“It would create disincentives for many good people to serve,” he said, according to prepared testimony. “And it would slow the pace of reform and progress at the IRS.”
Koskinen, who took office several months after the political-targeting scandal broke, said that he “directed IRS staff to cooperate fully with Congress and to recover lost information where possible, and I testified to the best of my knowledge.”
But he also acknowledged that some of his testimony later proved to be wrong and some information that Congress requested was not preserved.
“I regret both of those failings,” he said. “I can also tell you that, with the benefit of hindsight, even closer communication with Congress would have been advisable. But my commitment is, and always has been, to tell you the truth and to address issues head on.”
