In 2003, a controversy arose around the case of National Lawyers Guild (NLG) member attorney Lynne Stewart, who was charged with transmitting terrorist communications from prison for Omar Abdel-Rahman, (of course he was also "tortured" ) her former client and mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombings. Stewart was ultimately convicted of the charges and sentenced to 28 months in federal prison "Lawyer Gets Prison Term in Terrorism Case." The NLG supported Stewart, condemning the charges and the conviction.
Article from FrontPage.com...The National Lawyers Guild (NLG, also "the Guild") embraces every anti-America, anti-capitalist, anti-war, anti-Israel, and "anti-imperialist" cause in vogue among the far left and declares itself "dedicated to the need for basic change in the structure of our political and economic system." If this strikes the reader as a slight hint that the Guild’s underlying ideology is not exactly laissez-faire capitalism, that is because it is not. While the Guild is not officially communist or Marxist, its membership, leadership, past internal struggles, and adopted stances consistently point to an organization whose underlying convictions could best be described as such.
