(FYI) The Huston Plan:

(in a nutshell from wiki)
A 43 page report and outline of proposed security operations by White House aide Tom Charles Huston in 1970. Nixon wanted more information about 'left-wing radicals' and the anti-war movement in general. Huston had been assigned.
Among other things the plan called for
domestic burglary,
illegal electronic surveillance
opening the mail of domestic "radicals".
the creation of camps in Western states where anti-war protesters would be detained.
In mid-July 1970 Nixon ratified the proposals ..submitted as a document to
the directors of the FBI,
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA),
Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)
and the National Security Agency (NSA).
..despite the ultimate decision by the President to revoke the Huston Plan, several of its provisions were implemented anyway.
After the Huston Plan
the FBI lowered the age of campus informants
reinstated its use of "mail covers"
continued to submit names to the CIA mail program.
This would include
the Plumbers Unit,
the proposed fire-bombing of the Brookings Institution,
the 1971 burglary of the office of the psychiatrist of Daniel Ellsberg,
the creation of a White House enemies list,
use of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to punish those deemed to be enemies.
