House Committee Censures IRS Commissioner

Posted on June 24, 2016

On June 15, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee approved a resolution condemning and censuring IRS Commissioner John Koskinen and forwarded it to the full House for a vote.  

The House essentially wants to punish Koskinen for what it believes to be untrue testimony at prior congressional hearings.  Although the resolution was forwarded to the House for a vote, even if it is passed, it will have little force or effect to require IRS Commissioner Koskinen to resign or forfeit his pension and it is, essentially, the expression of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about how it feels about Commissioner Koskinen.

Do you think that IRS Commissioner Koskinen should be censured?  Do you think that a more vigorous penalty such as impeachment or forfeiture of his pension is appropriate?  Or do you think that this is simply political maneuvering?
