Fireworks Erupt After GOP Rep Tells IRS Boss His Personal Integrity Is in Question

Monday night at a evening congressional hearing on the Internal Revenue Service claims that Lois Lerner’s email’s were lost due to a computer crash, Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) confronted agency commissioner John Koskinen over whether he had contacted the FBI since he claimed he “can not say no crime was committed,” and that Lerner had pleaded the Fifth Amendment “to avoid criminal prosecution.”

Turner grilled Koskinen demanding to know why the FBI has not be contacted asking, “Will you call the FBI, integrity of your agency is absolutely at stake?” 

Turner went on to stress that Koskinen should responsibly handle the situation. 

“You should call the FBI. You should call for a special prosecutor,” he said.

After Koskinen insisted, “I’m not going to call the FBI,”  Turner said, “Then that is an issue of your personal integrity because the integrity of this agency and the concerns that American have of it is at stake.”
