Issa Rips CIA Over Feinstein Spying Allegations: 'Treason'

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa said he is incensed about allegations the CIA spied on the Senate Intelligence Committee, calling it “treason.”

“I think Senator Feinstein is as outraged as anyone and I share her outrage. I think the violation of the Constitutional separation of powers should be an offense of the highest level—virtually treason,” Issa told Breitbart News on Tuesday.

“Spying on the executive branch—spying on Congress or violating the separation of powers as to the Supreme Court or as to Congress is effectively treason. Treason—it’s written up in the Constitution,” Issa said of Feinstein’s revelations, adding, “I don’t know who gave the orders, but to spy on other branches is in fact a constitutional violation at the level of high crimes and misdemeanors and certainly should cause the removal of anyone involved.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Chairman of the Senate Select Intelligence Committee, Tuesday accused the spy agency of secretly examining her committee’s computers and taking documents relating to the CIA’s interrogation methods on terror suspects who were held overseas after the 9/11 attacks.

Remember the FIRST thing Hussein did as ‘president?’

He sent Pelosi to publicly accuse CIA of lying and breaking laws on waterboarding.

Then, O eventually installed Jihad John Brennan.

It’s ok when they just spy on conservative citizens, but now they’ve gone too far collecting blackmail material on Congress.

Technically, constitutional violations by the government can't be treason.

Not quite true; there's a way that you could construe the War on Drugs as Treason.
