    Congressional Agency Questions Legality of Wiretaps

    The Bush administration appears to have violated the National Security Act by limiting its briefings about a warrantless domestic eavesdropping program to congressional leaders, according to a memo from Congress's research arm released yesterday.

    The Congressional Research Service opinion said that the amended 1947 law requires President Bush to keep all members of the House and Senate intelligence committees "fully and currently informed" of such intelligence activities as the domestic surveillance effort.

    Rep. Jane Harman (D-Ca) ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence committee requested the analysis.
