Impeach IRS Commissioner Koskinen?

 Obama's Waffen Schutzstaffel  

House conservatives moved on Tuesday to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen over allegations that he misled investigators over the agency's inappropriate targeting of Tea Party groups.

Many Republicans are skeptical of the impeachment, however, and so the House Freedom Caucus isn't optimistic that leadership will take up their cause.

"I believe they are going to do a motion to refer to the Judiciary Committee or they are going to do a motion to table," Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, told reporters on Tuesday. "Either way, they are punting."
Rep. John Fleming, R-La., introduced the resolution to impeach Koskinen on Tuesday afternoon. "[Koskinen] engaged in a pattern of conduct that is incompatible with his duties as an officer of the United States," Fleming said on the floor.

The filing of the resolution is the culmination of years of investigation into how and why the IRS applied extra scrutiny of Tea Party groups that filed for tax-exempt status. His impeachment is chiefly favored by members of the House Freedom Caucus, who forced John Boehner into retirement last year, but it has spread beyond the caucus to include House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, and others who believe Koskinen oversaw the destruction of evidence that lawmakers were seeking as they investigated the targeting scandal.
A GOP controlled congress was unable to nail  director of the Exempt Organizations Unit Lois Lerner, the "trigger man."  I then have zero expectation that this charade is going anywhere.  I do have an active hope that President Trump's DOJ will put this, and myriad other crimes perped by the Obamunists, under the microscope and send them to the pokey.

All smoke and mirrors, it will never happen. It should've been done when the Commissioner flipped them the bird during his testimony and openly defied them.
If the repubics had any balls they would've impeached Holder when he was held in "Contempt of Congress".

This is the issue that flipped me into supporting Trump. The Civil Disservice is criminal disgrace and needs discipline through show trails and severe punishment. These perverts do much more harm to the nation than drug dealers.

How about a reality cable channel where some agency director or commissioner is publicly shamed with his crimes against America every night, before being sentenced to a decade of forced labor scavenging pitchblende at work camp in Montana.

I keep hoping that one of the ever growing list of abusive upper level bureaucrats will receive justice but inside I know it will never happen.

I tend to agree with you. It will take an "extra judicial action (ahem)," and that might not be a good thing. But, then again ...
