Lawyers for a Chicago-area terror suspect have released a letter from the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee in which it refuses to hand over any intelligence it has on the teenager.

Adel Daoud, 19, of Hillside is accused of trying to ignite an inert bomb given to him by undercover agents in Chicago last year. He denies the charges.

His attorneys asked the committee to turn over any intelligence it possessed on their client.

But committee legal counsel Morgan Frankel refused, invoking committee privilege.

The letter also addresses earlier claims committee chairwoman Dianne Feinstein appeared to make that expanded surveillance was used to go after Daoud. It insists she never confirmed that was the case.

If they can confirm such surveillance was used, Daoud's lawyers intend to challenges its constitutionality.
