Tea Party Patriots Applauds House Freedom Caucus for Forcing Vote on IRS Commissioner Koskinen Impeachment


ATLANTA, Ga – Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement applauding the House Freedom Caucus decision to file a resolution to call for a full House vote on the impeachment of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

“Tea Party Patriots applauds and thanks Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) and the House Freedom Caucus for filing a privileged resolution that will ensure the full House votes on whether or not to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen for his misconduct in office. While we are disappointed with Speaker Paul Ryan and House leadership for failing to support Commissioner Koskinen’s impeachment and for making the privileged resolution necessary, we appreciate the Freedom Caucus’ determination to hold the IRS accountable for targeting Americans and the efforts to cover up the agency’s wrongdoing. Tea Party Patriots and our members are grateful that Rep. Fleming and the Freedom Caucus are willing to send a message to the lawless Obama Administration that we will continue to fight for accountability at the IRS.”
