The minority leader, the gentleman from Arizona (Mr. RHODES), introduced House Resolution 121, and it seems to me that that pro- posal directs its attention at the princi- pal problem. with which we are con- cerned; namely, the problem of jeopar- dizing the rights of individual American citizens by misuse of our intelligence agencies. That is a subject over which the House Judiciary Committee, and now specific- ally the Subcommittee on Civil Rights, has general jurisdiction, and it is some- thing with which that subcommittee is vitally concerned on a continuing basis. The broader mandate which we have here, it seems to me, is going to involve us in much more than that, as the earlier colloquies have indicated.

Testi- mony before various congressional com- mittees indicates that intelligence. agen- cies have withheld information from the Congress and have engaged in seri- ous abuses and misuses of authority. These are matters which must be fully ..and thoroughly explored. As recent testimony before .the House Judiciary Subcommittee of -which I am chairman -indicates, the surveillance techniques of domestic intelligence agencies are equally worthy of scrutiny. We have evidence that warrantless wiretaps were conducted for as long as 25 years. We have admissions that the FBI monitored some 40 phone calls be- tween one Detroit lawyer and his clients. We have evidence that the Secret Serv- Ice had access without legal process to very revealing telephone toll records. We have information that the FBI used private bank and credit records without any legal authority. We have reports of FBI spying on Members of Congress and domestic political groups including ac- tual disruption of political associations. Mr. Chairman, we have reached a point where the public's confidence in the Nation's law. enforcement agencies is legitimately shaken. A thorough house cleaning of the intelligence community will go a long way toward restoring that confidence.

I think we all know that patriotism rath- er than partisanship is what must guide. us if we are to respond to what the peo- ple told us to do in the last.' election. There is more to it. I think an investiga- tory body has to not only do justice but be seen to do justice., I think that we should rise. to it. I hope very much, since the section does not describe the mem-. bership of the committee, but leaves it entirely to the generosity and the spirit of bipartisanship of the Speaker and of. the leadership and of the great majority of. Democrats in this House, that per- haps it could be at least 6-to-4, if not 5-to-5. - - 1 know that my friends on the. other. side- of the aisle know that I speak in no partisan spirit, but I think it.would con- vince the people of this Nation that we can rise above party, that we are ear- nestly seeking the truth, that we are not trying to go on witch hunts or hurt peo-. - ple, but that we are trying to protect the integrity of our institutions and the ur- gent and necessary fact that the institu- tions of government cannot be used for personal or' political reasons. All this needs to be driven home, and I hope that the composition of the-committee will ef- fect it. I thank the Chairman. The CHAIRMAN. The Clerk- will read. The Clerk read as follows: ?
