Washington, Ta. 1 1
Two Democratic lawmakers on the US House Intelligence Committee have claimed that the country’s intelligence agency, the CIA, has a collection of secret and unpublished data, including information on US citizens.
Both members of the Senate have accused the CIA of hiding its long-running secret program from the public and parliament.
Oregon State Senator Ron Weiden and New Mexico Senator Martin Heinrich have written to top intelligence officials asking for more information about the program.
This letter was written in April, 2021. Most of which were released yesterday but the documents released by the CIA were removed.
Weiden and Heinrich said that parliament and the people believe the program is being run beyond the legal framework.
The CIA and the National Security Agency have a foreign mission and are generally barred from doing business in the United States.
