WASHINGTON (AP) - The Justice Department says no criminal charges will be brought in connection with a dispute between the CIA and Senate Intelligence Committee over the handling of sensitive classified material.

The fight broke out in March when California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the committee chair, accused the CIA of improperly searching and removing documents from a computer network used by Senate staffers preparing a report on harsh interrogation methods. The CIA, meanwhile, accused Senate staffers of improperly obtaining sensitive CIA documents.

The Justice Department had been asked to investigate whether laws were broken on either side.

Spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement Thursday that the department had reviewed the matters and did not find sufficient evidence to warrant a criminal investigation.
