And the intrigue deepens. The Huffington Post reports:
KSL Newsradio on Thursday reported that Chaffetz might not even finish out his congressional term. “I will continue to weigh the options, but I might depart early,” Chaffetz said, according to the radio station.
In his role as chairman of the oversight committee, Chaffetz continually investigated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for government business, and he was one of the first Republicans to go after Clinton for her response to the 2012 Benghazi, Libya, attack.
But he’s been slow to investigate any issues with President Donald Trump and his administration, receiving criticism for the way he’s handled topics such as Trump’s unverified claims about voter fraud and wiretapping.
Former British MP turned Twitter muckraker Louise Mensch has been busy making claims.

Claude has very reliable info. My sources say however that Chaffetz kompromat is Russian money laundering. https://t.co/5TDuBrmRsj

A 2nd source is claiming that the Russians knew about Chaffetz's affair and were blackmailing him. https://t.co/Dg4hKCzRNp
