Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert told PJ Media that Congress should begin “dismantling the IRS” in response to the agency targeting conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status with additional requirements.
Gohmert, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, also said a “special counsel” is needed to investigate the situation.
“We need a special counsel to get to the bottom of it but I also think we need to be dismantling the IRS,” Gohmert told PJ Media on Capitol Hill.
“My two things – special counsel and dismantle the IRS.”
When asked for his plan to “dismantle” the IRS, Gohmert said, “just start the process, for sure.”
Former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman, Deputy Treasury Secretary Neal Wolin, and Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday.
