Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, got one last dig at Hillary Clinton during the inauguration of President Donald Trump on Friday.

Chaffetz posted a photo of a screen shot from Fox News of him shaking the former secretary of State’s hand. While on the surface it may look magnanimous, the caption that the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee put was not as gracious:

“So pleased she is not the President. I thanked her for her service and wished her luck. The investigation continues,” he wrote.

Chaffetz also tweeted in October that the case of Clinton’s emails was re-opened when in fact FBI Director James Comey only said they had discovered emails in an unrelated investigation.
