Jason Chaffetz Unloads On His Way Out: Trump Admin Worse Than Obama’s, Sessions Worse Than Lynch

(Bizpac Review) – Rep. Jason Chaffetz is not leaving DC quietly. He’s openly trashing the Trump administration in the most insulting way possible.

Two weeks before he retires from Congress, the Utah representative teed off at the administration and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in the interview that aired on Sunday.

“The reality is, sadly, I don’t see much difference between the Trump administration and the Obama administration,” Chaffetz told Sharyl Attkisson of Sinclair broadcasting.

“I thought there would be this, these floodgates would open up with all the documents we wanted from the Department of State, the Department of Justice, the Pentagon. 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,” he said. “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.”

He took aim at slow-moving Republicans in Congress who, he said, are not interested in playing “offense.”

Chaffetz called the Hillary Clinton email investigation “one of the critical things” he wished to see more cooperation on.

“There was the investigation into the IRS,” he added. “And one that was more than seven-years-old is Fast & Furious.

“We have been in court trying to pry those documents out of the Department of Justice and still to this day they will not give us those document. And at the State Department, nothing.”

But he didn’t blame President Trump for it.

“I think if we went to the senior most people, even the president himself, they would be pulling their hair out,” he said.

He said the issue was those “within the bowels of the organization who “just wait you out.”

Chaffetz expressed frustration that IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, and others, were still employed after the agency targeted tea party groups.

“He’s still there. Nobody was fired, nobody was prosecuted, nobody was held accountable,” he said. 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. Nothing. Nothing changed.”
