Many people would even like to see him as the replacement of James Comey, the former FBI Director who was fired by President Trump.
Gowdy came out with a statement on the firing saying:
“Director James Comey had a very difficult job. I appreciate his service to our country as both a federal prosecutor and the head of the FBI. I had my differences with him on some matters but never lost sight of the fact that he had a very difficult job and undoubtedly had access to facts that perhaps the rest of us did not. I am thankful for his service to our country and am hopeful our President [Donald Trump] will select and independent minded person to serve as the head of our nations premier law enforcement agency. Our justice system is the foundation of our republic. It must be both respected and fully worthy of our respect.”

Gowdy is truly an American hero. He should be the replacement at the FBI as he knows how to get the truth. Comey was starting to fall apart at the end of his time at the FBI. He started to lose the path that he was on and what he needed to do as director. The Hillary debacle was the final straw.
James Comey should have been fired a long time ago, so this come as no surprise.
