Over the past few years, and certainly recently, Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy has emerged as one of the most influential and impactful lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
Gowdy has been racking up one accolade after another for his brave work fighting corruption, most notably leading the investigation into Benghazi that uncovered Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and sullied her reputation past the point of no return. You’ll be thrilled to hear that Gowdy was just rewarded with his biggest honor yet.
According to reports, out of all the political figures in the United States, Congressman Gowdy was just selected to deliver the prestigious annual Winthrop Paul Rockefeller Distinguished Lecture Series at the U.S. Marshals Museum.
Stated Lisenne Rockefeller, who is part of the Rockefeller family underwriting the lecture, “We were overwhelmed by the positive feedback we received from the inaugural Winthrop Paul Rockefeller Distinguished Lecture Series. We are looking forward to continuing this national lecture series in my late husband’s honor with Congressman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina.”
The previous Rockefeller Lecture Series chose the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia to deliver the speech, in what proved to be one of his final public events. Do you think that Trey Gowdy is a worthy successor to Scalia in receiving this great honor?
