Report: This Well-known Congressman is About to Quit

Five-term Utah Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz will announce Thursday that he will not finish his term, according to a Politico report.

Politico cites multiple sources close to Rep. Chaffetz as well as the congressman’s own statements to the magazine that he was seeking employment “outside Congress.” He will reportedly step down June 30.

The expected announcement will come after Chaffetz, the chairman of the powerful House Oversight Committee, stated he will subpoena the purported “Comey Memos” on which the New York Times based its report that President Donald Trump had suggested ex-FBI Director James Comey “let it go” with regard to ex-National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Chaffetz has been a central figure in the examination of Flynn’s alleged conduct, but it is unclear what significance, if any, that bears on Chaffetz’s resignation.

Chaffetz was elected to great populist conservative fanfare in 2008, running an insurgent primary campaign against then-President George W. Bush-endorsed Republican incumbent Chris Cannon, who once told a crowd, “We love immigrants in Utah. And we don’t oftentimes make the distinction between legal and illegal.”

Vindman was saying things untrue. He should have been fired for lying.
