GOING OVER RYAN'S HEAD? House conservatives may attempt to impeach IRS commissioner

I’ll believe it when I see it. 
It isn’t like that smug SOB of a commissioner doesn’t deserve to get run out of town on a rail. 

Fox News reports members of the House Freedom Caucus may go over the head of House Republican leaders, and put a special resolution on the floor to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, congressional sources told Fox News Tuesday.

Many conservatives have begged for the House Judiciary Committee to try to impeach Koskinen, but Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and members of the House GOP leadership have been not been receptive to the idea.

Congressional Republicans have sought to impeach Koskinen over grounds he intentionally ignored and “lied” to Congress about the agency’s 2010 targeting scandal.

The House Freedom Caucus is said to be preparing a “privileged” resolution to impeach Koskinen, congressional sources told Fox News. Privileged resolutions essentially go to the front of the legislative line, and leadership can't do anything about them. The House must consider a privileged resolution immediately or within two legislative days, by rule.
