Kennedy first pursued the matter as counsel to the Senate Select Committee on Improper Activities in Labor and Management, also known as the McClellan committee. Kennedy continued to investigate the Teamsters after he became attorney general in 1961, and those investigations continued in one form or another through the 1980s.

    “Left”,I beg to differ, the IRB is now the IDO.
    Same cast minus the honorable William Webster ( age could be a factor..he had a long career at FBI head..CIA director etc.).. We have finite lifespans afterall.
    The IRB just spun its wheels around CHI-town and had to come up sounding accomplished and new.

    IRB->IDO..with a IIO and a IRO..
    With a knick knack paddywhack..somebody give that 🐕 a bone..ol man hoffa’s gotta go..,find a new home..taking with him Rome!

There is no report that Taylor attempted to do anything about the stretching out of “6-8 weeks” to 10-11 weeks.
