(Studio) FBI representative James Adams says FBI harassment of Martin Luther King had no legal justification.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner
(DC) Probe of King began when FBI received information of Communists influencing King. [FBI deputy associate director ADAMS - says no basis for FBI harassment.] [Senator Frank CHURCH - asks about motive.] [ADAMS - says some felt there was danger to United States and acted. No 1 provided instructions or directions.] FBI embarrassed but not shaken by disclosures and will welcome new guidelines, which Congress will provide.
