WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials say the CIA is investigating whether its officers monitored members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which oversees the intelligence agency.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein is telling reporters that the CIA inspector general is investigating how her committee investigated allegations of CIA abuse in a Bush-era detention and interrogation program.

Two officials familiar with the investigation says the senator confirmed the CIA is looking into allegations of wrongdoing, including whether its own officers improperly monitored Senate investigators and possibly accessed their computers. The allegations were first reported by The New York Times.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly.

The CIA declined to comment.
