House to vote this week on IRS impeachment

"John Koskinen needs to be held accountable," the Ohio Republican said at a forum hosted by Judicial Watch. "Later today on the House floor, we will make the motion to impeach Mr. Koskinen."

 Jordan's plan is to call up an impeachment resolution, which will require some form of action by the House within two days, setting up a vote before lawmakers leave for the rest of the year. If lawmakers challenged it — for example, by making a motion to table it — a vote would be held on that motion, and that vote would essentially become a proxy vote for impeachment.
