IRS Commissioner John Koskinen – who has dealt with his fair share of controversy in the last 12 months – wryly acknowledged that he too, like Hillary Clinton, does not use his personal email account for work-related purposes.
The topic came up after the media firestorm that saw Hillary Clinton comb through her server and delete thousands of emails she and her team deemed “personal” during her time as Secretary of State, and then wiped the server clean.
Clinton is currently staring down a barrel due to her role in emailgate and will soon appear before Trey Gowdy and the House Select Committee on Benghazi to testify about those emails.

Koskinen, who appears to be following in her footsteps, ought to tread lightly as he has already been interrogated by Gowdy–after the IRS was found to be targeting Republicans and conservatives. The commissioner vowed that he has never – aside from a few testimony drafts – conducted business on his personal email account.
“I certainly never discussed IRS business on my own personal account,” Koskinen said. “And I am confident that we continue to enforce and remind people about that policy across the agency.”
That agency, he adds, consists of 87,000 employees; and while he can’t guarantee every one of them is following protocol, he assured that he was going to keep “a close watch.”
