Washington Rep. Jason Chaffetz says he's increased his security after receiving death threats following his public comments about the FBI continuing its investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of private email servers.

Clinton's campaign had suggested its surrogates go after Chaffetz, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, for characterizing a letter from the FBI as re-opening the probe of Clinton; the FBI has never closed that investigation.

Chaffetz, R-Utah, didn't want to discuss the specific threats Tuesday, other than saying there was more than one and he has alerted the Capitol Police as well as local authorities.

"Unfortunately, I have had some death threats," Chaffetz said. "Most people want to express their opinions in very volatile situations but you get some people who are a little too aggressive and I've turned those over to the authorities to deal with."

Who has to be dumb enough to send death threats to a chairman of the House Committee?

Probably some 12 year old who has too much time alone with their computer. This is nothing credible, just some idle game playing.

But, of course, the Trump side will blow this up to say the Clinton Death Squad is behind it !

Hillary is inciting death threats with her irrational comments directed at Chaffetz.

Or maybe it was someone from the Trump camp, trying to make it look like a Democrat did it to further discredit Hillary.


Or, maybe it never happened at all. In this strange election, all bets are off.

I wonder how many of these were from elected officials or those running for office? It seems many on the GOP side are always making veiled death threats (Trump, Burr, ...etc).

Sigh. You do realize that countless people (including political opponents, their surrogates, sexual assault victims) opposing Trump have gotten gazillions of death and rape threats? It's been well documented.
