Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen “did a terrible job” during a Monday evening hearing before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

McCaskill was asked on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to assess how it looks that the IRS lost Lois Lerner’s emails just 10 days after they were requested by Congress.

WATCH:

“It looks terrible. And it allows — there have been a lot of hearings on this and honestly, it gives some much steam behind this as an issue. And I get it. And it’s awful. And this guy did a terrible job, being arrogant, yesterday. We all think of the IRS as arrogant anyway and he kind of confirmed that.”

The “guy” she’s referring to is Koskinen, who squared off in a very testy hearing Monday night with Rep. Darrell Issa and other Republicans on the House Oversight Committee.
