Chaffetz is the Chairman of the powerful House Oversight Committee, who, you may remember, was ridiculous in his pursuit of the non-Benghazi story and Hillary Clinton, and who also had no interest at all in investigating Russian election hacking and ties to Trump– that guy, he announced Wednesday that he wouldn’t be seeking re-election, which is odd, given his position, but then today he hinted that he may resign his seat before his term is even up. What gives?
Don’t say ‘A Russian connection’, please don’t. It’s just too much with the Russians at this point.
Yea, well, sure enough, ‘A Russian connection’ is being bandied around:
How the hell deep does the Russian connection go?
Which, unfortunately, brings up the mysterious Ezra Cohen-Watnick. Recently the C.I.A. liaison to the White House was fired by Mr. Cohen-Watnick (he probably goes by Mr. Cohen), which is bizarre. And sources say that it was done in a nasty, mean-spirited way.
Ezra Cohen-Watnick was also all wrapped up in the Nunes completely bogus scandal that ended with Nunes recusing himself from the House Russian investigation. That ‘covert’ operation by the former D.I.A. operator, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, was a spectacular disaster.
How does this guy keep his job? Well, being close to Kushner probably helps.
Does the guy have a Russian connection? Check. His wife was a publicist for one Vladimir Putin. Russians, Russians, freaking Russians. You can’t turn around without banging into a goddamn Russian anymore.
And thanks to the Palmer Report for that last link. They have been doing nice work on digging into the malignant and incompetent mystery that is Ezra Cohen-Watnick
