*Ugh* #NeverTrumper Jason Chaffetz Asks DOJ to Investigate Comey Firing
Always Remember: Never Trust a #NeverTrumper
#NeverTrump Repubublican Jason Chaffetz, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, called for the Department of Justice to investigate the circumstances surrounding President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey.
And he’s a Republican!
Tonight James Comey released a statement saying, “The president can fire an FBI Director for any reason.”
But Chaffetz is on a mission to help Democrats destroy Donald Trump.
The chairman of the House Oversight Committee is calling for the Justice Department’s inspector general to look into the circumstances surrounding President Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.
“Previously I asked Inspector General Horowitz to review the FBI’s actions in advance of the 2016 election,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said in a statement Wednesday.
“Today I sent a letter urging IG Horowitz to expand the scope of his review to include the decision to fire Director Comey. I look forward to receiving the IG’s findings.”
The inspector general is also probing the Justice Department’s and the FBI’s handling of their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server in the months before the 2016 presidential election.
Trump abruptly fired Comey on Tuesday, citing the recommendations of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein. In a letter explaining the rationale for ousting the FBI director, Rosenstein argued that Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation last year was unprofessional and made him unfit to lead the FBI.
