Taking Prisoners: Trey Gowdy Threatens to Hold IRS Commissioner in Contempt of Court if He Does Not Produce Lerner E-mails

After a contentious Wednesday hearing with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, South Carolina Republican congressman Trey Gowdy threatened to hold the top tax official in contempt of Congress unless he produces disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails by the end of this week.

Gowdy spoke with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren about Wednesday’s hearing, where a slew of GOP congressmen tore into Koskinen’s claim that responding to the Oversight committee’s subpoena for Lerner’s emails could take years.

“All we want are the emails to or from Lois Lerner — I’m not talking about private taxpayer information. That’s 6103, that’s confidential, that’s a separate conversation,” he said.
