IRS in the hot seat


Today, the Ways and Means Committee heard testimony from IRS Commissioner John Koskinen as to how his agency lost copies of emails sent by Lois Lerner and other IRS officials who targeted conservative non-profit groups. Mr. Koskinen claimed the emails were lost in computer crashes – which were convenient if these officials had something to hide. We’ve heard a lot of excuses from the IRS since this scandal was revealed last year, but this “dog-ate-my-emails” story might be the dumbest. Along with my fellow members of the Ways and Means Committee, I will continue investigating this issue until we learn the whole truth and until all those who broke the law face justice.
