|A limited hangout to try to control revelations about the US deep state's exploitation of the CIA.|
The Rockefeller Commission (formally the United States President's Commission on CIA Activities within the United States) was a limited hangout set up by US deep state asset Gerald Ford. It was chaired by US Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller.
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.
