We cannot allow any type of corruption even if it comes from those we support. Jason Chaffetz on Twitter said "What she did was wrong, wrong, wrong. Here is our bi-partisan letter to the White House and OGE."

Trump and Co. need to be more conscious of this for sure. The optics are horrible.

The "optics" lol. If they cared about optics he wouldn't have appointed a head of an oil company as secretary of state and then proceeded to talk sweet about Putin, the guy who has the oil Tillerson wants. He would have divested himself from his business interests. He wouldn't have had Ivanka sit in on calls with heads of state so she could plug her business. He wouldn't have nominated a retard who gave millions to republicans for Education.

There are a million other things they wouldn't have done if they cared about optics

I'm disappointed they tried to do this shit so quickly.... Goddamn it people this is why we need balance... they whole system is clunking around right now because everything sloshed back to one of the parties.... this shit needs to be balanced out as soon as possible. Absolute power corrupts absolutely, no exceptions, that means even Trump could corrupt himself if he blocks or doesn't ensure there be balance implemented correctly. "correctly" being the hard part.

Before the Civil Rights Act of 1964, there was a balance in the parties. Afterwards, conservative Democrats fled the Democratic party for the Republican party, and more liberal & progressive Republicans fled from the influx of ex-Southern Dems to the Democratic party. Now our political parties are unbalanced, and politics have turned into a football game.

I agree with George Washington's view that we should have nothing to do with party politics and should just run & vote on issues instead. Our dumb asses refused to listen to reason.

Chaffetz is a globalist never-trumper. Don't trust a word this fuck says.

Nope. He didn't stand with trump during the election because of the republican ingroup. Now that Trump has won, Chaffetz is closer to Trump than most of the other members of the oversight committee. Chaffetz role, as chairperson, is to call them as he sees them. He was the one who was spearheading Benghazi and the Clinton email investigation.

I've watched dozens of hours of footage from the Oversight committee and Chaffetz is almost always the sharpest person in the room. The only one who comes close is Trey Gowdy.

All I can think is that anyone upvoting this Kardashian-level crap is a shill or a bot.

This is literally the silliest, weakest shit that has gone down in the past several months. The fact that THIS pablum is what Shitfetz is focusing on tells me he's a McCain-level criminal.
