John Simkin Posted June 28, 2005 Share Posted June 28, 2005 Has anyone done any research into Robert F. Bennett, the Republican Senator for Utah? In 1957 Bennett became a chaplain in the Army National Guard. In 1969 Bennett became chief congressional liason at the Department of Transportation. Two years later he purchased Robert R. Mullen & Co, a public relations company in Washington. Amongst his clients was Howard Hughes. It was later discovered that the company was a CIA front organization. When Hunt retired from the CIA in 1970 Richard Helms suggested he should go and work for Robert Mullen. On 7th July, 1971, Charles Colson and John Ehrlichman appointed Hunt to the White House staff. Working under Egil Krogh and Gordon Liddy Hunt became a member of the Special Investigations Group (SIG). The group was (informally known as "the Plumbers" because their job was to stop leaks from Nixon's administration). However, Hunt continued to work for Bennett. In fact, Bennett was able to help Hunt with his work at the White House. This included telling Hunt that Hank Greenspun, had enough information on Muskie to "blow him ut of the water." There is some evidence that Bennett was Deep Throat (I will post on this later). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
