Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Rep. Jason Chaffetz will not seek re-election in 2018, two sources who have been informed of his decision told BuzzFeed on Wednesday morning. Chaffetz later confirmed in a statement on Facebook that he will "will not be a candidate for any office in 2018." ... The Utah Republican was first elected in 2008 to represent Utah's 3rd District. As chairman the House Oversight Committee, Chaffetz has drawn attention and criticism for his handling of conflicts of interest investigation into Hillary Clinton and potential investigations into President Donald Trump. Some of that criticism bubbled over in recent months, with angry constituents lambasting Chaffetz at a packed town hall over the February recess.

That's because he'll be cashing in on the huge favor of letting trump get away with massive crimes.

2018 is still a ways away, plenty of time to change his mind. Meanwhile, this takes the pressure off the partisan hack.

Methinks he will be paid well for his role in all of this.

Let's see where he goes next and for how much.

It will be good motivation for the next hyper partisan.

I think he's just taking a Trump break and will be back in 2020; certainly by 2028. This is to get the Trump stink off, nothing more.

If he was worried about the trump stink he wouldn't be helping trump commit treason.

He's letting trump ---- us, then he's going to go get rewarded for it.

Transparent as hell.
