Chaffetz on Leaks: 'Start Putting People in Handcuffs'
Jason Chaffetz urged the Justice Department to crack down even harder on leaks of classified information.
"They need to start putting people in handcuffs," the former Utah congressman told "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to run the Russia investigation against President Trump's campaign has no credibility on the leaker issue, Chaffetz stated.
Rosenstein promised earlier this week to prosecute leakers no matter who they are. That, Chaffetz said, is not believable since the Justice Department refused to prosecute Hillary Clinton for her email server scandal as well as possible perjury.
Thousands of criminal referrals from inspectors general to the Justice Department were ignored, Chaffetz recalled from his time as chairman of the House Oversight Committee.
"They don't prosecute these people," he said.
"The deep state does not like the fact that Donald Trump is trying to change the trajectory of the federal government in a place that is more compatible with what the American people want, " the congressman concluded.
