Former Vice President Dick Cheney told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that he had “formally” asked the CIA to release memos that he claims show the U.S. got valuable intelligence from harsh interrogations.

A senior intelligence source tells NBC News that the CIA has no record of a formal request from Cheney. “And regarding Vice President Cheney’s request to declassify other memos, a senior intelligence official tells NBC News that the CIA has received no such request from the vice president. Not clear what they would do if they got one,” reported Andrea Mitchell.
