Congressman Raúl Labrador is holding the IRS Commissioner accountable by pushing for an impeachment vote. McClatchy recently reported on the process, saying:
At a meeting of the House Judiciary Committee in May, Labrador said the Koskinen case had an “eerie similarity to Watergate,” with the IRS persecuting political enemies.
Labrador told his colleagues that the Watergate scandal, which forced President Richard Nixon to resign in 1974, “has come to encompass an array of clandestine and often illegal activities undertaken by the Nixon administration” and then concealed from the public during a cover-up.
“As I review the evidence and reports, the similarities between this and Watergate are staggering,” Labrador told the Judiciary Committee.
