One congressman has had enough of Obama’s delays on the impeachment hearings of one of President Barack Obama’s top officials at the IRS, John Koskinen and he’s ready to take action!
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio is calling for the impeachment of Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen over his repeated failures to preserve and present evidence and deceiving lawmakers in testimony before Congress.
Koskinen lied to Congress about his role in the IRS’s targeting of conservative organizations applying for tax-exempt status.
Jordan said Koskinen failed with every single duty he had and claimed that up to 24,000 critical emails were destroyed on Koskinen’s watch.
Jordan said Koskinen has a consistent pattern of obstruction including the destruction of up to 24,000 emails on Koskinen’s watch that may well have been critical to the congressional investigation into the IRS.
“On his watch, 400 back-up tapes are destroyed,” Jordan told WND and Radio America. “He had the duty to preserve the documents with preservation orders put in place. He had a duty to produce them with two subpoenas asking for the documents.”
“He had a duty to testify accurately, which he did not. He had the duty to correct the record when he testified in an inaccurate fashion and he had a duty to tell us in a timely manner when in fact they had destroyed the documents and lost the documents. He failed every single duty he had, and it seems to me, when you put all that record together, he should be impeached.”
Conservative Tribune reports that Jordan went on to say that there is no way any taxpayer being audited could lose or destroy any critical documents and get away with it. The “big-shot commissioner” that the president brought in to clean up the IRS should have to abide by the same rules that citizens must obey.
Jordan said the situation demands “decisive action,” adding that the legislative branch is “long overdue” in sending Obama a clear message.
“Right now, the executive branch is trampling all over the legislative branch,” he said, noting there was no adequate checks and balances system in place. And something needs to be done about it.
He’s right. This scandal has been shoved under the rug just like every single Obama scandal to date.
