But he wants you to trust his view of “wrongdoing” at the IRS. Trey Gowdy is not so easily fooled.
The Daley Gator just wrote extensively on how shocking the Koskinen appointment was in light of the controversies already underway at the time. They also point out the extent of Koskinen’s donations to Democrats over the years, which total over $100,000. Considerable cash donations went directly to the Obama campaign during the last few elections. This places John Koskinen squarely in the category of “blatant party hack,” which ordinarily would disqualify an appointee from this kind of oversight position with the IRS. Not so, unfortunately, in this case. But the fact that John Koskinen is playing the “trust me” card before Congressional Republicans is an insult to all Americans who think the IRS should be above political warfare.
