President Reagan is satisfied the FBI had a solid basis for starting and continuing its investigation of a group opposing the Administration's policies in Central America, White House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater said. Fitzwater also said the President believes FBI Director William S. Sessions is properly handling an inquiry into the bureau's investigation of the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador, or CISPES. Sessions said Tuesday that the investigation was not always properly directed but did not amount to "massive" spying on opponents of Reagan's policies. Fitzwater repeated his claim that the White House has not had direct involvement in the FBI probe.
