A resolution to censure IRS Commissioner Koskinen
WASHINGTON, D.C.—On May 18, in advance of the House Judiciary Committee’s May 24, 2016 hearing to examine misconduct by Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner John Koskinen, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) introduced a resolution (H. Res. 737) to censure Commissioner Koskinen. The resolution offers Congressional condemnation and disapproval of Mr. Koskinen for a pattern of conduct inconsistent with the trust and confidence placed in him as an Officer of the United States. The resolution formally censures Mr. Koskinen and urges his resignation or removal. The resolution also requires Mr. Koskinen to forfeit all rights to his government pension and any other federal benefits for which he is eligible.
Specifically, Commissioner Koskinen warrants Congressional disapproval for the following reasons:
In July 2015, Chairman Chaffetz, along with 51 members of Congress, sent a letter to President Obama calling for the removal of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. The White House did not respond. On October 27, 2015 Chairman Chaffetz introduced H.J. Res. 494 to begin proceedings in the U.S. House of Representatives to impeach Commissioner Koskinen. The resolution was referred to the House Judiciary Committee and currently has 69 co-sponsors. The Committee released a video outlining the timeline of key events in the IRS targeting scandal.
