REPORT
[Pursuant to H. Res. 5, 79th Cong., 1st sess.]
The National Lawyers Guild is the foremost legal bulwark of theCommunist Party, its front organizations, and controlled unions.Since its inception it has never failed to rally to the legal defense of theCommunist Party and individual members thereof, including knownespionage agents. It has consistently fought against national, State,and local legislation aimed at curbing the Communist conspiracy.It has been most articulate in its attacks upon all agencies of theGovernment seeking to expose or prosecute the subversive activitiesof the Communist network, including national, State, and localinvestigative committees, the Department of Justice, the FBI, andlaw enforcement agencies generally. Through its affiliation with theInternational Association of Democratic Lawyers, an internationalCommunist-front organization, the National Lawyers Guild hasconstituted itself an agent of a foreign principal hostile to the interestsof the United States. It has one far afield to oppose the foreignpolicies of the United States, in ine with the current line of the SovietUnion.These aims-the real aims of the National Lawyers Guild, asdemonstrated conclusively b its activities for the past 13 years ofits existence-are not specif?ed in its constitution or statement ofavowed purpose. In order to attract non-Communists to serve as acover for its actual purpose as an appendage to the Communist Party,the National Lawyers Guild poses benevolently as “a professionalorganization which shall function as an effective social force in theservice of the people to the end that human rights shall be regardedas more sacred than property rights.” In the entire history of theguild there is no record of its ever having condemned such instances
