Former GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz on Monday urged Republicans to “call up Chelsea Clinton” in response to President Donald Trump’s family being questioned by congressional investigators, 100% Fed Up reports.
During an interview on Fox & Friends, the former Utah congressman said, “Republicans need to get a backbone.”
“Every time the Democrats say they need to call up Jared Kushner or Don Jr., call up Chelsea Clinton, call up the Clintons,” he added.
He tells fellow Republicans that when Democrats say they want to investigate Donald Trump Jr., then they should “go up and bring Chelsea Clinton in there.”
Chaffetz, former chair of the House Oversight Committee, accuses the younger Clinton of being involved in the Benghazi situation and the scandals linking the Clinton Foundation.
He also praised President Trump for not citing executive privilege in the Russia investigation unlike the Obama administration has done in the past.
“I think the Trumps need to actually get a lot of credit for openness and transparency,” Chaffetz said.
