    Conduct of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen

    The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee met to consider and mark up legislation to censure Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen for his conduct during the investigation into the IRS' alleged targeting of conservative groups seeking tax exempt status. Committee Chair Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) said the resolution was necessary because Commissioner Koskinen did not fully comply with a congressional subpoena or testify truthfully before Congress.
