Terry Lenzner, the Investigator

Wednesday, October 09, 2013

Investigative lawyer Terry Lenzner has uncovered facts that have shaped policy and influenced major legal battles. At the Justice Department in 1964, he investigated the murder of three civil rights workers. As a counsel to the Senate Watergate Committee, Lenzner investigated Nixon and followed the money trail that led to the Watergate burglary and cover-up; he was the first person to deliver a congressional subpoena to a sitting U.S. president. He helped identify the Unabomber, investigated the circumstances of Princess Diana’s death, and cleared Hugo Chavez of false corruption charges. In his memoir, The Investigator: Fifty Years of Uncovering the Truth, he tells stories from his varied career and high-profile cases for the first time.

Can someone e-mail me an address so as to send Terry Lenzer correspondence.

I'm asking for a mailing address preferably to Mr. T Lenzer If not possible an e-mailing would do.

Former NYCPD street cop in what is known as a "High Incident" Precinct. Gun shots in my last gun battle left me with permanent nerve damage post-operative. Borough Commander's visit to KCH Kings County Hospital post shooting made it clear no more. (5 hospitalization including gun shots in my last 17 months in the 71 Precinct).Lots more stuff but I'll

In the recordings, Defense Sec. Clark Clifford tells LBJ that the FBI had overheard a Nixon campaign adviser persuading the South Vietnamese government to withdraw from the talks, promising them a better deal if they wait until Nixon is elected. Hanoi was offering major concessions at the time, and a settlement would have allowed Johnson to stop bombing North Vietnam. Knowing that this would derail his campaign, Nixon intervened. LBJ accused Nixon of "treason" but said nothing for fear of revealing that the FBI was bugging South Vietnamese government figures. Nixon went on to escalate the war - at the expense of 22,000 more American lives - before signing a peace accord in 1973. [From "THE WEEK" magazine, 3-29-13.]
