The article focuses on Congressional investigations in the United States. Since Congress constantly needs factual, well-balanced information in many different fields to enable it to act wisely in the public interest, Congressional investigations are one of the most important of the legislative processes. But such investigations should never be allowed to become instruments for abridging the constitutional rights of citizens. As a result of resentment against methods employed by certain investigating committees, the Committee on the Bill of Rights of the Bar Association of New York City made a study of the subject.
