Ahead of a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday, May 24 at 10:00 am on the allegations of misconduct against IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
“John Koskinen must be held accountable for his actions and those of the agency he oversees. Three years ago, Americans learned that the IRS targeted conservative groups simply for their beliefs. These groups were merely seeking to exercise their First Amendment rights and be involved in the public discourse to educate and train people in their communities. Lois Learner and other bureaucrats at the powerful agency tried to intimidate and discourage these conservatives from organized grassroots activism.”
“Congress has tried to get to the bottom of this scandal. Rather than comply with congressional subpoenas and tell the truth about what happened and why, Koskinen has been a roadblock. We hope that the committee moves forward on action against him.”
