Chaffetz asks White House about sensitive info at Mar-a-Lago, says door is open to Flynn invest ...

Source: Salt Lake Tribune

Washington • House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz on Tuesday demanded the White House answer a litany of questions about President Donald Trump's handling of classified materials after news reports of him using the middle of a country club restaurant to discuss a North Korean missile test.

Chaffetz also said that he may launch an investigation into Trump's now-former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who resigned Monday night and admitted misleading White House officials about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States before Trump took office.

While Chaffetz has been criticized by Democrats and some constituents for not looking more closely at the Trump administration, Tuesday saw a new push by the Utah Republican to review actions by the White House. Chaffetz said in an interview that he is taking his role seriously as Congress' top government watchdog even if critics don't think it's enough.

"I expect them to continue to pepper me with those questions. That's legitimate," Chaffetz said, noting that he loves "Democrats' newfound interest" in probing the White House after eight years of President Barack Obama.

I will believe it when I see it, but if both chambers open investigations, this could get ugly for #notmypresident pretty quick.

1. Chaffetz must be under a lot of pressure after

his dumbass statement "It's taking care of itself."

I would have loved to hear the pushback he got after that.

Trump isn't going to be president forever and these congress people want a career that last more than 4 years. They need to decide if they're going down on the S.S. Trump.

2. Considering the FACT, republiklans probed the WH for 8 years and

found scatchalagooch (nothing) - this can only be attributed to their blatant racism and hate...

7. This monkey is such an asshat.

He is whining because President Obama didn't have any scandals, except the shit they made up. Hell, Congress couldn't
even think up a lie to go after him with. This little dick doesn't seem to understand the difference between reality and parallel universes.

12. He doesn't realize sane people, (Democrats) can see right through people like him.

You're right, there was nothing for Democrats to investigate, as the right-wing would have been reveling in it night and day, for years to come.

5. Confused, But That's What They Want

 

The LDS Church, its leaders and members are no fans of Trump. I've been wondering why Chaffetz would be defending him. Confusion and Chaos are all we've seen since 1/20/17, so why would this issue be any different.

Trump: 'I would rarely leave the White House'

http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/245884-trump-i-would-rarely-leave-the-white-house

“I would rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done,” Trump, 69, tells ITK. "I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off.”

----------

Yes, I would live in the White House because it’s the appropriate thing to do,” he says.

9. Oh lookee... Chaffetz might actually have to DO HIS JOB.

Guess he's decided he wants to continue being a Congressman.

Hope we can find some credible moderate Dem in Utah (are there any?) to run against this evil POS.
