Sedition Prosecutor’s Report on Pro-fascist Activities Reported Killed by Justice Dept.

O. John Rogge, special assistant to Attorney General Tom Clark and prosecutor in the mass sedition trials which were halted by the death of the presiding judge, has reported that a 350-page report on domestic and international fascist operations which he submitted to the Attorney General has been suppressed by the Justice Department, the New York Post declared today.

The Post says that Rogge told its correspondent that the report was in the hands of the Attorney General, and that “I have reason to believe it will not be released.” Rogge refused to make public the findings of his report, but the Post writer asserts that it concludes with the recommendation that the prosecution of the sedition trial be dropped because recent decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court make it evident that a conviction would not be upheld.
