Following reports that House conservatives, led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), are urging Republican leaders to allow a vote on the impeachment of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
“There shouldn’t even be a debate about this. John Koskinen lied under oath during the congressional inquiry into Lois Lerner, who was at the center of the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups, and her supposedly ‘lost’ emails. Congress also has an institutional obligation. The message being sent by inaction is that those who appear before a committee, lie or mislead lawmakers, and face no consequences at all. That’s a dangerous precedent.”
