205. Here's where SWEATT comes in... LHO was Informant #S-172
Warren Commission staff head Lee Rankin called this ...

"The Dirty Little Rumor."

"On January 24, three days prior to the (January 27) Commission meeting, the Secret Service submitted about thirty investigative reports to the Commission. One of these reports, carrying the control number 767, contained a Secret Service interview with Alonzo) Hudkings (a newspaper reporter). Hudkins told the Secret Service agents that his information came from AllenSweatt, the chief of the criminal division of theSallas sheriff's office. According to Hudkins, Sweatt stated:

Oswald was being paid two hundred dollars per month by the FBi in connection with their subversive investigationn (and) that Oswald had informant number S-172.

Allen Sweatt was never questioned by the Commission or its staff."

End of quote.

"Act of Treason"

Here's the rest of Rankin's quote:

"We do have a dirty rumor that is very bad for the Commission, the problem, and it is very damaging to the agencies that are involved in it and it must be wiped out insofar as it is possible to do by this Commission."

the same, p. 513
