Oliver North was sworn in by Senator Daniel Inouye (D-HI). Mr. North testified that he had authority and approval from his superiors for all his activities. He maintained that he assumed presidential approval, but did not ever receive direct approval from President Reagan.

Furthermore, North was questioned about shredding and falsifying documents. He was also questioned about soliciting donations for the contras from developing countries. North contradicted testimony from Robert McFarlane that McFarlane told NSC staff not to solicit aid from foreign countries or private sources. close
