IRS Has Lost Trust
Issa vs. Koskinen.
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) slammed IRS Commissioner John Koskinen for failing to earn trust. “We have a problem with you,” Issa said, “and you have a problem maintaining credibility.” Issa continued, saying while the IRS has provided an “impressive number” of documents, they have deliberately excluded the ones that would “embarrass” the agency. “You promised to produce the documents; you did not,” Issa added. “You promised to be candid and forthcoming; you were not.” Furthermore, Issa continued, “You believe you earned trust before you came here and it was yours to lose. I believe you needed to earn our trust and you failed at this task.” But the primary point was Issa’s last: “[T]he American people do not believe the IRS is dealing fairly with them in this investigation.”
