Description

This eight-page typescript appears to be the copy that Perkins used in her hearing before the House Judiciary Committee. In conclusion, she stated: “It is because I share the confidence of other Americans in the capacity of our institutions to protect me against injustice that I have satisfaction in the consideration of these charges, and my denial of them … This faith exists and must be confirmed daily by those of us who hold high office so that liberty may not perish from the land.”
