Rep. Fleming: IRS commissioner’s actions ‘warrant impeachment, trial and removal…’
Member of the House Freedom Caucus Rep. John Fleming (R-La.) Tuesday said the actions of President Obama’s IRS Commissioner John Koskinen “warrant impeachment, trial and removal from office” for the role the commissioner played in covering up the IRS scandal that targeted Americans for their political beliefs and introduced under a privileged motion a resolution to impeach the public official.
The House now has two legislative days to consider the issue, with the vote expected Thursday. House GOP Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington said the conference would meet Thursday morning to discuss the resolution.
Fleming said Koskinen had made a “series of false and misleading statements” to House investigators and failed to fully cooperate with their requests for emails and other information related to a probe of the IRS’ handling of applications from conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.
Fleming, who is running for the Senate, said Koskinen’s statements and actions “warrant impeachment, trial and removal from office.”
President Obama’s IRS Commissioner John Koskinen stonewalled congressional investigation into the bureau targeting scandal that harassed Americans for their political beliefs and still has not been held accountable to taxpayers.
