Should President Trump Make Trey Gowdy His Next FBI Director?

Since the firing of James Comey, rumors have been swirling as to who the permanent replacement for Comey should be.

On the short list, Trey Gowdy has been mentioned as a top choice.

From CNN:

Picking Rep. Trey Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican and former federal prosecutor, would electrify Trump’s Republican base.

Almost immediately after Comey’s departure went public, right-wing blogs and websites jumped at the chance to push Gowdy, who became a champion of the right when he led the committee looking into Clinton’s handling of the 2012 Benghazi attack.
Several blogs even started petitions urging Trump to appoint Gowdy director of the FBI.
Gowdy was critical of Comey’s decision not to prosecute Clinton over her use of a private email server, but said in the wake of his firing that the former FBI director “had a very difficult job.”
Like Giuliani and Christie, it would be difficult for Trump to confirm Gowdy, given his clear partisan bent and the fact he endorsed the President during the 2016 Republican primary.
What do you think? Would Gowdy be the perfect choice for the president?
