While they are under the jurisdiction of the White House for appointments and performance, they do NOT report to him on individual investigations, particularly investigations into him. tRUMP is the only POTUS who doesn't seem to understand that.

            How absolutely certain are you that nobody in the WHITE HOUSE knows? IMO you are assuming that the ability to deny the PUBLIC knowledge equates to the SAME level of ability to deny knowledge to other ... more
