Ellen Nakashima reports:

The CIA searched computers intended to be used solely by the Senate Intelligence Committee in an apparent effort to determine how committee staff members gained access to a draft version of an internal agency review of its controversial interrogation program, U.S. officials said.

The action, some officials say, would mark the first time a U.S. intelligence agency has accessed congressional computers and would be an apparent violation of the constitutional principle of separation of powers.

Read more on Washington Post. McClattchy News and the New York Times broke the story.

So… if they did search the computers, will they be charged with violations of the CFAA? It will be interesting to see whether the allegations are founded and what happens if they are.
