It looks like we can now add IRS Chief John Koskinen to the list of enemies Trump will go after if (dog willing) elected President. Always looking far and wide for the most patently stupid excuses to avoid any type of accountability, Trump actually alleged that he’s been constantly audited during Obama’s presidency simply because he’s a good Christian. Allow me to reiterate that in the event that blood just came gushing from your eyes. The thrice-married guy who insults every nationality and gender- and even imaginary ones-is suddenly a choirboy.
That was his pathetic attempt at a comeback to Republican presidential candidates Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) during Thursday’s debate in which they called out Trump for not releasing his tax forms to the public. But IRS Chief Koskinen has the real reasons, which he gladly explained in an interview with C-Span.
The taxpayer controls his returns. There’s nothing in an IRS audit process generally that would keep you from sharing that information generally, any way you wanted to.” Koskinen further stated, “It would be rare for someone to be audited every year, and that someone would not undergo another audit for a few years, two or three at least, after IRS audit the previous year.
Trump, realizing that he only has fear and fear itself to run on, is shamelessly tapping into both the anti-gumint and Jesus freak crowd. He figures that they hugely distrust the IRS or the current administration, so it makes perfectly good sense from his perspective. But Kosiken is on to Trump’s game.
“We don’t care who you are,” stated Koskinen, “Whether you go to church, or don’t go to church.” Koskinen explained audits occur when something pops up in your tax returns they find suspicious. It’s basically all about the numbers. Party or religious affiliation is not part of any IRS audit red flag, according to Koskinen.

It’s clear that Mr. Bankruptcy just hates that he really isn’t good at business and, doing what he does best, he attacks anyone for calling him out on anything.
