Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Gowdy on Mueller: Let the Man Do His Job!


Trey Gowdy is one Congressman whom I greatly admire. He was the 7th Circuit Solicitor and led an office of 25 attorneys and 65 employees before joining Congress. He has been at the forefront of the Congressional investigations and doesn’t mince words when he gives his opinion.

So when people have repeatedly attacked Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his work, Trey Gowdy supports him and suggests we let him do his job. As a result, I ask, why there is so much turmoil around the situation, so much gnashing of teeth? So, I investigated, and I think I know why people are so upset. And frankly, I think Trey Gowdy has the right idea.

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Conrad Black’s Life Matters


Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast for November 1, 2016 it’s the Conrad Black’s Life Matters edition. Our special guest is Lord Conrad Black founder of The National Post, author of highly acclaimed biographies of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Richard Nixon, and Canadian TV personality. Lord Black is an outspoken Trump supporter who writes for the National Review. He will discuss with us, among other things, what makes America the greatest country on earth and how the “Bush-Clinton-Obama co-regency” threatens to derail that greatness. Further, as a personal acquaintance and longtime business associate of Donald Trump he attests to Trump’s solidity as a businessman and loyalty as a friend (to say nothing of his basic sanity).

Also, we’ll talk about FBI Director James Comey’s leap back into the middle of the 2016 election and the torpedo he launched at the HMS Hillary last Friday by reopening her email investigation. Does Hillary’s first instinct of demanding that Comey release everything immediately make sense? Is her second instinct – to assassinate the messenger by slamming Comey – work any better? Is the enthusiasm gap, where Trump now leads by seven points according to one poll, enough to tilt the election to Donald?
