Former Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz slammed the “Deep State” during a fiery interview Tuesday morning, saying “operatives” were sent to undermine his tenure on the House Oversight Committee.
Chaffetz was speaking with Fox News when he confirmed that “40 agents” attempted to “dig into his past” to “embarrass” him; adding “this is how the Deep State operates.”
“They did it to me personally,” said Chaffetz. “As a member of Congress when I was a chairman of the Oversight Committee, I had the Secret Service, more than 40 agents, delve into my background because they wanted to embarrass me; more than a dozen offices, the IRS.”
“I mean, they sent a spy essentially to just watch what I do,” he added.
