For those who do not know Trey Gowdy he is an American attorney, politician and former federal prosecutor serving as the U.S. Representative for South Carolina’s 4th congressional district since 2011. A Republican, he is a member of the Tea Party movement. Unfortunately for America he is retiring at the end of his term for personal reasons. Probably sick and tired of dealing with the tiresome Politicians in power that are only interested in bringing Trump down and covering the corruption that has been lining their pockets for years and want it to continue. This man has worked hard for the seven years he has been elected. Any way enough from me, this is a very intelligent response to and unintelligent question.

We need our soldiers home to protect our country not anyone else’s – Just sayin.
