Impeach IRS Commissioner Koskinen

December 8, 2016
Press Release

Congressman Lamborn released the following statement after the House voted to consider articles of impeachment for IRS Commissioner John Koskinen:

"The IRS intentionally and systematically used their position of power to target conservative groups based on their political beliefs. Though John Koskinen was brought in to restore the trust of the American people, he has continued to withhold evidence, ignore subpoenas, and stonewall congressional investigations into the IRS targeting scandal.

These actions all together indicate that IRS John Koskinen needs to be removed from office. I have been vocal throughout the past months pushing for Mr. Koskinen's impeachment, and I voted to continue these proceedings. The evidence against the IRS Commissioner is sufficient to remove him from office—we do not need more hearings to determine what we already know."
