The CIA's policy of allowing employees to moonlight for private companies has been revealed in a new book, "Broker, Trader, Lawyer, Spy."
According to a Politico report, Senate Intelligence Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein wants answers, and CIA watchers were surprised to hear about it.
Each request is taken on a case-by-case basis, a CIA spokesman said. Other Intelligence Community agencies also allow outside employment with prior approval.
The policy allows employees to make extra money, prompting them to stay instead of leaving for more lucrative private jobs.
