Congressman Chaffetz faces opposition at town hall

Crowd protests outside

COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS, Utah (ABC 4 News) - On Thursday night, Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz faced a hostile crowd during his town hall.

Hundreds of people were turned away, and the crowd grew to more than 1,000 protestors outside Brighton High School.

Inside, Chaffetz — who chairs the House Oversight Committee — was pressed to investigate President Trump’s possible conflicts of interest.

Other people emphasized their support for the Bears Ears National Monument, which former President Obama declared recently and which Utah’s congressional delegation opposes.
