House conservatives may ignore Ryan, attempt to impeach IRS commissioner

by Chad Pergram |  |  published on July 13, 2016

Members of the House Freedom Caucus may go over the head of House Republican leaders, and put a special resolution on the floor to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, congressional sources told Fox News Tuesday.

Many conservatives have begged for the House Judiciary Committee to try to impeach Koskinen, but Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and members of the House GOP leadership have been not been receptive to the idea.

Congressional Republicans have sought to impeach Koskinen over grounds he intentionally ignored and “lied” to Congress about the agency’s 2010 targeting scandal.

    Going around the rino leadership is the only way that the BO fundamental agenda of destruction has been stopped at all. So let em unite against Paul Ryan or Rat Ryan as I refer to the little weasel. He is an impediment and NOT a help in any opposition to the current administration and the rino agenda. Like Hillary who really is a criminal who has done harm to legal citizens of this country, this man is guilty of using the IRS as a weapon against legal citizens. Impeach him now.

    Those Rinosare this country’s problem and they need impeachment. All this tells us is they are all in bed together and are Corupt! Their a disgrace

    I’ll believe it when I see it. These guys are spineless. It would be fabulous if they’d finally do something worthwhile!!

  • shirleypatriot

    FIRE HIM!!!

    Something in the government smells to high heaven when it comes to punishing the “elite.” This guy should be impeached, Hillary in jail, the FBI director let go and Lynch fired for not doing her job. Yet none of them are touched and the Republicans refuse to act. They remain spineless. Just when it seems they are growing a spine they hold true to form and don’t act!

  • This man [ Koskinen ] is the most arrogant, stuff shirt I have every seen. When he spoke to the committee, he had this tiny smile on his face and his eyes seem to show him as a liar. This is what I saw [ his demeanor ] and have no trust in this guy.I feel he needs to be impeached. Am I wrong?

    As we head towards election day the House Republicans need to focus on what will help them and Donald Trump win the election. It would probably be better to hold off on impeachment efforts until after the election.

    Ryan joined Roberts and Comey and proved that the fix is in on anything. Ryan needs to get the same thing that Boehner got.
    I think that the Rino’s in the GOP are doing everything they can do to loose the House and Senate and to make sure Hillary wins.

  • Delia Holloway

    Ryan needs to go home, period.

  • rockcut

    Does the GOP ever do anything worth while. It is always negative.

  • teaman

    When are you conservatives going to get rid of all the RINOs like Ryan? Koskinen should be impeached, fired, and blackballed from ever working for the Gooberment in any way possible!

    • SDofAZ

      And take his pension away. Too many of these turds still walk away with much more than the average citizen will ever have. That is wrong when they are traitors, liars, cheats, and thieves!

  • Rafael

    When your congressman or senator fail to you what you would do, you vote him or her out of office. Is Ryan up for re-election this year??? Is that’s why he’s man-up as a signal that he’s all that??? Vote the SOB out Wisconsin!!! He’s a lying democRat!!!

    • Skip Michael

      Yes he is. I have donated to his opponent. His name is Paul Nehlen
      I gave as much as I could.

      • Rafael

        That’s how we fix what Washington can’t!!! All fixed at the local level! Wish people pay more attention!!!

  • Rodney Steward

    It’s time for congress to do their jobs, hang the B-TARD, we would be! Now U see why every bodies fed up with the system, the law is the law and it’s the SAME foe EVERYONE, even the Clinton’s!

    Impeach Koskinen, throw his sorry a_s in jail and for good measure also imprison Lerner. What a worthless bunch of lackeys we have (not)representing us. The DOJ and FBI are also in Oshamus’ pocket as evidenced by there actions regarding Billery.

    • maxx

      No more impeachment. Just plaid “firing” like in the private sector where we the people work.

    • SDofAZ

      The presidents in the past all managed the agencies but thanks to BO we can clearly see this is NOT WISE. BO has twisted and manipulated these agencies clearly into something that is far from their original mandates intented. He has used all fo them and placed his minions at their heads to improve his fundamental destruction of this country. And the agencies were a fundamental tool in his efforts quite obviously.

  • billrauh

    They need to impeach Comey Lynch and Obama. No they go after this guy. I guess they think this will keep the public happy. HELL NO!!!

    • shirleypatriot

      It will help!! Coskinen, Lynch & Obama! I’m not sure yet about Comey…he just might be using the backdoor to get rid of Hillary.

      • SDofAZ

        No Comey was promised something, he made a deal! And that is from some internal sources!

    • SDofAZ

      We know the rinos and dem wit dem lemmings are totally worthless. Vote em out. After McCain hard in AZ this year. Kelli Ward is his pain the ass and she is eating his lunch. Rat Ryan has a good contender and I sincerely hope WI is as fed up with him as AZ is with McCain. And last but far from least is Pelosi. CA needs to vote for anyone but her. She has been in the house how many decades?

  • skHurricane

    Koskinen should be impeached for lying to the Judiciary committee and targeting individuals who owned businesses especially (conservatives). Why in the world can’t these crooks be thrown out of office. When someone in the government system why is it so hard to fire them. SHAMEFUL SHOWS A LACK OF LEGAL JUSTICE!!!!!

    • maxx

      No government office or employment position should be protected from termination by the employer. For government that is “we the people” are the employer. Just fire the SOB. Impeachment is pure political BS.

        That is one reason that WDC is afraid of with Trump.

      The hell with impeachment , fire the bass turd and take away his benefits would be the best punishment.

  • Jerry

    Impeach? Hell arrest and jail for obstruction of justice, that lying piece of steaming shit

  • otoman

    Ryan is a bigger traitor than Boehner and needs to be recalled by the people of Wisconsin need to see that they have been made a fool of by Ryan. Another liberal sympathizer pretending to be a republican.

      Ryan is up for reelection in November. He does have an opponent for the primary named Paul Nehlen a very conservative wealthy businessman. Normally Ryan never has a meaningful opponent. Pray for an upset.
