Washington, D.C.— The House Freedom Caucus released the following statement:

“After months of tireless efforts, the House Judiciary Committee will finally hold impeachment proceedings of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen next Wednesday.

This hearing next week will give every American the opportunity to hear John Koskinen answer under oath why he misled Congress, allowed evidence pertinent to an investigation to be destroyed, and defied Congressional subpoenas and preservation orders. It will also remove any lingering excuses for those who have been hesitant to proceed with this course of action.

For too long, Obama Administration officials have been able to get away with acts that would have dramatic consequences for ordinary Americans.The American people see two standards — one for the powerful and politically connected, and another for ordinary Americans. This is a critical opportunity for Congress to show it works for and answers to the American people."

Mission statement of the House Freedom Caucus:

“The House Freedom Caucus gives a voice to countless Americans who feel that Washington does not represent them. We support open, accountable and limited government, the Constitution and the rule of law, and policies that promote the liberty, safety, and prosperity of all Americans.”
