Loony Dem Peddles New Russian Conspiracy Theory

A Democratic Party spokeswoman said Wednesday that Republican Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz’s decision not to seek re-election “raises questions” about whether Russia has dirt on him.

Adrienne Watson, the Democratic National Committee’s deputy communications director, retweeted conspiracy theorist Louise Mensch’s tweet that said, “Sources say there is kompromat on [Jason Chaffetz]; that this is why he turned and the [FBI] know it.”

Kompromat is a Russian term which means compromising material used to force someone to work for Russia.

In her retweet, Watson wrote, “Chaffetz not seeking re-election will raise more questions about this.”
