White House spokesman Jay Carney says the IRS inspector general notified the White House counsel's office during the week of April 22 that it was completing a review of the IRS office in Cincinnati that targeted conservative political groups for special examination. Carney says the counsel's office was not given details about the review.

Carney said President Barack Obama was not told about the review, and he reiterated Obama's assertion Monday that he did not learn such groups had been targeted until news reports broke Friday.

Obama called such behavior "outrageous" and said anyone involved needs to be "held fully accountable."

The IRS has apologized for what it calls "inappropriate" targeting of conservative political groups during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status.
