Chaffetz hopes Trump didn't call Comey 'nut job' to Russians

Source: ABC News

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, who is leading one of the congressional investigations of Russia’s election interference and its possible ties to the Trump campaign, said he's concerned by a report in The New York Times that President Trump called fired FBI Director James Comey a “nut job” at a meeting with Russian government officials.

“I hope that’s not true, I don’t know if that’s what was said or not,” the Utah Republican told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos of the report about the president's May 10 meeting.

Chaffetz added that he would prefer that Trump had confronted the Russians over their interference with the election. “You would like the president to beat them over the head over that,” he said on "This Week" Sunday.

The House Oversight Committee needs to see transcripts of all relevant conversations about the Russia investigation, Chaffetz said, referring to any written accounts of the Oval Office meeting with the Russians and Comey’s reported detailed memos of his own interactions with the president.

Chaffetz is making a last minute effort to pretend that he is not a Trump stooge as he heads out of the House.

14. Allegation is when Chaffetz got the Clinton letter from Comey, that Comey should have never sent

Chaffetz removed the classified from it then released it.

2. Amazing how so many Rs are willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

They never gave Hillary a similar benefit. Instead she was guilty until proven innocent time after time after time ...

13. No. That is not true.

What is this "until proven innocent" stuff? Hillary is guilty even after "proven innocent time after time after time ..."

I do agree with the point of your post.

12. ChaffeAss is playing the republican "cutesy with the truth" game

pretending he does not know how badly the republican Draft-Dodger-in-Chief, Comrade Casino, pissed all over protocol by putting down one of America's honorable servants in front of the russian Debt-Masters who rule his corrupt keester, and his cabal of corrupt republican cronies.
