House Conservatives Begin Trek To Impeach IRS Commissioner Koskinen

House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform leaders made their case Tuesday to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen rolled out their case for impeaching Koskinen for ignoring subpoenas and lying to Congress under oath on the IRS targeting of conservative groups during the 2010 and 2012 election campaigns.

Koskinen, who has told Congress he never sought the job, said he was too busy to accept his invitation to attend the hearing of the House Committee on the Judiciary. 

“Surely, this House should find it intolerable,” DeSantis testified. “As of today, not a single individual has been held accountable in any real way for what happened with the IRS.

This will further erode the power of the Congress, which is arguably at its historical nadir.”
