Hearings to determine whether IRS Commissioner John Koskinen should be impeached for misconduct will soon be underway on Capitol Hill.
A resolutionto impeach Koskinen was introduced last year by House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz over the stonewalling and obstruction of ongoing congressional investigations into IRS targeting of conservative groups. Now, the House Judiciary Committee will hold two hearings on the resolution and will determine whether to proceed with impeachment.
The Committee argues Koskinen “failed to comply with a congressional subpoena which resulted in destruction of key evidence, made false statements during his sworn congressional testimony, and did not notify Congress that Lois Lerner’s emails were missing.” The first hearing will examine a lengthy Oversight Committee report detailing Koskinen’s conduct and a second hearing will bring in outside witnesses to determine whether “further congressional action is warranted.”
I expect this to result in little to nothing just like Lois Lerner who ended up resigning without a day in jail. The foot dragging and coverups by this administration is well documented and those coming under investigation just blow off these hearing and tell them they will not comply.
