Rep. Jason Chaffetz (Trump-UT) announced on Wednesday that he would not seek reerection. Chaffetz’s sudden decision to withdraw from public life at the very peak of his powers breathes new life into rumors that Chaffetz was compromised by Russian intelligence.
But this chatter is at odds w/ Team Chaffetz’s recent purchase of JasonChaffetz2028.com– which suggests Chaffetz still has future plans to lose a future presidential race:
2028 is curious, because it presupposes 1 of 3 scenarios:
- 2 Trump terms, followed by only 1 Pence term.
- Only 1 Trump term, followed by 2 Pence terms.
- Only 1 Trump term, followed by 2 Dem terms.
Whatever the case, MFP can now project that Chaffetz will end up on a ~corporate board, earning millions as a quasi-lobbyist– occasionally appearing on cable news to schlep ghostwritten books to unsuspecting, low-information xenophobic senior citizens.
