    As Fox News opinionators struggle with the WrestleManiacal battle between former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, it’s interesting to see where prominent conservatives on the cable news network land. Evidenced by searing criticism from former GOP Congressman turned Fox News host, we can take Jason Chaffetz out of the Trump column. Trump returned to Fox News airwaves for a formal interview with host and political ally Sean Hannity for a Mar-a-Lago interview which aired Monday night. Some may have confused the Q&A with a Festivus celebration as there was no shortage of grievance airing, which has been...

  • Jason Chaffetz: Dear Republican Trump haters – What did you get for your trade?

    A little less than a year ago, a significant number of independent and Republican voters decided to trade bad tweets for bad policy. Today, your Twitter feed is void of President Trump's tweets. But the price was high. Gone are the good policies that drove the Trump economy and made the world a safer place. In their place are policies antithetical to prosperity, freedom and security. You traded energy efficiency for dependency on the Middle East. Whereas a year ago you enjoyed inexpensive gas, high paying energy jobs, and fewer incentives to entangle ourselves in Middle Eastern politics, today President...
  • Former GOP Rep. Chaffetz: Russia Gave Campaign Cash to Biden and Got Exactly What They Wanted

    Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz is sounding the alarm on Joe Biden. During an interview on Fox News, the former Republican lawmaker said Biden has “violated his own ethics pledge” by taking campaign cash from a Russia lobbyist. Chaffetz also noted that Russia gave campaign cash to Biden and got exactly what they wanted: Biden shut down the Keystone XL pipeline in the U.S. and approved a pipeline to be finished in Russia. “It turns out that Biden, in violation of his own ethics pledge, got campaign cash from a well-known Russian lobbyist ahead of his decision to drop sanctions...

    Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz said on Tuesday that the Seattle protesters who occupied several blocks of public property, blocking the space from others, amount to “domestic terrorists.” “I think what the people are doing there is not just protesting. It’s not peacefully assembling,” the former Utah representative told “Outnumbered Overtime.” Chaffetz said that President Trump intervening in the protests is not warranted unless there is a federal level crime being committed. Chaffetz also said that addressing the Seattle protest should be solely within the purview of the local, county, and state jurisdictions of Washington. “I think it’s intimidation and...

    Former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz questioned why House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is allowed a security clearance when he “continues to lie.” “I still, to this day, do not understand why Adam Schiff has a security clearance. He continues to lie. He continues to put out information that he knows is not true. He has stood in front of the United States Senate and talked about things that are not in the impeachment,” Chaffetz told Fox & Friends. Chaffetz also responded to the news from the night before that Adam Schiff had warned that President Trump could sell Alaska...

    Full title: Here's Who Jason Chaffetz Believes Should Lose Their Security Clearance Over The Mueller Investigation Former Chairman of the House Oversight Committee and Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz (R) said he believes House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) needs to resign from the committee and have his security clearance revoked. Despite the Mueller report showing President Donald Trump did not collude with Russia, Schiff has gone on various TV shows saying there is "evidence" that actually proves that finding to be false. Of course, Schiff continually pushes that narrative but has absolutely nothing to back up claim. “I...

    Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has finished his report on Russia’s inference in our 2016 presidential election, Democratic congressional leaders have done something remarkable. In a dramatic flip-flop from their embrace of secrecy during the Obama administration, they now say: “Release the full report.” I never thought I would hear those words cross the lips of the same Democrats who took the polar opposite position when I and other Republicans in Congress made quite reasonable and legitimate requests for information during the term of Democratic President Obama. Yet on Friday, when Mueller submitted his report to Attorney General William...

    Utah Policy ^ | Jan 6, 2019 | Written by Bryan Schott, Managing Editor
    Former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, now a Fox News commentator, predicted Sunday the partial government shutdown would continue at least through President Donald Trump's State of the Union address, and Republicans would be seen as the winners. If the current partial shutdown continues through Friday, it would be the longest on the books. Chaffetz, speaking on Fox News Sunday, said he believes the shutdown would still be going on at that point, and would likely not end before President Trump gives his speech on January 29. "I think the next pressure point is the State of the Union at the...

    Can the government spend money that has not been specifically authorized by Congress? In theory – no. In practice? Absolutely. Each year the government spends hundreds of billions of dollars on things that are not specifically authorized by Congress. Both Democrats and Republicans have been complicit in this practice. President Donald Trump, to his credit, has worked hard to get his wall funding properly authorized. But he may ultimately do exactly what presidents before him have done: take advantage of the broken Congressional process.

    Sessions said in the statement posted on Twitter by DOJ spox Sarah Isgur Flores, “I took control of the Department of Justice the day I was sworn in, which is why we have had unprecedented success at effectuating the President’s agenda.” Sessions then took it to the next level and unloaded on President Trump. “While I am the Attorney General, the actions of the Justice Department will not be improperly influenced by political considerations. I demand the highest standards, and where they are not met, I take action,” Sessions continued. President Trump blasted AWOL Jeff Sessions during an interview with...

    Former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo was on Capitol Hill Tuesday for a closed-door meeting with Senate Intelligence Committee investigators as part of the panel's probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Caputo worked for the Trump campaign from November 2015 to June 2016 as a political adviser. Speaking exclusively with ABC News upon his arrival Tuesday, Caputo once again disputed the notion the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 campaign. “I’m looking forward to talking to the Senate committee," Caputo told ABC News. "I hope it’s the last time I’m asked to talk...

    On "Outnumbered" on Friday, Fox News contributor and former Utah congressman Jason Chaffetz slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions and said it's time to "get rid of him." Some lawmakers in recent weeks have called for Sessions to resign, criticizing his Justice Department for not cooperating with Congress and for leaks related to the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Sessions recused himself from the FBI's Russia probe in early March after acknowledging that he had had two previously undisclosed encounters with the Russian ambassador during Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. He said it would be improper for him...

    Jason Chaffetz said former FBI Director James Comey has a lot of "explaining to do" in light of new reports that he began drafting a statement exonerating Hillary Clinton even before interviewing key witnesses, including the former secretary of state. "He's certainly got a lot of explaining to do. He could have perjured himself," the former House oversight committee chairman said on "Fox & Friends." Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley and fellow GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham wrote a letter to the FBI this week, expressing concern over whether Comey made up his mind about the email investigation months before...

    Though conservative firebrand Chris Herrod hasn’t conceded yet, the Associated Press and most political observers have named Provo mayor John Curtis the winner in yesterday’s special GOP primary in the third congressional district of Utah. Held to select a successor to Fox News’ latest “personality,” Jason Chaffetz, the primary was a three-way affair involving front-runner Curtis, Herrod (endorsed by an ideologue-dominated party convention), and basketball scion Tanner Ainge (son of former BYU and NBA star Danny Ainge). Most of the drama was generated by Herrod’s friends at the Club for Growth, who ran a lot of ads labeling Curtis a...

Chaffetz said, “I really do believe Congress would be much better served if there was a housing allowance for members of Congress.” He admitted that the current political climate made such a proposal legislatively arduous, but claimed that, “A $2,500 housing allowance would be appropriate and a real help to have at least a decent quality of life in...
