The Church Committee investigates JFK

In 1976, the Senate investigated CIA plots to assassinate foreign leaders and their possible connection to the assassination of JFK. What they found was disturbing.

The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Activities, chaired by Senator Frank Church, re-opened the investigation of JFK’s murder after revelations about CIA assassination plots showed the superficiality of the Warren Commission’s investigation.

The Church Committee did not have the authorization or resources to do a comprehensive investigation but it did provide the most penetrating account to date of CIA activities before and after JFK was killed.
