Feinstein says CIA spied on Senate computers

by Rachel Baker on March 12, 2014

Who knows what to believe at this point, but here’s the newest story about CIA spying – this time its supposedly on Congress.

Here are my questions: Its almost mid-March, Sen. Feinstein was told in January the CIA had searched their computers last year. Why are we just now hearing about it? Why did Sen. Feinstein wait two months to let this out to the media? What happened to precipitate this coming out now?

And for the love of all things holy, why does anyone give a damn about what Sens. McCain and Graham have to say about this? Why does the media flock to them for comment on everything?! And why does the public let the media get away with it? They are nothing but media hounds that have something negative to say about everything, and rarely is there any substance to what is being said by either of them.

The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee accused the CIA of secretly removing classified documents from her staff’s computers in the middle of an oversight investigation, while another lawmaker said Congress should “declare war” on the spy agency if it’s true.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein said CIA Director John Brennan told her in January that agency personnel searched the computers last year because they believed the panel’s investigators might have gained access to materials on an internal review they were not authorized to see.

“The CIA did not ask the committee or its staff if the committee had access to the internal review or how we obtained it,” Feinstein said in blistering remarks on the Senate floor. “Instead, the CIA just went and searched the committee’s computer.”
