House GOP Considers Impeaching IRS Commissioner

House Republicans will consider impeaching IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, following accusations that he lied during a congressional testimony and did not comply with a subpoena, Politico’s Rachel Bade reported Friday. The lawmakers will hold two hearings in the coming weeks to discuss a potential impeachment process. Koskinen came under fire from conservatives in 2014 after allegations that the IRS specifically targeted Tea Party-affiliated organizations, making it difficult for them to obtain tax-exempt status.
