“I think that the report, to those who have studied it closely, has collapsed like a house of cards, and I think the people who read it in the long
run future will see that. I frankly believe that we have shown that the [investigation of the] John F. Kennedy assassination was snuffed out before it
even began, and that the fatal mistake the Warren Commission made was not to use its own investigators, but instead to rely on the CIA and FBI
personnel, which played directly into the hands of senior intelligence officials who directed the cover-up.”
— Senator Richard Schweiker on “Face the Nation” in 1976.
Republican Schweiker and Democrat Gary Hart headed the Church Committee subcommittee that produced the report entitled “The Investigation of the
Assassination of President John F. Kennedy: Performance of the Intelligence Agencies.”
