Jeff Chaffetz Called Sessions Out as a Problem for Not Handling the Deep State

One reason former Rep. Jason Chaffetz resigned is Jeff Sessions’ handling of State documents.

In an interview with investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson in June, Jason Chaffetz, currently a Fox News contributor, said he was leaving Congress in part because the Deep State is still in charge. In some ways, it’s worse, he said, pointing to Jeff Sessions’ Justice Department.

Chaffetz told Attkisson, “Sadly, I don’t see much difference between the Trump administration and the Obama administration. I thought these floodgates would open up with all of the documents we wanted from the Department of State, the Department of Justice, the Pentagon. In many ways it’s almost worse, because we’re getting nothing.”

In terms of releasing documents, he finds this attorney general worse than the last one and he sees little difference between this administration and the Obama administration.

Chaffetz continues, “And that’s terribly frustrating. And with all due respect, the Attorney General, has not changed at all. I find him to be worse than what I saw with Loretta Lynch in terms of releasing documents and making things available. That’s just my experience and that’s not what I expected.”

Americans thought Trump would clean house, drain the swamp, but Deep State is still in charge.

Is it Trump and his staff or is it the Deep State?

  1. Some documents may be less available now because the executive branch is not under democratic control. The agencies fear real action could occur so they withhold.
