In this speech, Senator Joseph McCarthy alleged that Communists were working in the U.S. State Department. Although he failed to prove his claims, McCarthy gained national attention. For the next four years, he led investigations of several federal agencies and interrogated hundreds of suspected subversives. His ruthless tactics and militant anti-Communism won admirers and detractors. In December 1954, the Senate officially censured McCarthy for unbecoming conduct.
