Yeah, and as a member of two subversive organizations before he became
But the FBI had a problem.
As governor, Reagan would have access to UC's atomic research data.
The Atomic Energy Act required the FBI to conduct a comprehensive
background investigation of him.
The process started on Dec. 18, 1966, when Reagan filled out a
Personnel Security Questionnaire that asked, among other questions:
"Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of any organization
which has been designated by the United States Attorney General as
required under the provisions of Executive Order 10450?
"Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of any foreign or
domestic organization, association, movement, group, or combination of
persons which is totalitarian, fascist, communist, or subversive . . .
Applicants were required to list any such groups and the dates they
were involved with them.
Reagan answered "no" to both questions on the form, which contained a
warning that "any false statement herein may be punished as a felony."
Reagan received shining recommendations from everyone the FBI
But files of the Los Angeles FBI office showed that in 1946 Reagan had
been a sponsor and director of the Committee for a Democratic Far East
Policy, which had been designated as subversive by the U.S. Attorney
General under Executive Order 10450.
The records also showed that also in 1946 Reagan had been a member of
the American Veterans Committee, the California section of which had
been cited in a report by the predecessor of the Burns committee as
"communist dominated and (as) a vociferous, decadent minority in
national AVC affairs."
But Grapp, head of the L.A. office, approved a report that conformed
to Reagan's Personnel Security Questionnaire -- omitting Reagan's
association with the two groups officially deemed subversive.
When FBI officials in the bureau's headquarters read Grapp's report,
they ordered him to amend the document to include Reagan's role in the
The bureau could not risk the omission. Hundreds of people in the late
1940s and early 1950s had faced hearings and sometimes dismissals from
federal employment for failing to disclose memberships in groups
But the final report to the Atomic Energy Commission, prepared by FBI
headquarters, did not mention Reagan's false statement that he had
never belonged to a subversive organization, which by law could itself
be reason to deny a security clearance."
He had no illusions about them.
That's right. He knew they were innocent, and accused them anyway.
