On February 20, 1950, Senator Joseph McCarthy stated that "I have here in my hand a list of 205; a list of names that were made known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping policy in the State Department." This speech received extensive coverage in the press and prompted President Truman come out with this statement against McCarty. As McCarthy continued his campaign, Truman spoke against "scaremongers and hatemongers" who "are trying to create fear and suspicion among us by the use of slander, unproved accusations, and just plain lies."
