House Oversight Committee votes to censure IRS chief John Koskinen

June 15, 2016

 In an effort to make it look as though it is doing something about the IRS targeting scandal the House Oversight Committee voted to censure IRS chief John Koskinen. It will now be headed to the full House for a vote. Here is more:

The House Oversight Committee voted on party lines Wednesday to send a resolution censuring IRS Commissioner John Koskinen to the full House, amid a dispute over whether Koskinen could be stripped of his pension if the resolution is adopted by the House.

    As you can see there is a discussion about stripping him of his pension as well but there is some doubt as to whether or not this can be done without impeachment. While the conservative Republicans are pushing for impeachment I honestly believe the establishment Republicans are not really all that upset with their arch nemesis–namely the Tea Party–having been targeted in the first place, if they were they would have gone for impeachment.

  I think this is all a show being put on by the establishment Republicans in an attempt to make it appear as if they are doing something, while also appeasing the conservative Republicans, when in fact they are doing nothing.

 This will amount to nothing more than a slap on the wrist but do not worry the establishment Republicans have a backup plan:


malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium

    I see you are as cynical about the House as I am about the FBI today. No harm no foul for the GOP in getting rid of the Tea Party. Many ask what was the big deal in not getting tax exempt status. It was a very big deal. We couldn’t rent buses for rallies, rent large spaces, place ads.

      Yes it was a big deal and it could have cost us big time, and the establishment is okay with that in my opinion…

        Murphy’s law strikes again. The ruling elites thought they had eliminated any chance of real opposition by denying the electorate the ability to raise the necessary funds. Unfortunately they did not consider the possibility of someone with more than enough money to fund an attack.

        That certainly was the plan and it is ironic that after trying to protect themselves a man comes along who they can not stop and they are not coping with it well.
