“The CIA unconstitutionally spied on Congress by hacking into Senate Intelligence Committee computers. This grave misconduct not only is illegal, but it violates the U.S. Constitution’s requirement of separation of powers. These offenses, along with other errors in judgment by some at the CIA, demonstrate a tremendous failure of leadership, and there must be consequences,” said Udall in a statement. As was proved , agency employees hacked in 2009 Senate computers being used to compile a report on the agency’s detention and interrogation program. This is now a hot topic in the U.S. Senate and opinions are different. A colleague of Mark Udall, Sen. Ron Wyden, as an example, asked to maintain confidence in the intelligence community, limiting the subject to a full understanding of the situation that occurred. “What’s needed now is a public apology from Director Brennan to staff and the committee, a full accounting of how this occurred and a commitment there will be no further attempts to undermine Congressional oversight of CIA activities,” he said. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid concluded that “the CIA’s leadership must take action to address these misdeeds, restore its trust with Congress and ensure that this episode will never, ever be repeated.”
