Alpine, UT - Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz says he’s not sure if documents exist to confirm that President Donald Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to shut down the FBI investigation into ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Chaffetz said Thursday in Utah that he hopes to find out from the U.S. Department of Justice within the next few weeks if they exist and if they’ll share them with the House Oversight Committee he chairs.

He made the comments from his home in Utah after announcing he’ll resign from Congress and leave by June 30.

The Republican says he hasn’t yet spoken to fired FBI Director James Comey about his invitation for Comey to testify next week at an oversight committee hearing.


Chaffetz is the chair of the committee that has promised to look into Trump’s ties to Russia.

Chaffetz says he’s skeptical about the report about the Comey memos but was concerned enough to launch the probe.

He says somebody else can lead the committee’s work when he leaves Congress.
