Following the introduction of a privileged resolution for the House to consider the removal of the commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service from office, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
“If House Republicans believe in oversight of the executive branch, particularly the IRS, which outrageously targeted Americans because of their ideological leanings, they absolutely must support this resolution. The IRS commissioner lied under oath during congressional investigations about Lois Lerner’s missing emails. He should lose his job. End of story.”
FreedomWorks will key vote in support of the impeachment resolution should it come to the floor when calculating its Congressional Scorecard for 2016. The scorecard is used to determine eligibility for the FreedomFighter Award, which recognizes Members of Congress who consistently vote to support economic freedom and individual liberty.
