In responding to revelations that the Secret Service inappropriately accessed and tried to leak private information about him, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) on Thursday reiterated his concerns about the agency's trustworthiness.

"I worry if they're doing this to me, what are they doing to other people?" Chaffetz told MSNBC.

On Wednesday, the Department of Homeland Security revealed that dozens of Secret Service personnel accessed Chaffetz's file, even though only four of them may have had the authority to do so. 

One senior employee even suggested leaking "embarrassing" information about him "just to be fair." Chaffetz is the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which conducts oversight into the agency's operations.

Watch Chaffetz's remarks above.
