Utah professor familiar with Jack Anderson's papers says the FBI's inquiry about them is "a fishing expedition"

Breaking News

The FBI’s inquiries into the Jack Anderson archive, now held at George Washington University, is a “fishing expedition," according to a University of Utah political science professor, Tim Chambless. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Mr. Chambless reviewed 85 boxes of the archive years ago -- probably when they were held at Brigham Young University, though the article doesn’t specify. Mr. Chambless says the documents contain facts that "were politically embarrassing to a few people," but that there was “nothing in there with regard to national security."

However, he notes that when he was at the National Archives in Maryland recently, reviewing documents on Anderson, he found that a number of documents had been removed from the files. “This is very troubling to me,” he said. (The Salt Lake Tribune)
