Rep Thomas Massie to IRS Commish: “You don’t have to explain probability to me. I took the class at MIT”

Republican Congressman Thomas Massie got into a bit of a back-and-forth with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen tonight during the hearing over Lois Lerner’s hard drive crashing, and Massie had a snappy one-liner ready when Koskinen challenged him on a matter of probability.

Massie brought up the statistic that there’s a 3-5 percent chance that a hard drive would fail on a regular basis, but factoring in the 10 days it took between an inquiry for Lerner’s emails and for it to turn out that her hard drive crashed, Massie said that’s a probability of 1 in 1000.

Koskinen said, “That’s actually not how probability works.”

Massie shot back, “You don’t have to explain probability to me. I took the class at MIT.”
