Rep. Jim Jordan: House will impeach IRS commissioner Koskinen

In remarks to a group of students from Young Americans for Freedom Saturday that were picked up by the Washington Examiner:

This Congress will impeach Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen, Rep. Jim Jordan, a member of the House Oversight Committee, told a group of students from the Young America's Foundation Saturday.

"It is something that has to be done," said the Ohio Republican. "If we don't hold some people accountable in the executive branch for the executive overreach we've seen in [the Obama] administration, then they'll never get the message."

There is more than ample evidence for impeachment, including lies Koskinen told Congress in sworn testimony and the destruction of backup tapes of Lois Lerner’s emails.

Breitbart notes that the departure of John Boehner seems to have made a difference in the movement to impeach Koskinen:

Three months ago Jordan, chairman of the Subcommittee on Health Care, Benefits and Administrative Rules of the House Oversight and Government Operations Committee, was only willing to say that the House “should consider impeaching” Koskinen.

Two months ago, in July, Jordan said the House should impeach Koskinen if President Obama doesn’t fire him.

With the resignation of Speaker Boehner, Jordan has changed verbs.

Now, instead of calling for the House to “consider impeaching” Koskinen, he is saying it “will impeach” Koskinen.

I look forward to an impeachment trial in the Senate.  Let’s see which Democrat senators want to defend him and the IRS.
