The United States President's Commission on CIA Activities within the United States is also referred to as the Rockefeller Commission. It was set up by Gerald Ford.

It was created in response to a December 1974 report in The New York Times that the CIA had conducted illegal domestic activities, including experiments on U.S. citizens, during the 1960s. The commission issued a single report in 1975, touching upon certain CIA abuses including mail opening and surveillance of domestic dissident groups. It also publicized Project MKULTRA.
