IRS chief: Iíve never spoken to Lois Lerner
washington times ^ | 5/23/16 | Stephen Dinan

Posted on 05/23/2016 1:49:24 PM PDT by Nachum

RS Commissioner John Koskinen has declined to testify in his own defense at a congressional hearing Tuesday, but insisted in a statement that his bungling of a subpoena doesn’t rise to the level of “treason, or high crimes and misdemeanors” needed for him to be impeached.

The Judiciary Committee hearing is being viewed by some House Republicans as the precursor to impeachment, with the House’s top investigator saying Mr. Koskinen defied a congressional subpoena that demanded all of former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner’s emails be preserved as part of the investigation into tea party targeting.

But Mr. Koskinen, who said his schedule is too crowded for him to be able to appear on Tuesday, said the allegations against him are “unwarranted,” and no matter what, they don’t rise to the level of impeachment.

Mr. Koskinen, I don't think your opinion matters at all. You don't get to make that call.

How DARE the little people (Congress) try to tamper with the King’s men. Koskinen KNOWS he is untouchable and he also KNOWS Congress is scared SH*TLESS of him.

An arrogant, disrespectful, lying, indignant, retromingent SOB. Impeach his butt and give him an orange jumpsuit after his mug shot.

No, I didn’t. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire.
I didn’t have enough money for cab fare.
My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners.
An old friend came in from out of town.
Someone stole my car.
There was an earthquake. A terrible flood.
Locusts! IT WASN’T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!

Oh and it was Bush’s fault.

his schedule is too crowded

He better start clearing out his schedule because come January, Trump will make sure he has plenty of free time.

“I’ve never spoken to...”

Sounds like weasel words to me. “We’ve never spoken...” (But I’ve emailed, voice-mailed, and texted her dozens of times...).

This guy is a complete buffoon and he doesn’t seem to care who sees it and knows it. He doesn’t even seem to understand what he says when he says it.

“Treason, or high crimes and misdemeanors” cover a lot of territory...

Evidently he did not want to be out in a position where he had to answer questions under oath or take the 5th amendment.

He is a liar and a despicable person. He needs to be impeached and put in prison.

If Koskinen were any more arrogant we would have to lock him up in a tanning box and call him Barrrraaaccckkk.

I would almost accept a bargain from him, his sworn testimony against his corrupt Democrat masters for prosecutorial immunity.

Oh, and then the witness protection program - for obvious reasons.

He and lerner need to be in jail where they will lose their arrogant attitudes.

All things considered, does a Federal employee claiming incompetence relieve that person from being responsible when they commit a criminal act under their color of authority? It worked well for the Clintons (Sandy Berger et al) and now its working for the obozo and his administration. Who will fix this DC criminal crap?
