(Rick Bowmer | AP file photo) Former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, now a Fox News personality, is this week's guest on the "Utah Politics" podcast.

Former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz joins the podcast this week to discuss his brand new book.

In They Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste: The Truth About Disaster Liberalism, Chaffetz argues Democrats, and sometimes Republicans, use the pretense of an emergency situation to push through unrelated policy proposals.

“They take these crises and try to leverage those to do something they wouldn’t ever, ever be able to do otherwise,” says Chaffetz.

Chaffetz also talks about the massive infrastructure spending package proposed by President Joe Biden, and what it means to be a political conservative after four years of Donald Trump.

Additionally, Chaffetz talks about his new podcast “Jason in the House,” whether he’s planning on running against Sen. Mitt Romney in 2024, and former House Speaker John Boehner.
