IRS Commissioner John Koskinen has been in the crosshairs of Republicans in Congress for several years now after taking over the agency following the Tea Party scandal.
After essentially admitting to obstruction of justice and lying to Congress, House leaders have had enough.
Here’s more from Washington Examiner:
Rep. Jim Jordan announced Tuesday he will call for a vote later today to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, setting up a vote this week in the House on impeachment.
“John Koskinen needs to be held accountable,” the Ohio Republican said at a forum hosted by Judicial Watch. “Later today on the House floor we will make the motion to impeach Mr. Koskinen.”
Jordan’s plan is to call up a resolution seeking Koskinen’s impeachment. The resolution will require some form of action by the House within two days, setting up a vote before lawmakers leave for the rest of the year.
If lawmakers challenged it — for example, by making a motion to table it — a vote would be held on that motion, and that vote would essentially become a proxy vote for impeachment.
