Here is footage from a hearing today, in which FBI Director Robert Mueller seemed to lack basic information about the FBI's investigation into IRS abuses -- including even the  ame of the lead investigator and why the FBI was contacting people like True the Vote's Catherine Engelbrecht at the same time they were being targeted by the IRS.

As a general matter, I'm not a big fan of the haranguing style of questioning; it tends to make the questioner seem like a bully and a showboating style distracts from the substance of the questions and the (lack of) answers.  But given the magnitude and extent of the IRS abuses -- and the possible involvement of some in the FBI in some aspects of the harassment -- it does seem that Director Mueller should have more answers.
