Impeachment hearings will begin.
Days after the Justice Department concluded its investigation of the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups without a single charge filed, Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz introduced an impeachment resolution.
He said, “Commissioner Koskinen violated the public trust. He failed to comply with a congressionally issued subpoena, documents were destroyed on his watch, and the public was consistently misled.”
The resolution pointed to the 422 backup tapes which were destroyed possibly containing the emails of IRS official Lois Lerner.
Congressman Chaffetz said. “Impeachment is the appropriate tool to restore public confidence in the IRS and to protect the institutional interests of Congress.”
