In this letter, dated February 28, 1950, from United States (US) Senator Joseph R. McCarthy to US Senator William Langer, McCarthy refers to the case of convicted Nazi war criminal Martin Sandberger, who is currently awaiting execution.
McCarthy explains to Langer that there will likely be no investigation of the Nuremberg cases and that he assumes executions will be held shortly. In closing he characterizes the Nuremberg trials as a "sorry spectacle" in connection with "alleged American justice," commenting that, "while we may have caught some bad individuals in the net, it was purely accidental."
