The National Security Agency has formally requested that the Department of Justice open a criminal investigation into the agency’s leaks, Reuters reported Saturday evening.

Shawn Turner, a spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, told Reuters that the NSA had filed a “crimes report” with the DOJ.

Recent reports by The Guardian, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal revealed a global secret surveillance initiative by the Obama administration and the NSA far beyond the scope of what was first warned about during the George W. Bush administration by The New York Times.

The Week then went on to report that the NSA is feeding off of information from at least 50 companies.
