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 levelvirtually treason, Issa told Breitbart News on Tuesday.
Spying on the executive branchspying on Congress or violating the separation of powers as to the Supreme Court or as to Congress is effectively treason. Treasonits written up in the Constitution, Issa said of Feinsteins revelations, adding, I dont 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 committees computers and taking documents relating to the CIAs interrogation methods on terror suspects who were held overseas after the 9/11 attacks.

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
Issa needs to go back to school.
Really? Obama and Holder want the evil torturers jailed or even killed for torturing the enemy. They would be for the Senate investigating every little thing about this.
Keep in mind that after purposely botching every ‘investigation,’ Issa is obviously a puppet of the Marxists paid to look tough while they loot the USA and break every law on the books.
They’re no longer fooling anybody, so he’s tossing around words like ‘Treason’ and acting shocked.
Don’t worry, Issa, I’m sure when the Collaborator trials arrive that the MSM will protect you while throwing Hussein, Pelosi, Reid under the bus /Sarc
Holder and Hussein know the jig is up so they’ve tasked CIA (Jihad John Brennan) to hack the only network they haven’t hacked yet.
The target is any dirt they can use to blackmail Feinstein and the other Senators as the Arpaio evidence breaks and they toss their Mocha Messiah under the bus.
When fienstien water boards Brennan let’s hope she asks him what he changed in March of 08 when he illegally accessed records of Barrack Hussein Obama’s passport records.
Thank you. F&F indeed rises to treason.
Say “treason” over and over so We The People get used to it and might actually dual haul these guys up on the charge of treason, just to start!
And.. I trust the CIA more anyway.
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.

Paging Mr Soros.
Please get your checkbook ready.
It’s ok when they just spy on conservative citizens, but now they’ve gone too far collecting blackmail material on Congress.
My thoughts exactly. They are all toothless tigers and won’t do a damn thing about it.
Elites don’t like it when THEY’RE spied on...
What are our idiots in government doing?
Not quite true; there's a way that you could construe the War on Drugs as Treason.
