The most exciting moments on C-Span in recent years have been in watching Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) totally rock the House Oversight Committee. He has been so good at his job and has so clearly appeared to be enjoying himself. This is why many were shocked when he announced his resignation on May 17th, effective on June 30th.
We learn of Chaffetz’ frustrations in not being able to pry requested documents from the Department of Justice and the State Department and how, if anything, it’s getting even tighter under Trump. His job dissatisfaction is compounded by its grueling nature and in constantly having to be on the road, raising a million dollars each year to campaign.
We learn that Chaffetz neither owns nor rents a residence in DC, as he can’t afford to support two homes, with two kids in college. He sleeps in a tiny cot in his office, which he shows to Sharyl Attkisson, in this rare report, where we actually see an honest US Congressman being interviewed by an honest journalist working for a Mainstream Media outlet.
