4. Thanks Solly. The Pike Committee looked at the FBI too.

John Edgar Hoover died on May 2, 1972. Someone had removed John Edgar's personal "secret files" really quickly after that.

The DoJ put out some reports of its own after The Pike Committee report.

Here's a quote from one of them: "It was increasingly discovered that POLICE AGENCIES were keeping INTELLIGENCE FILES on people for whom there was NO EVIDENCE of criminality."

For anyone else interested, below is a link (pdf) to a DoJ report issued after the release of The Pike Committee report.

The Pike Committee also looked at assassination, of course.
