Retired Indiana senator and former governor Evan Bayh will chair an accountability board for the Central Intelligence Agency.

His appointment comes after an internal investigation showed CIA personnel improperly gained access to Senate computers.

As NPR reports, the investigation stems back to March when Sen. Dianne Feinstein - chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence - claimed the CIA interfered with committee work on a report about interrogation methods used during the Bush administration.

Agency director John Brennan said this accusation was not true.

However, CIA spokesman Dean Boyd says the inspector general at the CIA found these claims were true.

Brennan apologized and submitted the findings to an accountability board, which Bayh, a former senate intelligence committee member, will now lead.
