WASHINGTON (AP) — A sympathetic House Judiciary Committee is giving a high-profile forum to a top Republican lawmaker who wants to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

 

House Panel

 

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz plans to testify to the GOP-run Judiciary panel on Tuesday. The Utah Republican has been pushing for Koskinen's removal since last summer, accusing the commissioner of hindering congressional investigations of his agency.

Congressional Republicans have long detested the IRS. Those feelings were only heightened when the agency apologized in 2013 for subjecting conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status to unusually tough scrutiny.

The IRS says it has fully cooperated with four congressional committees investigating the agency.

Koskinen says the impeachment charges against him are without merit. He says he won't appear Tuesday because he's been busy traveling.
