Reports on Rep. Jason Chaffetz leaving before his term ends were overwhelming the media, with people wondering what the reason behind this could be.
Chaffetz, facing the terrible liberal pressure, noted that “at some point, you’ve got to get off this crazy train.”
“There’s always somebody doing something stupid somewhere, there’s always plenty of things to investigate and look at,” Chaffetz stated on Wednesday.
Chaffetz also pointed out that his family is the main reason for his early retirement.
“As you know, after careful consideration and long discussion with my wife, Julie, we agree the time has come for us to move on from this part of our life,” Chaffetz said at the time, saying he’s spent “more than 1,500 nights away” from his family and that he “just didn’t want to do it anymore.”
“After careful consideration and long discussion with my wife, Julie, we agree the time has come for us to move on from this part of our life,” he continues,” Chaffetz wrote in his resignation letter.
Chaffetz also pointed out that he didn’t see future in his position:
“I haven’t felt any compulsion to talk about my post-congressional life. I always promised that I would get in, serve, and get out,” Chaffetz said. “This is not supposed to be a lifetime appointment. I don’t want to get that Potomac fever and just get too caught up in myself or anything else.”
After being asked if he’ll continue working for Fox News, Chaffetz said he is “not here to talk about that yet.”
