The board’s report amounted to a remarkable turnabout in a long running dispute between Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the senior Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, and CIA Director John Brennan about whether Feinstein’s aides acted appropriately when they removed CIA documents they deemed highly incriminating — documents the CIA considered an internal review to which the Senate was not entitled.

The documents were redacted and taken to the Senate’s secure facility in the Hart building near the Capitol.
