Chaffetz SLAPS Uncooperative OPM Head With Subpoena
House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform (HOGR) Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz is slapping a subpoena on Office of Personnel Management Acting Secretary Beth Cobert after waiting months for documents about the agency’s massive security breaches.
