CIA apologizes for spying on US Senate

The Central Intelligence Agency logo is displayed in the lobby of CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia, on August 14, 2008Lawmakers slammed the CIA on Thursday after the US intelligence agency admitted its officers had “improperly” spied upon Senate investigators probing allegations of torture. The CIA Director John Brennan has apologized to the head of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI), Senator Dianne Feinstein, and admitted her staff’s computers had been accessed. Previously, Brennan had dismissed the allegations, insisting that “nothing could be further from the truth.” A new review will now be launched and CIA officers could face disciplinary action. “The investigation confirmed what I said on the Senate floor in March,” Feinstein said, calling the CIA internal probe and Brennan’s apology to her committee “positive first steps.”
