Congressional GOP Utterly Silent After Jason Chaffetz Busted Using Personal Email Server


In a great ironic twist, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) has been promising to lead the investigation of Hillary Clinton even now that Donald Trump has become president, and is now under fire himself for use of an illegal private email server.

The Democratic Coalition Against Trump reported Rep. Chaffetz to the FBI, explaining:

The Democratic Coalition Against Trump reported Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) to the FBI on Wednesday morning for possibly breaking Executive Order 13526 and 18 U.S.C. Sec. 793(f) of the federal code, which makes it unlawful to send or store classified information on a personal email. As was recently resurfaced by the Democratic Coalition’s #TrumpLeaks program, Rep. Chaffetz lists his personal Gmail address on business cards brandished with the Congressional seal. Rep. Chaffetz sits on the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations, which has jurisdiction over “internal and homeland security,” among other things.

“The mishandling of classified information that concerns the national security of our nation is something that the FBI takes very seriously,” said Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the Democratic Coalition. “The irony is unparalleled- Representative Chaffetz, the person who led the charge against Secretary Clinton’s personal email server use, could actually be the one who is breaking the law and putting our national security at risk in the process.”


This coalition brings up several good questions.

First, will Chaffetz be able to lead an investigation of Hillary Clinton while he himself is suspected of doing the exact same thing she’s accused of doing?

1. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, -R, Liar/Hypocrite, Utah- Big Man on Campus wannabe...

...AND general shit-weasel.

Chaffetz needs to resign, move back to Utah permanently, and spend the rest of his days contemplating just what a despicable person he truly is.

3. Of Course

Their hypocrisy is beyond belief. Worse yet, their supporters either don't see it or don't care. It certainly will not be talked about on Faux News and the clueless who watch Faux are not going to put 2 and 2 together or it will add up to 5, alternate facts you know.

Republicans don't care if politicians on their side break the rules. But if the Democrats do the same thing, they cry "bloody murder."

They are breaking laws left and right, yet there seems to be no accountability. How is this happening? Is there nobody in Washington that is able to bring the hammer down?

13. I have known about this from at least summer 2016

They all have private servers and do emails from non government systems. Now the white house is back to using RNC emails. You all's guess is as good as mine why this isn't known to the whole country! Chuck Todd??? You stated yesterday you supposed the news media wasn't hard enough on Hillary and her emails... but you never talked about this.

What the fuck this man smokes half the time? Does he wake up every morning wondering what new stupid shit he could say everyday? Is there some kind of inner challenge he has going where he wills himself to say more dumb shit as each day passes?

16. He should resign the House immediately

Of course, I don't expect it. But he should at least be reminded daily of his "sins". Couldn't think of a better word. But he's guilty of a lot.

I bet it would be hard to get through to him via his web site. But a call from a next door neighbor state, Colorado, to his local office is on my agenda.

Silence, huh? I guess we can interpret that as Ghandi's, "First they ignore you". We can't let this go away.

18. The most vocal zealots against something are usually guilty of it themselves.

These sorts of people are often so terrified of being found out that they tend to knee-jerkingly go on the offensive in order to (in their minds) distract from their own transgressions or violations of the proclaimed protocols.

19. Whenever a Republican accuses someone of wrongdoing

it should be standard practice to investigate that Republican too. Guilty dishonest people try to divert suspicion towards someone else.

31. I was just thinking the same thing.

But I had forgotten how ridiculous it became.
  • Newt Gingrich resigned from the House before proceedings started due to his infidelities.
  • Bob Livingston was chosen to replace the Newt as Speaker, until his infidelities came to light.
  • Other Republicans, including Dan Burton, Helen Chenoweth and Henry Hyde, had their infidelities exposed at this time.
  • And who eventually took over the Speakership from Gringrich? Dennis Hastert, now in prison for molesting teenaged boys during his years as a wrestling coach.

Republicans -- the finest purveyors of hypocrisy in the world today!
