GOP Chairman: No Oversight Talk at White House Meeting

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee met with Donald Trump on Tuesday, agreed with the president's request not to talk about oversight and reiterated that it's unlikely his panel will investigate the businessman's sprawling empire.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah told reporters that before he even sat down in the Oval Office, "The president said, 'No oversight. You can't talk about anything that has to do with oversight,'" Chaffetz responded: "Fair enough."

At a briefing at his Capitol office following the 30-minute meeting with Trump, Chaffetz said he is unlikely to grant requests by Democrats to investigate possible conflicts of interest involving Trump's businesses.

Chaffetz had promised before the election that he would investigate Democrat Hillary Clinton for years.

The congressman insisted his committee will pursue a "vigorous oversight agenda" under an all-Republican government.

1. When a government becomes so corrupt, it is time to dissolve it.
