San Francisco Chronicle Learns That In 1980's FBI Conducted "Wide-Ranging" Unlawful Intelligence Operations Against University Of California Students

Secret FBI files reveal covert activities at UC Bureau's campus operations involved Reagan, CIA

Seth Rosenfeld, Chronicle Staff Writer Sunday, June 9, 2002

"Under the guise of protecting national security, the FBI conducted wide-ranging and unlawful intelligence operations concerning the University of California that at different points involved the head of the CIA and then-Gov. Ronald Reagan, The Chronicle has learned. According to thousands of pages of FBI records obtained by The Chronicle after a 17-year legal fight, the FBI unlawfully schemed with the head of the CIA to harass students, faculty and members of the Board of Regents, and mounted a concerted campaign to destroy the career of UC President Clark Kerr, which included sending the White House derogatory allegations about him that the bureau knew were false.

The FBI, in contrast, developed a 'close and cordial' relationship with Reagan, who made campus unrest a major issue and vowed to fire Kerr during his 1966 gubernatorial campaign. And after he was elected, the FBI failed to report that Reagan falsely stated on a federal security clearance form that he never had been a member of any group officially deemed subversive, an omission that could have been prosecuted as a felony.

The FBI later secretly gave Gov. Reagan's administration information it could use 'against' protesters."
