Before Congress and the White House both turned red, Chaffetz was a feisty GOP attack dog; he targeted Hillary Clinton's handling of the bombing at the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi in 2012. "I trust you to find the best person to serve", Chaffetz wrote.
Chaffetz held a prominent leadership position within Congress as the chair of the House Oversight Committee, so his unexpected exit could leave a power vacuum to be filled by an up-and-coming Republican representative.
Chaffetz, who previously started a public relations firm and worked for a multi-level marketing company, Said he was returning to the private sector, but didn't give any indication in his interview about what business he would join.
North Korea says it 'will go to war' if United States provokes it
An official from South Korea's Defense Ministry couldn't immediately confirm whether the rocket was a new ICBM. China, on the other hand, acts as an economic bedrock for North Korea.
In 2015, Chaffetz took over the reins of the House Oversight Committee, leading investigations into Democrat Hillary Clinton. Kidd had raised $15,500 in recent months but was left with only $1,600 after spending most of it, according to his most recent fundraising reports.

He's also not so definitive about a political resurgence down the line; Politico reported Chaffetz's political team has begun snapping up URLs associated with potential future runs.

The Commission will not interfere with the possible British elections because they are "a domestic issue", the spokesman said.
Possible successors to Cheffetz as House oversight chairman other than Jordan include Reps.
"That is absolutely wrong, wrong, wrong".
Evans predicted a number of Republicans will line up to try to replace Chaffetz, including Provo Mayor John Curtis, former state GOP chair Thomas Wright, Utah's House Speaker Greg Hughes and state Sen. He added, "Republicans have a deep bench of talented candidates in Utah who are more than up to this challenge". Chaffetz proudly refused to use campaign funds to feed state delegates, as is traditional in the process of currying favor. Chaffetz has served in his current seat since 2008. The Utah lawmaker earned a bachelor's degree in communications from Brigham Young University and played football at the school. As Fusion found, Chaffetz owns a domain that may point to a 2028 presidential campaign. He announced he will not run for any political office in 2018.
