Operation "Get Einstein"

From: The Einstein File


This chapter further discusses the FBI’s file on Einstein and Hoover’s anti-Einstein operation following the scientist’s public statements warning against the dangers of nuclear weapons. Other figures such as Eleanor Roosevelt and Dr. Klaus E.J. Fuchs are discussed. Other topics include crank mail about Einstein received by the FBI, the questionable espionage sections of the FBI’s Einstein file, and secret efforts to take away Einstein’s citizenship and then deport him as “an undesirable alien,” among other topics.
