Harry Reid: CIA Director Should Apologize For Alleged Spying On Senate

What about the CIA and NSA spying on the American people, Harry? Does that warrant an investigation? Not in his world:

Sen. Harry Reid said CIA Director John Brennan should apologize to Sen. Dianne Feinstein after she accused the intelligence agency of spying on the computers used by the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Feinstein, a California Democrat who chairs the intelligence panel, took to the Senate floor Tuesday to accuse the CIA of tapping into an independent computer network used by her committee to look into President George W. Bush-era CIA interrogation abuses.

Feinstein called for an apology on the Senate floor.

“I support Dianne Feinstein, and the answer is ‘yes,’” Reid said when asked if he agreed with her call for an apology.

Reid said he did not agree with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who said a special investigation should be launched into the matter.

“We’re about 14 steps away from that,” Reid said.

Reid said the Senate should refrain from taking any action immediately, until a long-awaited report from the Senate panel about the torture allegations is released, which the majority leader said would happen soon.

“I think we should all just pause for a little bit, not very long, and find out where all this stuff leads,” Reid said.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., declined to weigh in.

“I’m not yet prepared to comment on this investigation,” McConnell said. “We’re watching it very carefully. “

Feinstein said the CIA will not answer her questions about the alleged spying, and will not apologize.

The Justice Department is now investigating the matter as a possible crime by CIA personnel.

Brennan on Tuesday denied that his agency had spied on senators.

So what if they say they’re sorry? I mean, really?

“Um, sorry, Senate folk, for spying on you.”

And then the Senate will be all like:

ITS-all-good

I don’t think so.

If the CIA is spying on the Senate, then that warrants an investigation, not an apology.
