34 Congress members call for NYPD-CIA probe

A letter signed by 34 members of Congress was sent to the Department of Justice and House Judiciary Committee

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — More than two dozen members of Congress are calling for investigation into the CIA's relationship with the New York Police Department.

The members of Congress want to know more about the CIA's collaboration with the police department to monitor Muslims after an Associated Press investigation.

A letter signed by 34 members of Congress was sent to the Department of Justice and House Judiciary Committee asking for a thorough probe.

Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif., says: "We cannot allow the explicit profiling and targeting of Muslim Americans by the very people who are tasked with protecting and serving their community."

Earlier this year, the AP revealed that the CIA helped the NYPD build intelligence programs to monitor Muslims after Sept. 11, and a top CIA operative was working at the police department.
