Gowdy lights up IRS Commissioner: ‘Words have consequences…’

trey gowdyAfter spending years colluding with the IRS in their targeted attack of the Tea Party and month blocking and obfuscating the congressional investigation, Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings called for an end to what he referred to as the “public harassment” of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. Cummings objected to Koskinen being made to appear once again before the House Oversight committee to answer questions regarding Lois Lerner’s hard drive. The IRS claimed that it crashed and was destroyed. However,  Lerner’s hard drive was merely ‘scratched’ and the data was recoverable.
