Senators to vote next week on torture report

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate Intelligence Committee plans to vote next week on declassifying parts of a review on Bush administration-era terrorist interrogations that has sparked a rift with the CIA.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the committee's chairwoman, said Tuesday she won't hold a committee vote this week as originally planned.

The still-secret report runs 6,200 pages. Feinstein wants the release of its 400-page summary and key recommendations.

Some Republicans on the panel have sought more time to study changes in the report and the CIA's input.

The panel and the agency are locked in a dispute related to the report.

Feinstein accuses the CIA of monitoring Senate staffers' computer use and deleting files, undermining constitutional separation of powers. The CIA says the staffers illegally accessed documents. Each side has registered a criminal complaint.
