This “news release” written by David S. Broder lays out the public’s expectations for Sen. Frank Church and Sen. John Tower, a Democrat and Republican, respectively. Broder says that many thought their partisan differences would create for some interesting debate during the investigations, but these assumptions were quickly put to rest when both men expressed wishes to remain as nonpartisan as possible for something this important.
That being said, this document serves as a representation of what the public thought was happening or going on during the investigation, but for obvious reasons, Church promised to fire anyone who leaked information that could endanger the lives or careers of any secret service officials.
