Chaffetz: Trump Told Me ‘Go After Everything You Want To Go After’ [Incl. the Hildabeast?]
Daily Caller ^ | 1/31/17 | Christian Datoc

Posted on 01/31/2017 3:13:46 PM PST by markomalley

Congressman Jason Chaffetz said during Tuesday’s House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that President Trump instructed him and the committee to pursue every government investigation they deem appropriate.

The Oversight chairman stated the conversation took place after the 2017 GOP retreat in Philadelphia, his second-time ever speaking with President Trump in person.

“He came up to me and said, ‘you do a great job. You do a great job,’ which of course I agreed with,” the Utah Republican explained, eliciting laughs from the committee. “Then he said, ‘listen, I understand that I am the President. You have a job to do. You do oversight. Don’t slow down. You go after everything you want to go after. You look at everything you want to look at.”

“If you sat there and heard what he said to me about pursuing oversight of the government and the function that we fulfill, you’d be pretty inspiring, and it was inspiring to me,” he continued. “For him to convey the message, ‘don’t slow down, do your job, there’s a lot to get after with the government,’ I think that’s a good message.”

The Foundation is where all of the heavy criminal activities are and the serious money. We’re talking billions, not millions. RICO is a perfect fit and Preet is still on it, per Trump ‘s instructions. Congress needs to run a parallel investigation.

Yes! This applies to various departments and agencies like the Dept of Education. Don’t downsize them... eliminate by whatever means necessary. Otherwise they will grow back to what they were.

I wish Chaffetz had kept this to himself.

Now, the Clintons and all their supporters will be doing whatever necessary to hide, change, move, sue, or do whatever necessary to stop this .. or anything Chaffetz plans to do.

And .. you can plan on the DemocRATS giving passes to all the kooky liberals who will protest every hearing, every day.
