Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C., will make the ask. The chairman of the Republican Study Committee has quietly but urgently been circulating a letter inside the GOP conference to build support. He’s now got 50 congressmen signed onto the letter.
While Trump has fleshed out his cabinet, so far, he’s stayed hush about the fate of the IRS chief. And conservatives really want Koskinen’s head. “You have the authority to remove Commissioner Koskinen,” Walker writes to Trump, adding that “we encourage you to dismiss him in the most expedient manner practicable.”
Walker’s letter reintroduces that issue in the new 115th Congress, slamming the IRS for “improperly targeting conservative groups” and failing to “demonstrate that officials have definitively ceased targeting conservative groups.” And he’s building on last year’s failed impeachment effort launched by the House Freedom Caucus….
….A month into 2017 and Republicans haven’t repealed Obamacare and Koskinen still has his job. Walker’s RSC is trying to convince Trump to change that. If he fails though, then Koskinen could stay at the IRS until Nov. 12, 2017.
It is no secret that the IRS was used as a weapon to target Conservative groups under the Obama Administration. Everybody involved must be investigated and held accountable. The IRS even gave preferential treatment to Malik Obama who is linked to terrorist organization, Hamas.
