Feinstein Accuses CIA of Spying on Congressional Staffers and Violating Constitution

Tuesday on the Senate floor, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, accused the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of spying on Senate staffers investigating them by monitoring the computers they were using and improperly removing documents needed for a report on the agency’s detention program

FEINSTEIN: Based on what Director Brennan has informed us, I have grave concerns that the CIA’s search may well have violated the separation of powers principles embodied in the United States Constitution, including the speech and debate clause, It may have undermined the constitutional framework essential to effective congressional oversight of intelligence activities or any other government function.
