  1. Did you know that Supreme Court Justice William O Douglas thought at the time of the Hiss trials that someone had framed Alger Hiss using forged evidence and a remanufactured typewriter? That Hiss was never named in any Soviet file as having been a Soviet agent? That increasing amounts of information are pointing to the conclusion that Hiss was in fact innocent?
