Jason Chaffetz said he would investigate Flynn and Russia – but he’s investigating media leaks instead

Amid a series of controversies around Russia-US links, the  Republican-led House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has vowed to take action, but has ended up investigating freedom of the press instead. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the committee, proudly tweeted on Friday that his team was "taking the lead" on Russia intelligence,  as well as the "mishandling of classified material" and issues surrounding former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
