The Deep State’s campaign against Donald Trump inches forward.

It’s being aided by Congress and its endless Russia probes.

But Trey Gowdy just made one announcement that crushed their hopes of removing Trump from office.

When Gowdy was promoted to the Chair of the House Oversight Committee, he gained the power to investigate Trump and Russia.

Multiple Congressional investigations into the Trump campaign and Russia are already ongoing and gumming up Congresses ability to conduct its business.

Would Gowdy use his perch to launch another Congressional inquiry?

Gowdy announced he would not.

Politico reports:

Newly-elected House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy does not plan to investigate Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election or questions of whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.

The South Carolina Republican told a gathering of reporters Friday that he instead wants to return the Oversight panel to its original “compulsory” jurisdiction, including overseeing more mundane issues like government procurement and the Census.

And while Oversight will likely pursue some investigations eventually, Gowdy was adamant that he does not want to infringe on the work of special counsel Robert Mueller.

Gowdy also argued that the Russia scandal and questions of obstruction fall more in the jurisdiction of other committees — including the the House Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee, where he helps lead the investigation of Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election.

“No. 1: It’s in the jurisdiction of Bob Mueller. And secondarily, I would think Judiciary has jurisdiction over the Department of Justice and the FBI,” he said. “To the extent that any of those memos are classified, that would be [Intelligence]. And for those that think a third committee ought to look at it, Oversight would have secondary permissive jurisdiction but it would be secondary.”

This was a devastating blow to the Deep State.

The other Congressional probes into Trump and Russia are turning up nothing.

Another Congressional probe would generate fresh headlines which could be used to claim the investigation is growing because yet another committee was looking into the matter.

But Gowdy is choking off the media’s oxygen by refusing to play along.

He is correct that other committees have jurisdiction and that him starting an inquiry would be redundant.

At this point, The Deep State’s best chance to destroy Trump is to throw everything against the wall and see what sticks.

Their strategy is failing and Trey Gowdy is not about to toss them a life line.
