Trey Gowdy Eviscerates IRS Commissioner

Trey Gowdy Eviscerates IRS Commissioner

Wednesday at a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee hearing on the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) would not let IRS Commissioner John Koskinen off the hook over his failure to bring acceptable answers to Congress about the supposed loss of former IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails. 

The South Carolina Republican warned the IRS commissioners, “Words have consequences,” as he hammered Koskinen for trying to claim he did not pursue what happened to the emails because he did not want to interfere with the Inspector General investigation saying “people site ongoing IG investigations when it suits them to not corporate” 

Gowdy concluded by saying he was “stunned” Koskinen had the nerve to bring up the plummeting morale of IRS employees, saying the employees might have better morale if they worked on their case loads instead of trying to illegally use the power of the IRS to overturn Supreme Court decisions they disagree with.
