House Oversight chairman will resign in June

Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz says he will resign his congressional seat effective June 30.

Chaffetz said last month that he would not seek re-election in 2018 and that he was considering leaving office early.

The Washingtonian reported in May that Chaffetz told colleagues he planned to take an on-air role at Fox News as early as July.

Chaffetz, a Republican, said in a letter sent to media and constituents that his last day will be June 30.

Chaffetz requested those memos and other records from the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday.

"I started poking around to see what I might be worth and what sort of possibilities are there", Chaffetz said in April.

On Wednesday, as the Capitol was increasingly gripped by reports that President Donald Trump had pressured former FBI Director James B. Comey to quash an ongoing investigation, Chaffetz said he would invite Comey to testify in front of his committee next week. In one of these memos, Comey wrote that Trump suggested he drop the agency's investigation into Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go", Mr. Trump told Mr. Comey, according to the memo.

While Rep. Jason Chaffetz joined his colleagues on Capitol Hill in hailing the choice of a special counsel in the Russian Federation investigation, he was not so sure of the need for one.

I recognize that very few people get the opportunity you've given me; I will be forever grateful for the trust and confidence voters placed in me to serve five terms in the U.S. Congress.
