The Utah congressman was discussing the rocky rollout of the ObamaCare insurance exchanges with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, who suggested that the botched website might have been the result of the administration hiring contractors close to the president’s reelection campaign.
Ingraham then said that “all roads lead back to” Jarrett, noting her involvement in “meetings as this thing was being formulated.”
“She seems to have her tentacles into every issue and every topic,” Chaffetz responded. “Her name ultimately always comes up.”
Conservatives have routinely expressed suspicion about Jarrett’s role within President Obama’s inner circle. The former Chicago lawyer and businesswoman has been a top adviser to the president since his election in 2008.
