Committee On The Judiciary
Amnesty and Pardon for Political Prisoners
Excerpt from Amnesty and Pardon for Political Prisoners: Hearings Before a Subcommittee of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, Sixty-Sixth Congress, Third Session It was said that we could not win the war unless we violated the Constitution of the United States by suppressing minority opinion. I never shared that view. I feel that it was a mistaken idea, and I feel that it was unwise for us to enter upon the policy of attempting to preserve our constitutional Government by a ¿agrant violation of a constitutional principle. This resolution calls for a recommendation of amnesty for those who have been imprisoned for Opinions held or words expressed. All of those in prison for words spoken or an opinion expressed are, in our judgment, in prison in violation of the first amendment of the Constitution Of the United States, which prohibits Congress from enacting an statute abridging the right of freedom of speech.
