Things got heated on Wednesday when badass Tea Party Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) took the microphone in a congressional hearing regarding the lies and deception from Obama IRS commissioner, John Koskinen, who has worked diligently to cover-up the tyrannical and unconstitutional targeting of the pro-Constitution, pro-liberty Tea Party movement.
Congressman Gohmert, a former three-term district judge who was appointed by Rick Perry to complete a term as Chief Justice of the 12th Court of Appeals, said that the IRS is the only governmental entity that routinely abuses the U.S. Constitution with regularity, obliterating individual rights by confiscating citizens’ private property with no due process.
“The Internal Revenue Service is the only of which I’m aware in the federal government that can ignore the Constitution as part of its job — nobody else gets to ignore the Constitution.
But they can take people’s money without due process. They can take their property. They can move in and destroy a business that took a lifetime to build and they have done that.”
Gohmert said that because of the tyrannical agencies ability to abuse power, it is “particularly important” that the agents who work at the IRS be “completely overwhelmed with integrity.”
And while Gohmert said that he has met and talked to “fine and honest” people at the IRS, he has been told by those same agents that they are “shocked at the corruption” and the “dishonesty that has overwhelmed the top of the Internal Revenue Service.”
Gohmert contended that the top of the IRS — at management levels — is where the “rot is occurring” and “stink is getting overwhelming.”
Obama IRS commissioner John Koskinen is facing the possibility of impeachment for testimony regarding the IRS targeting scandal. Gohmert contends that one federal judge, who he knows, would have thrown him [Koskinen] in jail even before the testimony ended.
Gohmert went on to say he’s waiting for the day that a Democrat will be honest enough and have enough “righteous indignation” to hold the IRS accountable.
With all due respect Louie, don’t hold your breath.
