A senior administration official told TPM Monday that Senate Intelligence Chair Dianne Feinstein’s statement that the United States would no longer collect intelligence on U.S. allies was not accurate.

Earlier in the day, Feinstein said: “The White House has informed me that collection on our allies will not continue, which I support.”

The official said that statement is not accurate.

The official said that the administration had made some specific policy changes, which could not be detailed, but not overall changes, such as across-the-board termination of intelligence collection that might be aimed at U.S. allies.
