The IRS Scandal, Day 928

IRS Logo 2Leader & Times, Koskinen Needs to be Impeached, So Does Lynch and Numerous Others:

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen is in the sights of Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who is chairman of the powerful House Oversight Committee, which has been investigating the IRS for more than two years. Chaffetz said Koskinen has failed to comply with a congressional subpoena, allowed documents to be destroyed and misled the public.

The committee’s call for impeachment falls on the heels of a report from the U.S. Justice Department that said it “found no evidence that Lois Lerner or any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution.”

What a crock.

I second Sandy Daze's comment. I look in Instapundit's blog every day for your posts about the IRS. We cannot allow the IRS to abuse Americans because of their political ideology.

The idea that the administration can shield itself with prosecutorial discretion is certainly corrupt if not illegal. It certainly shows culpability at the highest level of the administration.
