Sign of the times: The Federal Bureau of Investigation under director J. Edgar Hoover was encouraged to try to damage King’s reputation in the 1960’s under the Kennedy administration. Hoover, with the approval of President Kennedy and Attorney General Robert Kennedy, established phone taps and bugs to gather discriminating evidence against King.
