IRS chief faces possible impeachment for destroying Lerner emails despite subpoena

I’m going to love it when the IRS under President Chris Christie and Senate Majority Leader Ted Cruz starts targeting their political opponents.  The gross incompetence (at best) or flat our lying (at worst) that these people are getting away with should be marveled at and studied.

Despite having a subpoena and preservation order in place for disgraced former IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails, backup tapes that potentially stored her communications were wiped clean — just like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s server.

House Republicans are now considering impeaching IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, as well as any other officials connected to the destruction of emails and the targeting of conservative organizations.

Lawmakers learned of the evidence’s destruction Thursday from Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George and Deputy Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration Office of Investigations Tim Camus at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.

Per Rep. Jim Jordan: “Every time Mr. Koskinen comes and testifies, we subsequently learn that something he said wasn’t quite accurate.” Impeachment is fine, but how about jail time?
