Subjects Matter: FBI Files

https://www.muckrock.com/project/subjects-matter-fbi-files-10/

"This project aims to sift through the hundreds of thousands of pages of FBI archival material we've released, so we can better understand why the Bureau had an eye on these people - and through that, better understand who they're keeping tabs on today."

Examples:

James Angleton

Jim Garrison

E. Howard Hunt

 

Angleton's CIA consulting contract (extended beyond 1975 - contrary to what Colby and Angelton both told the Church Committee)

The Interagency Feud

https://www.muckrock.com/news/archives/2018/oct/30/fbi-angleton-fabian-society/

“In the late ‘50s, a former Army Intelligence chief alleged that a secret cabal of socialists and Communists were infiltrating the government. As part of these allegations, the Federal Bureau of Investigation received 122 names, 119 of whom had a total of over 5,500 references in FBI files. Of these, there was derogatory information on 105 individuals, including some senior officials and even hardline anti-communists such as Central Intelligence Agency spymaster James Angleton.

The Bureau dismissed the accusations as the result of an interagency feud, and performed minimal research into them. However, the FBI did congratulate itself on having already been aware of most of the individuals and their alleged subversive tendencies, which included their sometimes having thoughts similar to those of socialists.”

“The Bureau believed that the allegations resulted from, or at least related to, what it described as a “feud” between CIA and G-2 (Army Intelligence).”
