White House not taking sides on CIA hack claims

WASHINGTON – The White House says President Barack Obama agrees with CIA Director John Brennan that it’s important to get to the bottom of whether the spy agency committed violated any laws with respect to a Senate panel’s investigation.

White House spokesman Jay Carney isn’t taking sides between the CIA and Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein. The California Democrat alleges the CIA improperly accessed Senate computers.

Carney says he can’t comment because there’s an ongoing review by an inspector general and that the matter has also been referred to the Justice Department.

Carney also says there have been periodic disputes about the Senate panel’s allegations that the CIA used torture during the Bush administration. He says Obama supports that investigation and wants its eventual findings declassified.
