House Republicans move to impeach Obama’s IRS Commissioner   October 28, 2015

House Republicans Tuesday introduced a resolution to impeach Obama IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, accused of lying under oath to cover up IRS targeting of conservative groups and of not producing key evidence that was subpoenaed.
Fox News has the details:
House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, and 18 other committee members introduced the resolution to begin impeachment proceedings. In doing so, they followed through on a threat first made over the summer, when Republicans accused the IRS leader of making inaccurate statements to Congress regarding the Tea Party targeting scandal and its aftermath.
“Commissioner Koskinen violated the public trust,” Chaffetz said in a statement Tuesday. “He failed to comply with a congressionally issued subpoena, documents were destroyed on his watch, and the public was consistently misled.
“Impeachment is the appropriate tool to restore public confidence in the IRS and to protect the institutional interests of Congress.”
