Jason Chaffetz, in case you’ve forgotten in all the election craziness, is one of the two men (Trey Gowdy being the other) who are hell bent on setting the record straight and making sure the Hillary Clinton email scandal is put to bed. But only after all the facts are in and justice is served.
We’ve waited a long time for these words, and Chaffetz just delivered, BIG time. As soon as the smoke had cleared from Trump’s historic win, Jason Chaffetz said that the Hillary Cliton email investigation won’t end. Any. Time. Soon.
The Republican Party is far from done with the former secretary of state, according to Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
But the investigations into Clinton’s email practices at the State Department are on track to continue regardless. According to the Washington Post, Chaffetz said “it would be totally remiss of us to dismiss” probes of Clinton’s practices just because she fell short of winning the White House.
And what he said next made us realize the true patriot Rep. Chaffetz is.
“I still have a duty and obligation to get to the truth about one of the largest breaches of security at the State Department,” he said. “Tens of thousands of documents still have not been turned over to Congress.” Chaffetz continued, “A Trump administration would be cooperative in getting these floodgates to open as they should.”
The Utah lawmaker indicated he doesn’t “anticipate” calling on Clinton to testify, though the committee he leads could pull other former and current State Department staffers in for more questioning.
Of course, the liberals responded with utter BS.
Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said it is “extremely disappointing” to learn that Chaffetz plans to continue investigating Clinton “for years to come.”
“After everything our country has just been through — and particularly given that Donald Trump and [House Speaker] Paul Ryan have both called for healing our nation’s divisions — I think the American people deserve more from Congress than to continue squandering taxpayer dollars on these baseless Republican accusations and partisan attacks,” Cummings said.
I think I speak for us all when I say that it doesn’t matter. Squandering taxpayer dollars on pay-to-play politics, that’s a true crime, not investigating someone for breaches of national security.
We applaud Rep. Chaffetz and wish him good luck with his investigation. We hope justice is served quickly and swiftly for all involved.
