Presumably such documents were microfilmed and returned to their proper places.

He declined. however, to Say whether he thought the documents were stolen by someone in or out- side his office. saying the whole matter was before the grand jury and the committee and he couldn't publicly discuss details.

“I mean a theft was committed. Period,” he said.
