The chairman of the House intelligence committee says he is “extremely concerned” about WikiLeaks’ release of documents it says came from the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence.

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., says he’s asked the intelligence community for more information about the documents.

He told reporters at the Capitol on Tuesday that his committee may have to probe the matter.

So far, the CIA and the director of national intelligence have declined to comment.

The chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., also has had no comment on the release.
