Here, in brief, are a few of
the recommendations made by
WSPF in its final report:
The President should not nom-
inate, and the Senate should re-
fuse to confirm, any person
nominated for attorney general,
U.S. attorney or a high Justice
Department position who served
in a high-level position in the
President's campaign.
Presidential nominees f o r
heads of such agencies as the
Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI), Internal Revenue Serv-
ice (IRS), and Secret Service
should be highly qualified per-
sons with independent reputa-
tions who have not played lead-
ing roles in the President's po-
litical campaigns.
The administration should es-
tablish a policy and disclose it

ity" to authorize warrantless
