Fox News Channel has signed soon-to-be former Rep. Jason Chaffetz to be a contributor, offering political analysis for the nation’s leading cable news provider and its sister channel, Fox Business Network. The Utah Republican’s new gig begins Saturday.
“Mr. Chaffetz represented Utah’s 3rd Congressional District beginning in November 2008 until his recent resignation, which will end on June 30. During his time as congressman, he served as the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, [and] was a member of the House Judiciary Committee. He also served on the Homeland Security Committee,” Fox News noted Wednesday.
“Mr. Chaffetz had an integral role in many government investigations, including the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, the Benghazi terrorist attack, the IRS targeting scandal and the Secret Service investigation. Prior to running for Congress in 2008, Mr. Chaffetz worked as chief of staff to former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman,” the network said.
