U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz to resign from Congress

U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz to resign from Congress

On Tuesday, Chaffetz asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation for documents regarding Comey's communications with Trump. Chaffetz previously announced that he would not seek re-election, though he was expected to finish out his term, now slated to end in 2018.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) is leaving Congress, possibly for a job at Fox News.

One possible replacement for Chaffetz on the committee is Rep. Trey Gowdy, a Republican and former SC prosecutor who chaired the special Benghazi investigative committee and a close Chaffetz friend.

He is a former state and federal prosecutor who led the high-profile, two-year Benghazi investigation, and he is well liked inside the House GOP.

The Boston Celtics are heading to the Eastern Conference Finals after defeating the Washington Wizards 115-105 in Game 7 . In a series filled with blow-outs, flagrant fouls, and missing teeth, Game 7 looks to be the climax of this series .

Chaffetz also said he's not sure the Comey memos are "real".

On Tuesday, he vowed to get the memos ex-FBI Director James Comey reportedly wrote about his meeting with Trump in which the president allegedly asked him to shut down the FBI investigation into ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. As for the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel in the Russian Federation probe, the President said, "I respect the move, but the entire thing has been a witch hunt".

Chaffetz's impending departure has created a sharp divide between GOP legislative leaders and Herbert, also a Republican, over how to fill his vacant U.S. House seat. "And there are a lot of good, quality people who can do this job". He's very rich. I don't think that he ran for this office to line his pockets even more.
