Lawsuit seeks CIA records for Pelosi briefings
WASHINGTON — The conservative group Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit to get access to the CIA’s records of congressional briefings on terrorism interrogation techniques.
Judicial Watch says it’s trying to discover the truth about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s allegation that the CIA lied about briefing Congress on the program. The group’s president, Tom Fitton, accused the Obama administration of withholding the documents to protect Pelosi from embarrassment.
The suit, filed Wednesday, asks for records of dates that CIA officials met with Pelosi and her staff about the interrogation program and copies of materials given her office. It also asks for a list of all lawmakers and aides briefed on the program.
