House Oversight Committee Demands Answers From NSA Over Spying on Israel, Congress (VIDEO)

Fox News' Ed Henry has the report:


A House committee asked the National Security Agency on Wednesday for information about a media report that the agency, while spying on Israeli officials, also intercepted communications between the Israelis and members of Congress.

In a letter to NSA Director Michael Rogers, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz and subcommittee Chairman Ron DeSantis said the story in Tuesday's Wall Street Journal raised "questions concerning the processes NSA employees follow in determining whether intercepted communications involved Members of Congress."

The Journal, citing current and former U.S. officials, said the NSA was targeting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli officials when they launched their campaign on Capitol Hill to try to derail the Iran nuclear deal
