Tom Charles Huston Church Committee Testimony Tom Charles Huston testified before the Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, commonly known as the Church Committee, on the 43-page plan he presented to the President Nixon and others on ways to collect information about anti-war and “radical” groups, including burglary, electronic surveillance, and opening of mail. The plan was never implemented, but the committee learned that many of these practices were in effect long before the plan was submitted. Historical context was provided by former Church Committee majority counsel Frederick Schwarz, Elliot Maxwell, who worked on the staff of committee member Richard Schweiker (R-PA), and Senate Associate Historian Katherine Scott. close
