Right now, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Senate Intelligence Committee's Chairman, is speaking out, on the Senate floor, about a well-publicized dispute between the CIA and the SSCI---regarding the latter's review of documents pertaining to the CIA's interrogation practices in the years following 9/11, and the CIA's auditing of Committee staffers' computer use during the review.

Both matters---the Committee's retrieval of certain documents from an offsite location, and the CIA's actions during the Committee's inquiry---are reportedly under review by the Department of Justice. For additional background, Mark Mazzetti's New York Times report can be found here.

Update [9:45 a.m.]: Senator Feinstein's remarks have concluded.  We'll post a copy of her speech today when and if we get one.
