Rand Paul Expresses Worry About CIA Search Of Senate Computers
Berkeley, California (CNN) Senator Rand Paul is raising red flags about claims the CIA is illegally spying on members of Congress.
The Kentucky Senator spoke to a sold-out audience at the University of California at Berkeley Wednesday.
“If Congress is spied upon without permission, who exactly is in charge of your government? Last week, we learned something new - your Senator's in the middle of this; we learned that the CIA is illegally searching the computers of the Senate Intelligence Committee. They're the ones who are supposed to be overseeing the CIA. I don't know about you, but that worries me,” he said.
CIA Director John Brennan has flatly denied any wrongdoing by his agency.
Senator Paul has also been critical of the White House over the NSA’s phone surveillance program.
He sued the Obama administration last month in an effort to end the metadata collection program.
