Federal lawmakers are calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to respond to a Reuters report that showed the NSA was supplying the DEA with surveillance information about domestic, non-terrorism cases, Reuters reported Monday evening.

Five Democrats in the Senate and three congressmen want to know if the DEA – as reported – passed NSA intelligence to other agencies, including the FBI, IRS and Homeland Security. The instructions: Never reveal your source, even in court, according to Reuters.

“These allegations raise serious concerns that gaps in the policy and law are allowing overreach by the federal government’s intelligence gathering apparatus,” wrote the senators – Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, Ron Wyden of Oregon, Tom Udall of New Mexico, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Sherrod Brown of Ohio.

The Justice Department confirmed it is investigating.
