The head of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee accused the CIA Tuesday of criminal activity in improperly searching a computer network set up for lawmakers investigating allegations that the agency used torture in terror investigations during the Bush administration.While the monitoring outlined by Feinstein appears far more limited than in the NSA scandal, the backlash could be significant could because it involved the panel that oversees the CIA's programs and funding.Feinstein said she has sought an apology but said the CIA has been silent.CIA Director John Brennan, asked about Feinstein's accusations, said the agency was not trying to stop the committee's report and that it had not hacked into Senate computers. At issue now is whether the CIA violated an agreement made with the Senate Intelligence Committee about monitoring the panel's use of CIA computers.Feinstein said she has asked the agency for an apology but the CIA has been silent.
