EPIC v. CIA: EPIC Seeks Details of CIA Surveillance of Congress

EPIC has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Central Intelligence Agency for the Inspector General's report on the CIA's spying on a key Congressional oversight committee. The EPIC lawsuit follows from reports that that the CIA infiltrated a a computer network used by Senate staff to investigate the agency's detention and interrogation program. Senator Dianne Feinstein, Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, stated that the CIA's conduct raised far-reaching concerns about Constitutional separation of powers, and violations of computer crime and wiretapping laws. The CIA subsequently confirmed that the CIA's Inspector General had conducted an investigation and concluded the agency had "improperly" accessed Senate computers. EPIC sent a FOIA request to the CIA for the Inspector General's report but received no response. EPIC has sued for public release of the report. For more information, see: EPIC: EPIC v. CIA - CIA Spying on Congress.
