President Trump just announced he is naming a new head of the Internal Revenue Service as John Koskinen's scandal-laden 5-year tenure comes to an end.
Despite numerous attempts to oust Koskinen by conservatives in Congress, the Washington political class protected one of their own, keeping him in power. It’s a failure of government that he will be able to serve his full tenure after consistently abusing the public trust, lying to Congress, and obstructing investigations into the IRS's corruption and political targeting of conservatives.
As he heads out the door, we need to make sure John Koskinen knows he will not be missed! Sign his retirement card to tell him – and the political class in Washington – good riddance!
