I'm not one for conspiracy theories but J. Edgar Hoover was a vile evil racist who was once the most powerful person in all of the United States, even presidents feared going against him. Former president Harry S Truman (president from 1945 to 1953 had this to say about the man. "Hoover transformed the FBI into his private secret police force. We want no Gestapo or secret police. The FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail. J. Edgar Hoover would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him." So could he had? What evidence is their to support this? Presuming there is any evidence.
