IRS Commissioner Koskinen impeachment vote still likely

Washington ExaminerRep. Tim Huelskamp will call for a post-election vote to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen when Congress returns from Thanksgiving recess, he told the Washington Examiner. Huelskamp said Koskinen could pre-empt a vote by announcing he will retire when Republican President-elect Trump takes office in January. "But barring that, I anticipate that two weeks from now we will introduce that resolution," Huelskamp said.

Chances of Koskinen deciding to resign seem low. On the other hand, chances of the Republicans passing an impeachment resolution that will almost certainly die in the Senate also seem low.

Still, it's a choice between that and no punishment at all for covering up the political abuse of the agency for 5 years. Impeach him and let the Senate do what it will.
