MS of Senator Joseph McCarthy speaking before an enthusiastic audience of no-doubt Republicans after the Army Hearings: "We're going through an unusual procedure on the Senate floor right now. It's a result of the fifth investigation of McCarthy. There will be a sixth. There will be a seventh, an eighth. As long as I continue to try to expose people who are traitors to this country. If I would quit now, why we'd end with the fifith invistigation, but take my word for it, my good friend. Regardless of what this Senate may do or censure, this fight to expose those who would destroy this nation will go on and on." MS delegates at convention holding pro-McCarthy placards. Slo-mo MCU of Joe smiling into camera.

MS of Sen. Joseph McCarthy sitting at a desk laden with microphones during the Army Hearings: "I am getting very, very weary of sitting here and acting as though we're playing some little game. This Committee's activities may well determine whether this nation will live or die. We've got to clean out those responsible, either knowingly or because they were simple dupes covering up Communist and traitors-- not dead ones but live ones." MS Sen. McCarthy and ROY COHN at Army hearings.

Montage of Senate Committee Hearing, specifically the Owen Lattimore case. MSs of OWEN LATTIMORE testifying, denying the charges that he was a top Soviet agent, then he lambastes Joe and the hearings altogether: "I am not and have never been a member of the Communist Party. I have never been nor affiliated with the Communist Party. I have never believed in the principles of Communism, either within the United States or China or the Far East or anywhere in the world. I trust that the Senator's promise that he will retire from the arena if his charges against me fail is not as insincere he is too reckless, careless and irresponsible." More shots of Lattimore testifying to Senate committee, posing for the cameras, exiting hearing room. MS of McCarthy seated at a desk littered with papers and microphones as he talks animatedly about something (no audio).

The job of all of us, of every American who loves his country and freedom, to rise up and put a stop to this terrible business. This is one of the greatest challenges we face today." MS/CUs of Sen. McCarthy giving speech to an excited crowd at the 1952 Republican National Convention: "One Communist on the faculty of one university is one Communist too many.

If it were in my power to forgive your recklessness and cruelty, I would do so. I like to think I'm a gentle man, but your forgiveness will have to come from someone other than me." McCarthy retorts that he's baiting the committee, to which Welch asks that he drop the issue and leave the lad alone ("At long last, have you no sense of decency?"). McCarthy badgers on.

I make that point because of repeating hearsay. Senator John McClellan (D Arkansas) and if they are not produced as witnesses I certainly will not insist on hearsay testimony.

Chief Counsel Roy Cohn sits next to McCarthy. Joseph McCarthy (R Wisconsin). Mr. Chairman, may I say regardless of what the Chair and Mr. McClellan decided, when Mr. Stevens said it was my responsibility to speak for the Army , he is not speaking for the Army here. All that we ve been investigating is some Communists in the Army, a very small percentage, I would say much less than one percent. And when the Secretary says that he is in effect speaking for the Army, he is putting the 99 and 9/10 percent of good honorable loyal men in the Army in the position of trying to oppose the exposure of Communists in the Army. I think that it should be made clear at the outset so we needn t waste time on it. Hour after hour that Mr. Stevens is speaking for Mr. Stevens, and those who are speaking through him. When Mr. Adams speaks, he is speaks for Mr. Adams and those who are speaking through him. And likewise Mr. Hensel. And I may say that I resent very very much his attempt to connect the great American Army with this attempt to sabotage the efforts of this Committee's investigation into Communism. John McClellan. I again say Mr. Chairman that there s nothing in this statement from which an inference can be drawn that the Army has become a party in interest to this controversy. And we are in accord with the Senator that the parties in interest are Mr. Stevens, Mr. Adams, and Mr. Hensel. Joseph McCarthy (R Wisconsin). If that s understood then I have no objections. Senator Karl Mundt. That is definitely understood and I think our secretary

Secretary Of The Army Robert Stevens. I suggest you check with those services. It is a singular thing to me that this serious charge that I tried to persuade the Chairman of this committee to investigate the Navy and the Air Force was kept secret so long. Why should it have come only to light four months later on the day after the Army chronology of events became public. Now as to Senator McCarthy s charge of blackmail. This charge was included in the Senator s memorandum dates December 9th and also made public March 12th. In this case for more than three months, this most serious charge that the Chairman of this committee had been blackmailed by the Secretary of the Army was kept secret not only from the public but from the other members of the committee as I understand it. I do not know what the Senator had in mind when he made this charge, but during the 90 days in which he kept it secret Joseph McCarthy (R Wisconsin). Point of order Mr. Chairman. The Secretary and I assume, by an honest mistake is constantly referring to my being blackmailed. There s never been a charge that I was blackmailed. There s been a charge that was an attempt to blackmail, a very, very unsuccessful attempt and I think the record should be clear on that at this time. Senator Karl Mundt. The Senator will have a chance on his cross examination to bring that up when he interviews the Secretary of the Army. Secretary of the Army Robert Stevens. I do not know what the Senator had in mind when he made this charge, but during the 90 days in which he kept it secret he continued to make flattering remarks about me in public.

N/A
MS's of ROBERT T. STEVENS being sworn in, giving opening statement (Army counsel JOSEPH WELSH stands at his left): DAVID SCHINE WAS ELIGIBLE FOR THE DRAFT. EFFORTS WERE MADE BY THE CHAIRMAN OF THIS COMMITTEE... TO SECURE A COMMISSION FOR HIM. MR SCHINE WAS NOT QUALIFIED, AND HE WAS NOT COMMISSIONED... THE CHRONOLOGY OF MARCH 10TH EXPOSES WHAT YOU MAY FIND TO BE SUBSTANTIAL AND UNDUE EFFORTS ON THE PART OF SENATOIR MCCARTHY AND MEMBERS OF HIS STAFF TO HAVE PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT GIVEN TO G. DAVID SCHINE... THEY DEALT WITH THA MATTER BY MAKING CHARGES AGAINST DEPT OF ARMY PERSONNEL AND BY ATTEMPTING TO DRAW ATTENTION TO SITUATIONS TOTALLY IRRELAVANT TO THE SCHINE MATTER...

N/A
MS of McCarthy's rebuttal to Stevens' opening statement: ALL WE HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATING IS SOME COMMUNISTS IN THE ARMY, A VERY SMALL PERECENTAGE... WHEN THE SECRETARY SAYS THAT IN EFFECT I AM SPEAKING FOR THE ARMY HE IS PUTTING THE 99 AND 9/10 PERCENT OF HONORABLE AND LOYAL MEN IN THE ARMY IN THE POSIITON OF TRYING TO OPPOSE THE EXPOSURE OF COMMUNISTS IN THE ARMY... I RESENT VERY VERY MUCH HIS ATTEMPT TO CONNECT THE GREAT AMERICAN ARMY WITH THIS ATTEMPT TO SABOTAGE THE EFFORTS OF THIS COMMITTEE'S EFFORTS INTO INVESTIGATING COMMUNISM.

N/A
Continuation of Stevens' opening statement: I NOW TURN TO THE CHARGE MADE BY SEN MCCARTHY. ONE, WHICH I URGED THE SEN TO GO AFTER THE NAVY AND THE AIR FORCE. TWO, THAT I AM GUILTY OF BLACKMAIL. I WOULD LIKE, FIRST, TO RECALL BRIEFLY AT THIS POINT CERTAIN EVENTS ARISING OUT OF THE GENERAL ZWICKER INCIDENT... IT IS A SINGULAR THING TO ME TAHT THIS SERIOUS CHARGE THAT I TRIED TO PERSUADE THE CHAIRMAN OF THIS COMMITTEE TO INVESTIGATE THE NAVY AND THE AIR FORCE WAS KEPT FOR SO LONG... (then discusses the blackmail charge)... THE FACT REMAINS THAT THIS MOST SERIOUS CHARGE IS STILL ON THE RECORD. I THEREFORE STATE THAT IT IS ABSOLUTELY FALSE... THE SCHINE CASE IS ONLY AN EXAMPLE OF THE WRONGFULY SEEKING OF PRIVILEGE, OF THE PERVERSION OF POWER. IT HAS BEEN A DISTRACTION THAT HAS KEPT MANY MEN FROM THE PERFORMANCE OF TASKS FAR MORE IMPORTANT FOR THE WELFARE OF THIS COUNTRY THAN THE CONVENIENCE OF A SINGLE ARMY PRIVATE. IN CONCLUSION, I WANT TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT THE UNITED STATES ARMY DOES NOT CODDLE COMMUNISTS.
