Church Committee Hearing on FBI Informants FBI informants Gary Thomas Rowe and Mary Jo Cook testified before the Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, commonly known as the Church Committee, on December 2, 1975, about their infiltration of the Ku Klux Klan and anti-Vietnam War groups. Mr. Rowe, wearing a hood to conceal his identity, described how he infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan and with the knowledge of the FBI participated in violence against civil rights activists. Ms. Cook described how she informed against anti-Vietnam War activists. The informants were followed by Deputy Associate FBI Director James Adams who defended the practice. The hearing was preceded by interviews with former committee staffers Frederick Schwarz and Elliot Maxwell, and followed by an interview with Associate U.S. Senate Historian Katherine Scott.
