Tue, Feb. 7, 2017: Trump meets with Rep. Jason Chaffetz

Rep. Jason Chaffetz urged President Donald Trump on Tuesday to reverse the designation of Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah during a face-to-face White House meeting and discussed a host of measures to reform the federal bureaucracy, but did not venture into any potential oversight of the Trump administration.

Chaffetz, who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said the president warned at the outset of the meeting — before the Utah Republican could sit down — that any oversight issues would not be part of their conversation. Chaffetz didn’t push back, he said.

“At the appropriate time, perhaps [I will] but while we have ongoing investigations that’s not what I was there to talk to the president about it,” Chaffetz said, noting the president had told him during a Republican retreat in Philadelphia previously that he should do his job as Oversight chairman.
