On Tuesday GOP-led Ways and Means Committee investigators, in their quest to recover missing Lerner emails, learned that her hard drive was damaged but recoverable by talking to IRS information-technology experts, after the IRS Commissioner testified that the hard drive had been shredded and recycled. 

Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, became irate that this was going to lead to the IRS Commissioner being called back in front of them to testify today.  "This public harassment of an agency head is not only an abuse of authority, but a dereliction of the committee's obligation to conduct responsible oversight on a host of other critical issues within our jurisdiction." Well here was some of the harassment, aka reasonable questioning, by SC Rep Trey Gowdy.
