WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Michigan lawmaker is sounding off on the CIA controversy as calls for accountability in the agency grow louder.

An internal investigation found officers secretly monitored computers used by Senate committee staffers preparing a report on the agency's controversial post 9/11 interrogation and detention program.

The CIA had accused them of improperly gaining access to internal documents.

The U.S. Justice Department investigated and said there wasn't enough evidence for further action.

But the CIA's Inspector General found some agency employees "acted in a manner inconsistent with the common understanding" between the agency and panel.

Republican Mike Rogers, Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, says the last report is concerning, but he believes it is an isolated incident.

"It's a bit complicated but the story when briefed by the IG, It makes you stop and pause and say somebody needs to be held accountable, this is very serious but I don't think this is some conspiracy notion that they wanted to spy on either of our committees," said Rogers.

CIA Director John Brennan apologized to the Senate Intelligence Committee last week.

He has set up an accountability board to look further into the matter.
