White House says its lawyer learned of IRS review three weeks ago, but didn’t tell Obama
The thot plickens, as we see HERE:
The White House counsel’s office was informed in April of an inspector general’s review of the Internal Revenue Service, press secretary Jay Carney [above] said Monday.
Carney told reporters that the counsel’s office was told of the examination into the targeting of conservative groups during the week of April 22, but not given details about the review’s findings. President Obama, Carney said, was not told about the review and learned of it only after news reports emerged Friday, just what Obama said earlier Monday.
“We have never — we don’t have access to, nor should we, the IG’s report or any draft versions of it,” Carney said.
