Reid Backs Feinstein Amid Her Charges Of CIA Spying On Congress


He declined to say when asked, if they allegations proved to be true, whether CIA Director John Brennan should resign: "That's not my decision."

Reid also wouldn't weigh in on whether a criminal investigation was appropriate.

"Right now, there are a lot of things going on," he said. "I think we should all just pause for a little bit, not very long, and find out where all this stuff leads."

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) declined to comment.

"My understanding is there's an investigation underway, and I'm not going to comment on an ongoing investigation," he said. "We're watching it very carefully."
