Rockefeller Commission

President Gerald Ford creates the Commission to Investigate Central Intelligence Agency Activities Within the United States, chaired by Vice President Nelson Rockefeller. The Rockefeller Commission disclosed illegal domestic activities performed by the Agency and considered allegations of possible CIA involvement with the assassination of President Kennedy. It found no credible evidence of CIA complicity, and the commission’s medical panel upheld the findings of the Warren Commission.
