Chaffetz: We Want DOJ Inspector General Investigating Leaks of Classified Info

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said on Fox News tonight he’ll be sending a letter to DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz about the mishandling of classified information surrounding the Michael Flynn scandal and resignation.

He told Martha MacCallum it’s important to find out how classified information is “migrating out into a non-classified setting,” especially “how does that information end up in the news media.”

Chaffetz pointed out that he also wants to look into the security situation at Mar-a-Lago due to issues surrounding the nature of certain sensitive information in that public space.

He said the standard is the same no matter who it is, saying people just can’t hand information out “like candy and favors to those in the news media.”
