Why won't Trump fire IRS Commissioner Koskinen?

TaxProf quoting Washington ExaminerPolitical cartography in Washington can be difficult. After three months in office, it's clear President Trump doesn't believe the D.C. bog includes the federal building at the corner of 12th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. He won't drain the swamp at the Internal Revenue Service.

I'm not sure why, but I'm pretty sure that it was Wilkins who was actually behind both the scandal and the coverup. The most positive spin I can give Trump on this one is that maybe he's waiting to see what's in the 7000 documents Judicial Watch recently uncovered, so he can fire Koskinen then. If he fires Koskinen now, with Wilkins already gone, he might be left with no one to fire when the coverup finally unravels.
