Congressman Trey Gowdy from South Carolina usually makes a pretty good argument. As a former prosecutor, he certainly knows how to make a case. I’m also starting to believe there’s some fire and brimstone preacher in his past, as well. One thing about Trey Gowdy is abundantly clear: he believes passionately in the law.
“May justice be done, though the heavens fall,” as Trey Gowdy has said previously.
Speaking briefly on the floor of the House of Representatives, the people’s house, Gowdy hammers Obama violations of law. Addressing Obama defenders, who dismiss arguments against Obama violations of law, piecemeal, as insignificant, Gowdy asks if there are any laws the President actually has to enforce.
Gowdy stated, “In the oath that brand new citizens take, it contains six different references to the law. If it’s good enough for us to ask brand new citizens to affirm their devotion to the law, is that too much to ask that the president do the same?” A compelling question, to be sure, but Gowdy continues, “If a president can change some laws, can he change all the laws? Can he change election laws? Can he change discrimination laws? Are there any laws, under your theory, that he actually has to enforce?”
