FreedomWorks Statement on Committee Vote to Censure IRS Commissioner

Following a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to censure IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“This is an important step toward holding the IRS accountable for its arrogant and despicable actions during the investigation into Lois Lerner and the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. We hope that this censure is not the end of the congressional action against him and the IRS. Koskinen, who has obstructed the congressional inquiry into this scandal, must be impeached. Our community expects nothing less.”
