Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz is leaving his important role in Congress by the end of the month but he’ll remain in the public eye as he has signed to join Fox News Channel in a contributor role.
The soon-to-be former congressman will serve his last day in the U.S. House of Representatives on June 30.
The very next day, he will become the newest member of Fox News as a contributor providing political analysis, according to the network.
100% Fed Up reports:
FOX News could certainly benefit from Jason Chaffetz’s knowledge and his dogged determination and commitment to finding the truth behind our corrupt government leaders and their dirty dealings…
Chaffetz, who is the chairman of the powerful House Oversight Committee, had been linked to a job in Fox since he made a surprising announcement in April that he will cut short his current term and will not seek re-election in 2018.
As congressman, he was also a member of the House Judiciary Committee and the Homeland Security Committee.
He gained national attention with his role in several high-profile government investigations including the Benghazi terrorist attack, the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, and the IRS targeting scandal.
