Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, accused the CIA of illegally interfering in her panel's investigation of the agency's use of waterboarding and other forms of torture at overseas prisons. In a fiery speech on the Senate floor, Feinstein -- ordinarily a staunch supporter of the intelligence services -- said that the CIA had broken the law and violated constitutional principles by searching committee computers and seeking an FBI probe into investigators' conduct. Feinstein added that her panel would seek to have its report declassified so that the public could learn "the horrible details of the CIA program that never, never, never should have existed."
