Gowdy Takes on IRS

How can you say there was no crime?

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) hit IRS Commissioner John Koskinen with a question the bureaucrat couldn’t answer Monday: “You have already said multiple times today that there was no evidence that you found of any criminal wrongdoing,” Gowdy said. “I want you to tell me what criminal statutes you have evaluated.” Befuddled, Koskinen replied, “I have not looked at any.” Gowdy fired back, “Well then how can you possibly tell our fellow citizens that there’s not criminal wrongdoing if you don’t even know what statutes to look at?” Gowdy repeated the question, and Koskinen again admitted, “I reviewed no criminal statutes.” The only hope for the IRS is smoke and mirrors. We’re glad at least Gowdy isn’t going to take it.
