The camera-hogging congresscritter wants a full-scale probe of a tweet. Yes, a tweet.

a months-old tweet from his state’s Bryce Canyon National Park.

Chaffetz reportedly suspects that the tweet, which was posted in December the day after President Obama designated the more than 1.35-million-acre Bears Ears National Monument in southern Utah, may reveal that the park officials had advanced notice.

“Welcome to the family Bears Ears (& Gold Butte) NM! A hopeful slot in our front desk maps has long been held for you,” the account tweeted.

An attached picture with the tweet showed what appeared to be an empty map slot, labeled “Bears Ears.”

Chaffetz questioned the timing of the tweet, which mentions a slot that “long been held.”

“The White House is telling the governor as well as the congressional offices that no decisions had been made — that it was still an open question — so how is it [Bryce Canyon National Park officials] were already ready to go with that information?” Chaffetz asked in a letter to Bryce Canyon’s superintendent. “The timing is serious.”

Bryce Canyon’s interim superintendent Sue Fritzke insists the park did not receive advance notice and that the tweet was an innocent welcome notice.

“When we have another piece of land in the park service that is close by, we will reach out and welcome them to the federal family, and let them know we are here and interested in connecting,” Fritzke said, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

    Let’s look at this and not at the ties the president has with Russia. I get it, you’re really desperate for a distraction. The ship is sinking and you want people to think … well, whatever, just don’t think about the sinking ship you’re on.

    • Mike

      4 years of this is really gonna suck … I can’t imagine how confused the nation will be after 4 years of InfoWars talking points, Breitbart morality lectures, and constant lies every time Trump opens his mouth…we’re doomed.

      • Devil Dawg 223

        Now add 4 more years and controlling Congress no where in sight so yeah, its going to suck for ya’ll big tine. Trust me,. We dealt with it for 8 years but controlled the House than the Senate. Since you all went so far left and support anarchy, Americans, even the Dems I know, have seen how dark the progressive agenda truly is.

        • Mike

          You must be a child (and not a very bright one)…little advice, watch out what you wish for, you might get it.

        • granpa.usthai

          it’s a hell of a lot darker when a not so liberal nation like the UK turns out the lights for a FAKE leader to speak at their Parliament.

    why not concentrate on important stuff, like:
    WTF are the hard working taxpayers in the USA having to pay for the excellent healthcare package of the ‘representatives’ of the people FIRST and inferior healthcare for themselves afterwards?

    pass a law for LIAR trump to sign that gives ALL people in America the exact same healthcare as the ‘representatives’ with 0 cost.

  • News Reporter

    Sorry to hear about Alan’s passing. I didn’t like the guy’s politics of murdering unborn babies, encouraging domestic terrorism like black lives matter and the Occupy movements, refusing to call out anyone in his own party. So I guess I didn’t like the guy. Hope he finds redemption in his new afterlife.

    • whatthe46

      maybe you should be worrying about the real domestic terrorism instead of the one you imagine in your head. America is sick and tired of the neo-pussies, kkklown and whiteshitheads, that commit domestic terrorism against people worshiping in their own churches, threatening to blow up JCC’s, buildings and murder Jews (i.e., Oklahoma) shooting babies in schools and burning churches, murder of innocent people. and when it comes to party lines, you support an inbred who admits to grabbing women by the pussy, likely had sex with his own daughter, a fraud and pathological liar among others. so, before you hope whatever in regards to Alan, you should be worried about your own pathetic soul if there’s one there.

      You SLURRED him in the first fricking line of your phony note – you are using his death to spread your hate. I’m sure you think you are cute and funny. You are not.

      I wish there was a hell.

  • npeben

    So what if they did have advance notice? What would it matter…then what? Is it “top secret” to plan a national park? So many more issues to investigate.

    • Dwendt44

      my first thought was that they’ve been advocating this action for a long time.
      Nothing odd, malicious, or evil about that.

    • Jack E Raynbeau

      It matters greatly to the majority of Utah voters who are easily distracted by shiny objects. These are the same “family values” hypocrites who voted for a pu$$y grabber.

      • Devil Dawg 223

        That’s all you got? Take a guy that talked smack over a lying sociopath and enabler of a real predator.

        • Jack E Raynbeau

          Enabler? You keep confirming why Trump loves the uneducated.

          • Devil Dawg 223

            Good one. Lmao

  • Gcj8

    RIP Alan. Seemed like a very nice man.

  • Yeti

    A VERY respectful man & a “leftie” that i respected…. He made me scratch my head as it shook back ‘n forth many times….
    He was respectful just the same and just DID NOT fit eith the actions of the “leftie crowd” of today….
    I appreciated him very much despite his upside-down thinking!
    .
    Prayers to his family as he WILL BE MISSED….. :-(

    Reopen Guantanamo, there’s some gift-shop employees in New Mexico that need imprisonment! Jeez this guy’s pathetic.

    CotBoy RM continues to embarrass the sane people of my state but we are outnumbered. As long as he has RM (Republican-Mormon) after his name he will be elected for life. He will likely go for a senate seat when Hatch dies.

    The only way we can neuter this little clown is to win the House.

      You are aware you just LOST the White House correct? Why are leftist so uninformed? What you really need is Congress, but assuming you know that is NO where in sight. 2018 Mid Terms will push it even farther away. Keep up the great work.

      • mea_mark

        Derp … the House is part of congress. You should lighten up on the projection.

      • William

        When one considers Cheeto-molester will likely be impeached before the year is up, do you really think mid-terms are an issue? By the way. How’s that wall Mexico is going to pay for coming along? Oh and that “repeal Obama-care on day one”? You clowns got suckered. https://gma.yahoo.com/white-house-chief-staff-reached-fbi-dispute-trump-122906600–abc-news-topstories.html#

      • Jack E Raynbeau

        Do you realize that the House is part of congress? Without a Republican controlled House CotBoy loses his position.

        Trump loves his uneducated supporters. It’s his base.

      • granpa.usthai

        are you aware that LIAR trump LOST the popular vote to Lady Clinton by 3,000,000 votes?

        and that there are 19 states that don’t even have a total population of 3,000,000 people (men, women, children)?

        and 4 US Territories don’t even have a total population of 3,000,000 people (men, women, children)?

        why are RWNJ so damn stupid, they’ll even try to legitimize a FAKE leader that is selected by the republican electoral, not ELECTED by the MAJORITY of the people?
