If the details about the IRS strategy of targeting tea party groups and the skullduggery in the Obama administration's handling of the Benghazi attack had emerged last fall, President Barack Obama might have lost the election, says real estate billionaire Donald Trump.

"This is a big, big story that is probably going to get a lot bigger," Trump said, referring to the IRS saga on Fox News. "This is a very terrible thing.



"It’s just not supposed to happen. They have laws against it. If this were somebody else, this would be the bigger story."

Trump has been paying close attention, he said. "I’ve been watching it for the last four days getting bigger and bigger and even some of our liberal friends are sort of saying this is really bad. Between this and Benghazi, had this come out like this before the election, you could have had a different result."

Trump said he did not believe it was all from low-level IRS employees. "It doesn't happen that way," he said.

"There is no way this is low level, this is high-level," he added.
