    He advocated wiretapping without a court order and 'preventative detention' of suspects by the police.
    He resisted investigating civil rights cases, saying 'The Department of Justice is a law enforcement agency. It is not the place to carry on a program aimed at curing the ills of society.'
    He provided $250,000 in campaign funds for a dirty tricks campaign against the Democrats (1972).
