Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen is in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over e-mails in a timely manner, emails requested by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee; comments, Bob McNeil, Texas tax expert and American Citizen Party 2016 Presidential candidate.

Congress is asking for information regarding the IRS handling of applications for tax-exempt status by groups deemed as enemies of the Obama Administration, groups who applied with words like “tea party” or “elections” in their applications. Previously, former Exempt Organizations Director Lois Lerner pled the fifth twice before the congressional committee. Lerner, who is on leave with full pay and benefits, has since refused to testify on two occasions. Confronted with a hostile witness, Congress is asking for Lerner’s emails.

Koskinen, who spent $15 million of taxpayer’s money and who took 10 months to turn over documents to Congress, claimed that it would take years, not months, for the IRS to turn over Lerner’s emails.

This could be done in about an hour with a working laptop, notes McNeil. The IRS is dragging its feet, perhaps waiting until after the next election cycle to release the undoubtedly explosive information. How else to explain the foot-dragging, the non-appearances and the pleading of the fifth?

If our elected Congress is unable to obtain information from government agencies that are supposed to be under their auspices, if our Representatives, who were elected to serve as agents of the American citizen, whom cannot control a government agency- then it is operating outside the law. The only recourse for Congress, in the face of such defiance of its constitutional authority, is to launch a criminal investigation, says McNeil.
