Reuters , Tuesday 11 Mar 2014

President Barack Obama has "great confidence" in CIA chief John Brennan, the White House said on Tuesday, even as a senior Democratic senator accused the agency of spying on Congress and possibly breaking the law.

"The president has great confidence in John Brennan and confidence in our intelligence community and in our professionals at the CIA," White House spokesman Jay Carney told a news briefing.

"I'm not going to comment on particulars of matters that are under review," Carney added when asked about allegations made by Senator Dianne Feinstein.
