"I said I am John Yerkes Iselin and I hold here in my hand a list of two hundred and seven persons who are known to the Secretary of Defence as being members of the Communist Party and who, are still working and shaping the policy of the Defence Department."
"Whaaaat?" The Secretary had to shout out his astonishment into the microphones to be heard, over the excited keening and rumbling of the voices in the room.
"I demand an answer, Mr Secretary!" Johnny cried, waving a clutch of papers high over his head, his voice a silver trumpet of righteousness.
The Secretary had turned from beet-red to magenta. He was breathing with difficulty. He gripped the lecture before him as though he might decide to throw it at Johnny. "If you have such a list, Senator, goddammit," he bellowed, "bring it here. Give me that list!"
"There will be no covering up, Mr Secretary. You will not put your hands on this list. I regret deeply to say in front of all of these men and women that you no longer have my confidence."
"This is no longer a matter for investigation by the Department of Defence. I am afraid you have had your chance, sir. It has become the responsibility of the United States Senate." Johnny turned and strode from the room, leaving chaos behind him.
