Did you read this part of your linked article?
"Congress had initially approved the Palestinian funding in budget years 2015 and 2016, but at least two GOP lawmakers — Ed Royce of California, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Kay Granger of Texas, who sits on the House Appropriations Committee — had placed holds on it over moves the Palestinian Authority had taken to seek membership in international organizations. Congressional holds are generally respected by the executive branch but are not legally binding after funds have been allocated."
Sounds like a couple of Tea Party guys were trying to play tough guy, nothing more. Maybe Chaffetz can start one of his dimwitted congressional investigations anyway though. He's gotta have something to do, and he's certainly not going to investigate Trump for anything.
