WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The FBI wants to interview top members of Congress from both parties about the leak to The New York Times concerning the National Security Agency's domestic surveillance program, sources told CNN.
The Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call first reported that the FBI wanted to question federal legislators as part of its probe. The sources do not know if any members have been interviewed yet.
The FBI declined to comment.
The New York Times in December reported the existence of the surveillance program, which allows phone calls between the United States and overseas to be monitored without a court warrant so long as one party is a terror suspect. It was authorized by President Bush shortly after the September 11, 2001, attacks.
Only a few members of the House and Senate were briefed on the NSA program before it became public.

See ABC-Hastert story. I'll believe it when it's really confirmed.
But I thought they're above the law. Isn't that what they've been saying all week?
After the hissy fit that Hastert, Pelosi and others threw over collecting evidence in the House against Jefferson, I can't immagine that the Senate or House will agree to these interviews. After all, our representatives believe they are above the law. I personally think the DOJ should just throw the journo's in jail until they reveal who told them our national secrets.
The ABC Hastert story? You mean the fake story?
The probe of Hastert that the FBI says is NOT underway.
The probe of Hastert that the Justice Department says is NOT underway.
The probe of Hastert that he has threatened to sue ABC over?
Is that the story you are referring to?
Indictments, impeachment, imprisionment, oh my! Rumor has it that Hillary is going to be indicted in the next week!
Those two jackballs are where I'd start. In fact, get a search warrant and break down the doors of their offices. I wanna see Leaky blow a gasket on the floor of the Senate.
Great news. They can start with Rockefeller and move from there.
Oh Ping A Ling
Send 'em to Gitmo.
Well, it gets curiouser and curiouser!
Rumor is its Hillary...Pass it on!
Yeah, let 'em hang out with their friends.
Did you see the panic look on Pelosi face when she said she stands by what she said that Jefferson should resign (I think from the committee)?
It was priceless
Can we do an investigation of Senate Dems for TREASON. that would be a good start.
I hope that Leaky Leahy and Jay Rockefeller get done by first! :-)
"Mr. Rockefeller, this is your cellmate, Tyrone."
That's the one.
