Let’s see how the Republican’s handle this one now that the shoe may be on the other foot
Old story resurfacing? – Why Can Rep. Jason Chaffetz Use Personal Email, But Hillary Clinton Can’t?
During a hearing in July 2016, House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) grilled FBI Director James Comey about his decision to recommend against indicting Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
The tidbit was brought up by Eleanor Holmes Norton, the Democratic delegate from the District of Columbia, who during the hearing noted that Chaffetz lists his personal email as his primary contact on his business cards. Chaffetz’ business cards were first reported on by ABC News last year.
It appeared that it was put to rest back then . . . but wait – it’s now being reported that The Democratic Coalition Against Trump reported Rep. Chaffetz to the FBI.

In a great ironic twist, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) has been promising to lead the investigation of Hillary Clinton even now that Donald Trump has become president, and is now under fire himself for use of an illegal private email server.
The Democratic Coalition Against Trump reported Rep. Chaffetz to the FBI, explaining:
The Democratic Coalition Against Trump reported Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) to the FBI on Wednesday morning for possibly breaking Executive Order 13526 and 18 U.S.C. Sec. 793(f) of the federal code, which makes it unlawful to send or store classified information on a personal email. As was recently resurfaced by the Democratic Coalition’s #TrumpLeaks program, Rep. Chaffetz lists his personal Gmail address on business cards brandished with the Congressional seal. Rep. Chaffetz sits on the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations, which has jurisdiction over “internal and homeland security,” among other things.
Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the Democratic Coalition said:
“The mishandling of classified information that concerns the national security of our nation is something that the FBI takes very seriously . . . The irony is unparalleled – Representative Chaffetz, the person who led the charge against Secretary Clintons personal email server use, could actually be the one who is breaking the law and putting our national security at risk in the process.”
This coalition brings up several interesting questions.
- Will Chaffetz be able to lead an investigation of Hillary Clinton while he himself is suspected of doing the exact same thing she’s accused of doing?
- Why is she the only one being investigated, when there is ample evidence of many, many government officials using private email servers, as well as evidence of Donald Trump and his Russian ties communicating through private servers?
If this is being reported accurately, it could get very interesting.
