In 2014, the U.S. Senate claimed the CIA's secret detention center conducted harsh interrogation methods, which included waterboarding and “rectal rehydration."  Federal prison officials were “wow’ed” at the site, because “they have never been in a facility where individuals are so sensory deprived.”

The ACLU filed a request of information after the Senate panel’s report was issued, in late 2014. Last April, the Justice Department responded that it did not have any documents on the trip. The Obama administration denied an appeal last September.

The ACLU took matters in to their own hands and filed a civil complaint on Thursday.
