WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee is launching a barrage of tweets against CIA complaints about the report on Bush-era interrogation techniques.

CIA Director John Brennan is holding a news conference to lay out objections to the committee's report. At the same time, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office is tweeting a series of messages defending the accuracy of the study.

Feinstein's office began tweeting even before Brennan began speaking.

One tweet says "every fact" in the committee's report was based on CIA records, cables or other evidence.

The committee's report concludes the CIA engaged in brutal interrogation techniques and misled the White House and the public about what it was doing.
