He has ordered the Justice Department to open an investigation into whether any laws were broken when the Internal Revenue Service singled out some conservative groups for extra scrutiny, Attorney Gen. Eric Holder told reporters Tuesday.

Echoing comments made Monday by President Obama, Holder also said that even if no laws were broken it was “outrageous” for the IRS to focus on groups who identified themselves as “patriots” or “tea party” supporters when they applied for tax-exempt status.
