Gohmert on House’s Failure to Impeach the IRS Commissioner
Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement on the vote in the U.S. House of Representatives to reject a floor vote on the impeachment of IRS Commissioner Koskinen and refer it, once again, to the House Judiciary Committee:
“The evidence appears quite clear that IRS Commissioner John Koskinen was not honest in his testimony to Congress, failed to keep promises he made to us, refused to properly look for the subpoenaed evidence in any productive way, all while being totally unrepentant. Now, after the American voters made clear they wanted the swamp drained and cleaned out, too many of the Republican majority sent a message that we may continue business as usual. Today was not necessarily a proud day for truth, justice, and what used to be the American way.”
Congressman Gohmert is the Chairman of the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations and the Vice Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. Prior to being elected to serve in Congress, he was elected to three terms as District Judge in Smith County, Texas and was appointed by then Texas Governor Rick Perry to complete a term as Chief Justice of the 12th Court of Appeals.
