DOJ Asked To Probe Claims Of Spying On Senate Staffers
(Washington, DC) -- A report that Senate staffers may have been spied on by the CIA is prompting action by the Justice Department. The CIA Inspector General's Office reportedly asked for a review of claims by the "New York Times" and "McClatchy" that the agency had targeted staffers preparing a report on the detention and interrogation of terror suspects. The American Civil Liberties Union says the allegations could mark a potentially serious violation of separation of powers. CIA Director John Brennan says the claims are "unsupported by the facts."
