Nedzi seeks to leave panel

From Wire Service Reports
WASHINGTON - An angry Rep Lu-
cien Nedzi tried to resign yesterday as
chairman of the House Intelligence Com-
mittee in a move that immediately
halted the House Central Intelligence
Agency investigation.
The committee's public questioning of
CIA Director William Colby was abrupt-
ly cancelled because Republican mem-
bers refused to attend in the wake of
Nedzi's (D-Mich) declared intention to
THE HEARING was cancelled by a
subcommittee whose chairman, Rep.
James Stanton, (D-Ohio), said outside
the hearing room he knows the Central
Intelligence Agency was involved in

"successful assassination plots."
Stanton confirmed twice a Cleveland
Plain Dealer story that he knew there
had been at least one successful assas-
sination in which the CIA was involved
-but refused to elaborate.
Stanton refused to say who was as-
sassinated, how the CIA was involved or
to give any other details.
BUT A committee member, Rep. Mi-
chael Harrington, (D-Mass.), said Stan-
ton was probably quoting "in-house gos-
sip" because the committee has not re-
ceived such information from the CIA
Nedzi, filed a letter of resignation with
Speaker Carl Albert, who quickly put the
issue on ice by deferring any action
until Monday.

Nedzi's sudden move appeared to have
been prompted by the claims of some
Intelligence Committee members that
he is soft on the CIA and incapable of
overseeing impartially the Intelligence
subcommittee's scheduled investigation
of the agency.
THE LAST straw for Nedzi came
Wednesday night when the full Intelli-
gence Committee voted 6 to 1 to dis-
approve his attempt to name the five
members of the CIA subcommittee -
including himself as "ex-officio" mem-
ber but excluding several Democrats
who have criticized him.
The drive to oust Nedzi erupted after
disclosure that the CIA briefed Nedzi
more than a year ago on political as-

sassination plots and domestic spying
without Nedzi taking any action.
Nedzi had said he hoped the compro-
mise creation of the CIA subcommittee
would remove any question of whether
he had a conflict of interest and he
would remain chairman of the commit-
tee investigating all U. S. intelligence
agencies including the CIA.
BUT HE said the Democrats stripped
him of power at a caucus Thursday by
requiring that all 10 members of the
full committee also be members of the
CIA subcommittee.
Rep. Robert Giaimo, (D-Conn.), said
the committee Democrats want Stanton
to move up as chairman of the full com-
