Jason Chaffetz To Resign From US House Next Month

The Washington Post reports:

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, is planning to announce Thursday that he will leave Congress in June, according to two people familiar with his plans.

Chaffetz (R-Utah) announced last month that he had “made a personal decision to return to the private sector” and would not seek reelection or run for any other political office in 2018.

The decision comes days after Chaffetz took an aggressive posture after reports emerged that former FBI director James B. Comey alleged in private memos that he had been pressured by President Trump to end an investigation into Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser at the time.

They must need him at Fox right away.
