CIA inspector general known for Senate spying scandal to step down

CIA Inspector General David Buckley will leave his post at the end of January, the agency said Monday.

Last July Buckley revealed five CIA employees improperly accessed a hard drive the Senate Intelligence Committee investigators used to compile the controversial torture report. The CIA says his resignation is voluntary, and he'll move to the private sector after 35 years in government, The Huffington Post reports.

The scandal resulted in an accountability review board to consider punishment for those employees, but the panel is not recommending discipline for anyone, according to The New York Times.
