House Republicans, enraged by the inaction that has hindered federal investigations into the IRS, introduced a resolution Tuesday to impeach Commissioner John Koskinen, charging him of lying under oath and failing to respond to subpoenas for evidence.
House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz declared in the four articles of impeachment that Koskinen “engaged in a pattern of conduct that is incompatible with his duties as an officer of the United States.”

The accusations follow numerous congressional probes into the IRS’ 2012 targeting of conservative groups, which GOP lawmakers argue the commissioner helped stonewall.
“Commissioner Koskinen violated the public trust. He failed to comply with a congressionally issued subpoena, documents were destroyed on his watch, and the public was consistently misled,” Chaffetz, R-Utah, said in a statement.
