critics calling foul and claiming the information was kept secret during the president's reelection bid. but many veterans of government scandal say it is customary to avoid telling ress of independent investigation until all the facts come out. here are the facts. we now know senior management at the irs knew employees in cincinnati targeted tea party and conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status. the fbi now looking into any criminal behavior. white house top adviser david fiorenza on the sunday -- firefighter on the sunday morning talk shows. >> congressman issa was informed and he didn't say pig. he talked about why. because when you are dealing with a nonpartisan epty like the irs, you want to have an actual independent investigation before you make allegations.
the same reason the administration talked about it. the same reason no one in the treasury department talked about it. >> we have for reason to believe at this point it was anybody outside the irs directioning them to do this. obviously there have been claims the white house may have been involved. i don't have any reason to believe that. >> reporter: that last sound bite from republican congressman aaron shock. another shock. we are hearing a very outspoken congressman, of course congressman darrell issa, a republican from california, he is the chairman of the house oversight and government reform committee. you heard if that sound bite from the top adviser, saying he knew about this investigation a year ago but he didn't say anything and he tolls us quote he thought it was inappropriate to accuse the irs until you have had a nonpartisan deep look. back to you. two fbi agents sadly were
