Chaffetz Blasts DOJ: No More Press Conferences On Leakers “Until You Have Some People In Handcuffs”
Former House Oversight Committee Chair, and now Fox News political analyst, Jason Chaffetz is calling the bluff of the suddenly eager Deputy Attorney General saying that he “comes with absolutely zero credibility on this” issue after repeatedly refusing to investigate, much less prosecute, Hillary Clinton for lying under oath and/or her litany of other federal crimes.
“[Rod Rosenstein] comes with absolutely zero credibility on this.”
“Remember last year when we had Director Comey come before the Oversight Committee, I was the Chair, I asked him if he looked at Hillary Clinton, whether or not she told the truth under oath. He said he needed a request from Congress so myself and Bob Goodlatte, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, sent that request to the Department of Justice and it’s never been answered.”
“So, if they want to start, lets start with Hillary Clinton and whether or not she lied under oath. And lets also go back to the State Department who had an open investigation. They reopened it July 7th of 2016. They’ve never closed it. Nearly 300 people who are dealing in classified information in a nonsecure setting, why didn’t they ever close that investigation? They need to answer those questions. Start with that. They come with zero credibility on this issue.”
“There becomes a point where you actually have to answer these things. Don’t do another press conference until you have some people in handcuffs. This is classified information. It’s against the law to just leak it out and give it to whoever you want.”
