(Internal. Use Only - LLM) LIAISON Called Tim Hardy, White House staff, concerning the ICG meeting held yesterday and said in the far ranging discussion where it had been determined that there would not be a moratorium until. a time certain within the Executive Branch before the destruction of improperly collected records, I suggested that he raise with Jack Marsh, Counsellor to the President, the desirability of someone in Justice or the. White house making a general statement of the type of records which will be destroyed and why,and the records which will not be destroyed and why, to counter the distortions which are being built up on the Hill and in the press on this issue. Hardy said he would. do this. 18.

(Unclassified - LLM) LIAISON In response to Eric Hirschhorn, s, Counsel, Subcommittee on Government Information & Individual Rights, House Gover r ons Committee, earlier call, spoke to i ngram, Staff Director, and Ted Jacobs, Staff Member, who had a number of questions on the Director's letters to Senators Mike Mansfield (D., Mont.) and Hugh Scott (R., Pa.). I said Ithought the letters were clear in their views and as they knew a number of the records of greatest concern to the Subcommittee were covered by these letters as not being subject to destruction with the lifting of the moratorium because of litigation, Department of Justice investigations, etc. In connection with their concern that records may be destroyed which need further investigation, I respectfully disagreed. I also disagreed with Ingram's thought that maybe the Director had made a commitment during his appearance before the Subcommittee on 28 April that he would not destroy records covered by H.R. 12039. Rather, I said the Director made it clear, as had Mr. Colby, that records improperly collected and of no further use for retention or investigation, litigation etc. , that they should not be maintained and is a requirement of the Privacy Act and of Executive Order 11905. At the outset I made it clear that I did not want my remarks to be passed on to the press. Internal Use Only - PLC) LIAISON Received a call from FBI. Daley passed on for our information his receipt of a lette_~TAT from C airman Daniel Inouye (D. , Hawaii), Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, requesting background investigations on staff. personnel Filer Ravnholt and Sharon Yoshimura. The FBI is reviewing the draft Select Committee report on assassinations and according to Daley, staff member Jim Johnston, has requested that the Bureau certify that the report is accurate. Johnston claimed that CIA will be making. such a certification after its review. He asked that I check into this since the Bureau does not feel that it can make such a certification. The are only reviewing for declassification. After a discussion with TAT Deputy Inspector General, I called Daley back and infore that the Agency has never made such a certification in its reviews of reports and will so make it clear to Mr. Johnston when he STAT reviews the assassins io.z report tomorrow. a?1/ r,?-r r, :'3 >t~E tds^~E Ca L4 ONLY Approved For Release 2006/08/02 : CIA-RDP78M02660R000200070054-1
