The CIA’s inspector general earlier cleared the agency of any wrongdoing in its relationship with the NYPD but criticized how the collaboration was established.

The investigation came after AP articles showed the NYPD collaborated with the CIA to set up operations that scrutinized Muslim communities.

Kelly faced the media yesterday for the first time since reports surfaced that a woman had accused his son of rape, refusing to discuss the case and referring questions to Manhattan prosecutors.

“I’m not going to . . . with all due respect, answer any questions on this matter,’’ Kelly said at a news conference when queried about the case involving his son Greg, an anchor for “Good Day New York.’’

The office of District Attorney Cyrus Vance has taken over the case to avoid a conflict of interest. Prosecutors have declined to comment; Greg Kelly has denied wrongdoing.
