Utah Attorney General Under Investigation on Monday's Access Utah
Utah Attorney General John Swallow is the subject of a federal and state investigation into a series of allegations, including that he helped broker deals to assist a businessman suspected of fraud and that he promised protection to potential campaign donors to his predecessor, Mark Shurtleff. House Democrats are calling for his impeachment and point to the case in renewing their call for ethics reform. Some Republicans are calling for Swallow accept paid leave or resign, and at least one, Rep. Spencer Cox, says the House should consider impeachment. The Attorney General insists that he broke no laws and says he has no plans to quit.
Monday on Access Utah we’ll ask you what you think. Our guests will include Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo; House Minority Leader Jennifer Seelig, D-Salt Lake City; and Rep. Cox, R-Fairview.
