>>Not by standing law, it wasn't.

Here's the pertinent details from one of the many sites on the subject, just so
its clear who was on the commission and how it was formed:

"By his order of November 29 establishing the Commission, President Johnson
sought to avoid parallel investigations and to concentrate fact-finding in a
body having the broadest national mandate. As Chairman of the Commission,
President Johnson selected Earl Warren, Chief Justice of the United States,
former Governor and attorney general of the State of California. From the U.S.
Senate, he chose Richard B. Russell, Democratic Senator from Georgia and
chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, former Governor of, and county
attorney in, the State of Georgia, and John Sherman Cooper, Republican Senator
from Kentucky, former county and circuit judge, State of Kentucky, and U.S.
Ambassador to India. Two members of the Commission were drawn from the U.S.
House of Representatives: Hale Boggs, Democratic U.S. Representative from
Louisiana and majority whip, and Gerald R. Ford, Republican, U.S.
Representative from Michigan and chairman of the House Republican Conference.
From private life, President Johnson selected two lawyers by profession, both
of whom have served in the administrations of Democratic and Republican
Presidents: Allen W. Dulles, former Director of Central Intelligence, and John
J. McCloy, former President of the International Bank for Reconstruction and
Development, former U.S. High Commissioner for Germany, and during World War
II, the Assistant Secretary of War."
