Republican in general. Adios.
Why is Trey Gowdy resigning from the Ethics Committee?— (((Huxenstein))) (@BethGoldHux) January 13, 2018
Why did Jason Chaffetz resign from Congress?
Why is Paul Ryan protecting that toady Devin Nunes?
I’d bet my bottom dollar the answers to all 3 questions are connected.
🔥Trey #Gowdy submitted his letter of resignation from House Ethics on Friday.🤔
Unlike other committees, Ethics has an *EQUAL* number of Rs & Ds. If Gowdy faced an ethics probe, he'd have to RECUSE👉🏼Cmte would have a Democratic advantage.🤨
IS THIS WHY HE RESIGNED⁉️ pic.twitter.com/5Xjp0kFin0

Captain Obvious here, but there's a story behind Trey Gowdy's resignation. It's worth finding and reporting. Either Gowdy is guilty, or he's getting out of the way of the Mueller train. Or both.— David Atkins (@DavidOAtkins) January 13, 2018
Reminder to all Republicans getting off Island before Mueller storm arrives--BOAT LEAVES AT NOON. First one on board is Trey Gowdy.— Matt Eggman (@egg509) January 13, 2018

Here’s what was going on with the committee two days ago:
So… is Gowdy hiding something or just too low energy for the job? Hmmm…
