"Washington Examiner, Why Is Trump Afraid of Draining the Swamp at the IRS and Firing John Koskinen?:
"...Famous for firing people, Trump has disrupted the status quo in the nation's capital with his personnel decisions.
He quickly terminated Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, then sacked 46 federal prosecutors.
But he won't ax IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.
Conservatives have been gunning for the tax chief's scalp for years.
To no avail, they've tried shaming, officially censuring, and impeaching Koskinen.
But now that Trump's in the White House, they're wondering why the president is sheltering the taxman. ...
The Trump White House keeps dodging the question.
On Friday, press secretary Sean Spicer referred curious reporters inquiring about Koskinen's fate to the Treasury Department, even after it came to light that the agency still has 7,000 unreleased documents related to the scandal. ...
Trump has every reason to dismiss the tax agent.
With Koskinen at the helm, the IRS was able to cover up its targeting scandal.
Brought in by President Obama to clean up the agency's image, he turned a blind eye as the IRS covered up its scandal and continued to violate citizen's First Amendment rights."
