CIA Being Sued Over Domestic Spying Collaboration with NYPD

The CIA is being sued for withholding information about its cooperation on domestic spying as part of the New York Police Department’s counter-terrorism surveillance program.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) filed a lawsuit at the end of December seeking the release of a report by the CIA’s inspector general that examined the legality of spying on American soil.

CIA spy activity at home made headlines in 2011 when a series of investigative reports by the Associated Press exposed the CIA’s role in the NYPD’s Intelligence Unit, which kept tabs on New York’s Muslim community despite a lack of evidence of any crimes.
