Former Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah said the “deep state” has tried to “embarrass” him by using the government to dig into his personal past.

“There is a concerted effort. Remember, when [President] Donald Trump first started, there were leaks. There were just absolute leaks that were going on,” Chaffetz said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The president would have a discussion with a foreign leader — that would get out, declassified information,” he added. “This is how the deep state operates.”

Chaffetz claimed he was targeted by the Secret Service and Internal Revenue Service and said the government sent a spy to monitor his activities.
