JASON CHAFFETZ: I'm all about openness and transparency but you cannot use the tools and levers of government to go on these political witch hunts to just try to destroy people without some underlying evidence that there is something criminal that's gone on. And the doors that they are opening now, they will pay the political price over the long term. I think the American people get it, that you should not be able to use these as bludgeoning tools in a fishing expedition to try to hope that they can put and couple something together. And I think they're going to overreach, I think they have an insatiable desire to do something that they couldn't win at the ballot box.
