Committee members heard testimony from two former Contra leaders about allegations that the CIA sold drugs in the U.S. to help finance covert operations against the Sandanista regime in Nicaragua. They denied any knowledge of the CIA either aiding or allowing drug sales to be used to fund the struggle against the Sandinista regime. Representative Maxine Waters was invited to participate in the questioning. At one point, the hearing was interrupted for several minutes while several members of the audience shouted accusations at the committee and the witnesses. Eden Pastora’s remarks were through an interpreter. close
