Description
This audio recording is of a lecture given as part of a New School course titled, Civil Liberty Under Attack. Attorney Telford Taylor discusses the problems of congressional investigations, especially in the previous ten to fifteen years, particularly the concept of "loyalty investigations" as conducted by the McCarthy hearings. Taylor summarizes the history of congressional investigations, the importance of constitutional separation of powers, The Bill of Rights, and the Fifth Amendment, and states his own assertion that although the courts, not Congress, should have jurisdiction over trials of subversion, restraint of Congress will have to come from the will of voters, who determine the composition of Congress. A tape cue sheet is included.
