    Outlawed the Communist Party in the U.S. Passed with broad bipartisan support and signed by Eisenhower.

    It was backed strongly and publicly by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, who was publicly and unapologetically hostile toward the Communist Party, and was the source of investigations tying them to Russian espionage.

    The powerful Republicans saying the FISA warrants weren't warranted based on the alleged hostility of junior FBI agents toward Trump in private ... and the powerful Democrats who claim to be defending liberty against Trump ... owe it to the Communist Party to repeal the Communist Control Act, which is still on the books, publicly apologize, free all political prisoners, and make financial restitution.
