Capitol Report: House Oversight Committee chief Jason Chaffetz quitting Congress for Fox News?

It’s being speculated that Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the Utah Republican who heads the House Oversight Committee and announced in April he would not seek re-election in 2018, is headed for a job at Fox News.

“Let’s just say that when Jason told us he was headed to Fox FOX, -1.48% , no one was surprised,” a senior House Republican aide reportedly told the Washingtonian magazine.

On Twitter, there remained significant uncertainty that it made sense for a 50-year-old rising star of his party to willingly quit, rather than be chased from, his powerful legislative post for a post with an opprobrium-beset cable channel.
