We knew this was coming, as the news first leaked several weeks ago.

Now, it has been made official.

Utah Representative Jason Chaffetz will not only not be seeking reelection, but he will not finish his current term.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) is expected announce Thursday that he is resigning before the end of this congressional term, according to three sources familiar with his plans.

Chaffetz currently serves as the chairman of the House Oversight Committee and is deeply embroiled in the ongoing investigation into potential Russian interference in the 2016 election, as well as possible entanglements of Donald Trump’s campaign staff and aides with Moscow.

When Chaffetz first announced that he would not seek reelection, he said it was because he wanted to spend more time with his family.

Sources are saying he will leave Congress on June 30.
