• Major Democratic Donor And IRS Commissioner John Koskinen: “I’ve Never Been A Partisan Political Operative”

    Lies, lies, and more IRS lies.

    In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Thursday, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, who donated over $7,000 to President Barack Obama, denied that he was “a partisan or political operative.”

    For once, this tool is right.

    No. Koskinen is not a partisan or political operative. It’s worse than that. He’s a big time, maga-donor to the Democratic party. Through the years, Koskinen has given nearly $100,000 to Democratic candidates and groups, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

    Koskinen has been contributing to Democrats for four decades, starting with a $1000 contribution to Democratic candidate for Colorado Senate candidate Gary Hart in 1979.

    Koskinen has been a reliable donor over the years, contributing a total of $19,000 to the Democratic National Committee from 1988 to 2008. He has made a contribution to the Democratic candidate for president in each election since 1980, including $2,300 to Obama in 2008, and $5000 to Obama in 2012.

    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has received $3,000 from Koskinen since 2008, and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee received $2,000 from 2004 to 2006.

    Hillary Clinton has received $3,800 for her various political campaigns from Koskinen.

    Koskinen’s most recent contribution was $2,500 to Sen. Mark Warner (D., Va.) in February of 2013.

    And there you have it. Koskinen also claims that he didn’t want to “play games with the Congress,” and that he had been giving money to his “friends” for decades.

    It’s just awfully convenient that all of Koskinen’s “friends” just happen to be Democrats running for office.
