Reagan, Iran, Contras and Breaching the Public Trust

December 16, 1986

It seems that President Reagan's team is using the liberal safeguards of the Constitution with regard to due process to great advantage. For someone from this Administration, which has protested loudly the so-called abuses of our present judicial system, to hide behind the legal technicalities of the Fifth Amendment is a clear contradiction of policy. To the casual observer, what's going on at the White House smells like obstruction of justice--a blatant attempt to stall the independent inquiry into the Iranian affair until all behinds are covered, and it stinks!
