Roy was famous in his own right. He was Joe McCarthy's right-hand man and chief inquisitor during the Army-McCarthy hearings, which are famous or rather infamous now as an example of prosecution by innuendo and character assassination and one of the most disgraceful periods in American life, and Roy was the leader of that, and he was disgraced, as McCarthy was disgraced, and retreated to New York City where he was very well-connected in politics and high society, and when Donald became a young man, it was Roy Cohn that he turned to as a mentor. … [Read more...] about Who is Donald Trump?

Looking back at the case, one of the most striking things to me is procedural: Moseley was convicted in June, 1964, for a murder he committed in March. That would be considered breakneck speed by modern standards, especially in the Bronx, where cases often linger for four or five years.
