The House on Wednesday passed a resolution calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special counsel for the Internal Revenue Service investigation.
The resolution, passed 250-168, came minutes after the House voted to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. Twenty-six Democrats voted in favor of it.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) said that appointing a special counsel was necessary to ensure a fair investigation of the agency’s scrutiny of conservative nonprofits applying for tax-exempt status.
“The administration cannot credibly investigate this matter,” Goodlatte said. “The American people deserve to know who ordered the targeting, when the targeting was ordered and why.”
