Utah’s Chaffetz calls for IRS commissioner’s resignation

Washington • House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz on Monday called for the resignation of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen and short of that, threatened possible impeachment or holding the commissioner in contempt of Congress.

Koskinen, Chaffetz charged, failed to produce documents as requested under congressional subpoena and made false statements to Congress regarding emails from the former head of the Exempt Organizations Unit that critics say unfairly targeted conservative groups in the 2012 elections. About 24,000 emails are missing, the Oversight chairman contends.

"Mr. Koskinen should no longer be the IRS commissioner," Chaffetz said Monday. "We have asked the president to remove Mr. Koskinen from office."

Utahns in Congress angry over Iran deal

Congressional Republicans responded with frustration and skepticism to a newly announced accord with Iran meant to curb its nuclear ambitions in exchange for an easing of financial sanctions.

But it will be difficult for them to derail the deal announced by the United States and a team of international partners early Tuesday.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, believes it is worth a try.

"My initial read is we are giving Iran everything it wanted. They get time and money to develop a bomb and that is totally unacceptable," he said Tuesday morning. "The president has more than a sales job ahead of him."

Chaffetz Brings Bipartisanship Back to Oversight Panel

Jason Chaffetz first came to Congress in 2009 with a specific goal in mind: chair the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Just six years later, he’s taken over the helm of the powerful panel, and tried to do a bit of reform.

The committee was famously contentious during the chairmanship of Chaffetz’s predecessor, Darrell Issa, who often rankled Democrats on the panel and was a thorn in the side of the Obama administration, conducting what it viewed as overly partisan, less than substantive investigations. Among the high-profile matters it spotlighted were the IRS singling out conservative groups for extra scrutiny, the Justice Department’s “Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal and the 2012 Benghazi attacks. Republicans argue that Issa did important work on the committee and led necessary, substantive investigations, though there is little disagreement that he was a fierce partisan warrior.
