UNCONFIRMED REPORT: Trey Gowdy, leader of Benghazi witchhunt in the House, will NOT run for re-election

The Washington Examiner right-wing website, citing Republican Congressman John Fleming (R-LA) as its source, is reporting that U.S. Representative Harold Watson Gowdy III (R-SC), commonly known as Trey Gowdy, will not run for re-election to his House seat next year. Gowdy chairs the House Benghazi Committee that has been waging a political witchhunt against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The report of Gowdy’s retirement has NOT been confirmed by Gowdy himself, his campaign committee, or his congressional office. Gowdy currently represents the 4th Congressional District of South Carolina.

If this report is true, then that’s a clear sign that the giant waste of taxpayer money known as the House Benghazi Committee is beginning to be an electoral albatross for Republicans. While I’m not a Hillary Clinton supporter (I’m supporting Bernie Sanders for president), the House Benghazi Committee has clearly been nothing more than a waste of Congress’s time and taxpayers’ money.
