GOP leaders 'afraid' to take on Obama, IRS

by Greg Corombos
(United States)

House conservatives are making the case for the impeachment of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen ahead of Thursday’s debate, and one of them is also blasting Republican leaders for failing to hold Obama administration official accountable for anything and even being “afraid” of the administration.


On Tuesday, Reps. John Fleming, R-La., and Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., introduced a privileged resolution on the impeachment of Koskinen. A privileged resolution requires a floor vote and is not subject to the scheduling priorities of House leaders.

Huelskamp told WND and Radio America the case for Koskinen’s ouster is open and shut.

“Back in 2012, the IRS was misused, particularly by Lois Lerner and perhaps others above her,” he said. “They targeted political opponents and targeted them through misuse of the IRS. In response to that, the president appointed a new commissioner who promised to clean up the mess, but he made it worse.

“Mr. Koskinen came in and then covered up the mess, hindered the investigation. He oversaw the the deletion of perhaps thousands of emails, perjured himself, lied to Congress and the American public. At the end of the day, I believe these are reasons he should lose his job. If we’re going to get the federal government under control, no one should be above the law, particularly the IRS commissioner.”

Furthermore, Huelskamp said the average U.S. citizen could not get away with breaking the law, destroying evidence and refusing to appear before government officials without penalty, and neither should Koskinen.

“Someone in the administration came and lied to Congress and covered up the investigation that was going on internally in the IRS and oversaw the deletion of 422 tapes, up to 24,000 emails. As George Will pointed out, if Congress doesn’t take this head-on, they are becoming obsolete,” he said.
