According to a Reuters source, the White House tried to mediate between the Central Intelligence Agency and the Senate panel that oversees it. Their attempt to do so came after both sides alleged they were spied on by the other over a Bush-era interrogation program. The involvement of the White House's most senior lawyer indicates President Barack Obama's interest in ending the increasingly bitter dispute between the CIA and the Senate Intelligence Committee. The source told Reuters White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler has attempted to "de-escalate" the tension. The fight burst into the open on Monday when the committee chair Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein said the CIA had possibly broken the law by spying on Congress.
