There are two House Republican chairmen tasked with possibly investigating President Trump. One of them — Rep. Devin Nunes (Calif.) — messed it up so badly that he had to step aside. And now the other is retiring from Congress.

Through Trump's reluctance to quash potential conflicts of interest and his penchant for making wild accusations and then pawning them off on investigators, jobs such as Chaffetz's House Oversight Committee chairmanship have become completely thankless. Less than three months into the Trump administration, Chaffetz was forced to repeatedly shrug off Democrats and watchdogs' calls for him to investigate Trump's possible conflicts of interest. He also had to answer for Trump's allegation that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election. He was even pressed to investigate Nunes's conduct, which led the House Intelligence Committee chairman to hand off his Russia investigation.

The only investigation Chaffetz has actually leaned into, it turns out, was the one Trump really wanted him to: rooting out leaks in the federal government.

Neither has the guts to do their jobs. The rest of the party is no better, colluding with Trump to misuse classified information in an effort to smear Susan Rice.

He and Nunes are used to doing nothing. They don't like the pressure of having to accomplish anything that doesn't include tearing something down. That's the systemic cancer of the GOP.

This is a super fishy move for both of them.

 

They're in it deep, I bet.
