The IRS Scandal, Day 1225

IRS Logo 2Politico, GOP Negotiators Reach Deal to Postpone IRS Impeachment Vote:

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) have reached a tentative compromise to postpone a vote to impeach the IRS commissioner, sources familiar with the talks told POLITICO.

Under the terms of the emerging deal, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen would testify before the Judiciary panel next week, and any impeachment vote would likely be postponed until after the November election rather than take place on Thursday, the sources said.

This shows why the Tea Party was created and why Trump got the nomination. The establishment doesn't fight for its constituents.

"The establishment doesn't fight for its constituents." Let’s think about that for a moment. Presumably, Mr. wodun is purporting to speak for the Republican “establishment.” Granted the Republicans are split into at least two different wings, probably more. But I have yet to see any polling on the question of what the various factions of the Republican Party want vis-à-vis the proposed impeachment of the Commissioner. Has anyone? It seems to me that it would be important to know where the various constituents of the Republican Party stand on this issue, before bloviating that the "establishment" isn't supporting its membership.
