Rep. Jason Chaffetz is leaving Congress at the end of the month. As he is ready to leave his Congressional career, offers some parting shots at President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Chaffetz was a guest on Sinclair’s “Full Measure” program where he said “I don’t see much difference between the Trump administration and the Obama administration.”
Chaffetz said he expected the Trump administration to provide documents that were blocked by stonewalling from the Obama administration, but that never happened.
“In many ways, it’s almost worse because we’re getting nothing, and that’s terribly frustrating and, with all due respect, the attorney general has not changed at all. I find him to be worse than what I saw with Loretta Lynch in terms of releasing documents and making things available. I just, that’s my experience, and that’s not what I expected.”
Chaffetz also said Republicans had been pushing Trump to fire IRS Commissioner John Koskinen over a scandal involving allegations that the agency targeted tea party groups for audits.
That hasn’t happened either
“We tried to issue subpoenas. We tried to hold people in contempt and the Obama administration said ‘no,’ and the Trump administration came in and did zero,” Chaffetz said. “Nothing. Nothing changed.”
