Feinstein accused the CIA of spying on Senate Intelligence committee computers while staffers were investigating the agency's interrogation practices under the Bush administration. In a floor speech Tuesday, Feinstein said she had "grave concerns that the CIA's search may well have violated the separation of powers principles embodied in the U.S. Constitution."

CIA Director John Brennan on Tuesday said that Feinstein's claims were "beyond the scope of reason."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) backed Feinstein in her allegations.

"And I'm disappointed that the CIA is apparently unrepentant on what I understand they did," Reid told reporters Tuesday.
