J. Edgar Hoover feared a cabal of ultra-liberal economists with CIA ties would hijack the American economy
A letter released via FOIA documents FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s private fears that a CIA-backed cabal of ultra-liberal reformist economists were plotting a takeover of the American economy.
The letter was released as part of a FOIA request to the FBI on Robert R. Mullen. Mullen played a unique role in history, having founded the Robert Mullen Company, a PR agency and CIA cutout that employed Howard Hunt during Watergate.
