The IRS Scandal, Day 1243

IRS Logo 2Digital Journal, Attorney Joe Garza Declares Koskinen Impeachment Hearings "Unprecedented":

Koskinen stands for impeachment after accusations made by Republicans of failing to provide information to Congress and lying under oath during an investigation on rejected 501(c) statuses for Tea Party organizations. Should Koskinen be ousted, he will be the first executive-branch official impeached since 1876.

"This is an unprecedented maneuver," says Tax Attorney Joe Garza. "No group or individual has gone after an appointed official of this caliber in this way in recent memory."

The allegations stem from a Congressional investigation into IRS practices in 2013 when Republicans accused the IRS of targeting Tea Party Organizations by not issuing them 501(c) statuses.

"If what Republicans are saying is true -- that the IRS targeted Tea Party organizations in order to reduce the amount of money that could be donated to them -- then it is one of the most grotesque examples of Government corruption in modern times," said Garza.

Mr. Trump's secret IRS records have also been made public 'somehow', perhaps Mr. Kosinigen can explain this crime that had to be from his fiefdom.

What Obama's IRS did was unprecedented. Democrats keep denying anything took place no matter what the IG report said or what Koskinen admitted to.
