What's the Status of the IRS Commissioner Impeachment Debate?

A tense House Judiciary Committee hearing was held Wednesday on the impeachment of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, and it seems unlikely there will be a resolution this month. Koskinen fielded questions about a scandal -- that the agency applied extra scrutiny to conservative groups that applied for tax-exempt status -- that has badgered the IRS since before he became commissioner.

"Think about that, Donald Trump, who wants to be president, is asking one of our adversaries to engage in hacking or intelligence efforts against the United States of America to affect an election," Panetta told the Democratic National Convention.
