Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg are planning to stay quiet on Cambridge Analytica until after Facebook's internal review of the scandal that has rocked the social media giant, according to a report from Bloomberg.

Tech insiders, lawmakers and even Facebook employees have called for input from Facebook's highest executives. But it appears unlikely the CEO and COO will address concerns in the near term.

Tuesday morning, Facebook's audit had already hit a roadblock as U.K. investigators launched their own investigation and instructed Facebook to back down. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission is also reportedly investigating whether the use of data by 50 million Facebook users violated a consent decree the company signed in 2011.
