Republicans Now Attacking IRS Commish For Being A Democrat
IRS head John Koskinen is now being questioned about his political leanings.
Over the past 30 years, Koskinen has given more than $100,000 to Democratic causes, according to FEC filings. But the government veteran downplayed his political activity, telling CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Thursday, “I’ve never been a partisan operative, a political operative.”
“I was actually asked by the Bush administration to come in and work on Freddie Mac,” he said in an interview that aired on “The Situation Room.”…
Asked by Blitzer whether a criminal investigation was warranted, Koskinen replied: “I don’t think … at this time there’s any evidence of that.”
