First Republican Turns On Trump As House Oversight Chair Says Congress Will Get Comey Memos

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) says he is ready to use his subpoena power if that is what it takes to get access to James Comey’s memos of his conversations with Donald Trump.

Chaffetz tweeted:

According to The New York Times, Comey immediately wrote a memo detailing his conversation after Trump made the request that the FBI investigation into Mike Flynn is dropped. If there is a memo, it is a government document, which means that Congress will get their hands on it.

The fact that Republican committee chairman wants the Comey memos could be the first sign of a big shift. The firing of James Comey along with the leaking of classified information to Russia, and the possibility of evidence existing that Trump tried to obstruct justice. The Republican firewall protecting Trump has been under relentless assault and is beginning to crumble.

If Republicans stick with Trump, they are going to go down with the sinking ship. Should the choice become Trump or their own seats, the odds are good that enough Republicans will turn on Trump to make something happen.
