It’s On! Congress Moves To IMPEACH Obama Crony…America Is CHEERING!
By Kathy Shaidle|September 14, 2016

In the unprecedented drama of this election campaign, even some conservative political junkies have probably forgotten about the IRS Tea Party scandal.

Somewhat incredibly, not everyone on Capitol Hill has let the controversy fade into history. They still want justice done, even if the odds are against them at this point.

Fox News reports:

House conservatives revived a long-shot effort Tuesday to oust IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, formally introducing an impeachment resolution expected to see a vote by the end of the week.

Rep. John Fleming, R-La., a sponsor of the drive, offered the measure under special procedures that put the House on track to vote Thursday on the effort.

Conservatives say Koskinen hampered Congress’ effort to investigate the IRS for tough assessments of Tea Party groups that sought tax exemptions several years ago.

Predictably, some establishment Republicans aren’t exactly cheering this move:

But GOP leaders are cool to the impeachment push, which stands little chance of succeeding. Some Republicans argue that an impeachment vote two months before elections risked irritating voters, while others said Koskinen deserved a full House Judiciary Committee probe before embarking on the seldom-used impeachment process.

Or is it possible that some Republican elites are hostile to “tea party” conservatives and don’t care much if they were singled out by the federal government for undue scrutiny?

Maybe in the end, an election of “President Trump” will serve as a verdict on this case all on its own.
