(THEHILL) — Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) on Tuesday moved to force a floor vote on a resolution to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, but the House rejected the push, voting to refer it to committee.
Jordan, the outgoing House Freedom Caucus chairman, gave notice on a privileged resolution to impeach Koskinen.
