May 19: Dan Pfeiffer holds a royal flush of Sunday talk shows — making the rounds on ABC’s “This Week,” NBC’s “Meet the Press,” CBS’ “Face the Nation,” CNN’s “State of the Union” and “Fox News Sunday” –  to repeat that President Obama only learned that the IRS had targeted conservative groups ”when it came out in the news.”

May 10-11: During an American Bar Association Q&A, Lois Lerner, director of the IRS’s Exempt Organizations Division, airs the  IRS’ dirty laundry and the inspector general’s report is leaked to the press.

Week of April 22, 2013: The New York Times and Wall Street Journal, citing a senior White House official, report today that the counsel to the president, Kathryn Ruemmler, was informed of the IRS audit of conservative groups.

March 2013: Treasury secretary is told IG’s report is on the way.

October 2012: The IRS discloses on its website that the investigation is on its agenda. Jonathan Weisman in his Times report notes that the IG report wasn’t exactly a secret.
