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."
