That Rivera thought the FBI would be sympathetic to the plight of Trotskyists, nationalists and other revolutionaries in the face of GPU persecution shows his considerable political confusion. However, this was an attitude shared by many in Trotsky's household who, in their isolation and adversity, sought assistance from any camp, the imperialist included, in an effort to save him from GPU assassination. In some cases, it led to a lifelong association with the FBI.
Your report's only 'proof' that Rivera was a traitor rests on two pieces of information: that the FBI tailed him throughout a visit to America and also tapped his phone. But surely this is evidence that Rivera was not an FBI agent but an FBI target] Not, it seems, to today's sleuths; they come not simply to revise history but to falsify it.
