CIA admits it hacked Senate computers

Remember when CIA Director John Brennan said that the CIA hacking into Senate computers was "beyond the scope of reason"?

"We are not in any way trying to thwart the [Senate Intelligence Committee] report's progress [or] release," Brennan told NBC's Andrea Mitchell at a Council on Foreign Relations event. "As far as the allegations of the CIA hacking into computers, nothing could be further from the truth."

Yeah. CIA improperly accessed Senate computers, agency finds:

Findings of the investigation by the CIA Inspector General’s Office “include a judgment that some CIA employees acted in a manner inconsistent with the common understanding reached between SSCI (Senate Select Committee on Intelligence) and the CIA in 2009,” CIA spokesman Dean Boyd said in a statement.
