RPP

sues govt.
By GORDON ATCHESON
and DAN BIDDLE
Special To The Daily
DETROIT-At a Monday morning press-
conference here, the Rainbow People's
Party (RPP) announced that three party
members have filed a $1.2 million law suit
against several former high level govern-
ment officials, including former Attorney
General John Mitchell charging them with
illegal wiretapping.
Others named as defendants in the law
suit are former Attorney General Richard
SINCLAIR Kleindienst, former acting FBI director L.

over wiretaps

Patrick Gray, and Clyde Tolson, the ex-
ecutor of J. Edgar Hoover's estate.
RPP LEADER John Sinclair called the
defendants "the leading criminal figures
of the day." The suit originally included
Richard Nixon as a co-defendant but the
court refused to allow the President to be
named in the case.
The suit was officially filed on April 2
in a Washington D.C. federal district court
on behalf of Sinclair, Lawrence' "Pun"
Plamondon, and John Forrest. The FBI
arrested that trio for the 1968 bombing of

a local CIA office.
The government based a large portion of
its case on information gained through the
use of bugging devices, -authorized by
Mitchell "in the interest of national secur-
ity."
DURING THE TRIAL, the government
refused to make public the specific nature
of the wiretaps or the information gained
through their use. The attorneys for Sin-
clair, Plamondon, and Forrest claimed the
failure to reveal such detailed information
