The Center was incorporated in 1966
in New Jersey by far-left attorneys Arthur Kinoy, William Kunstler, Ben Smith and Morton Stavis, and re-filed in New York on March 5, 1971 as a foreign not-for-profit corporation.

Self description: THE CENTER FOR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS IS A NON-PROFIT LEGAL AND EDUCATIONAL ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO ADVANCING AND PROTECTING THE RIGHTS GUARANTEED BY THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION.

Actual: The Center for Constitutional Rights is a radical far left non-profit legal organization whose lawyers defend only overt enemies of America ranging from an alleged communist-controlled trade union (the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America), to the failed World Trade Center truck bombing mastermind, Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, to enemy combatants held in U.S. custody in the Guantanamo Bay detainee prison, among many others.

An excerpt from the revealing book, The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton and sixties radicals seized control of the democratic Party, by David Horowitz and Richard Poe, accurately places the Center for Constitutional Rights in proper context:

Lynne Stewart was no defender of "human rights." She is a well-known member of the pro-Communist "legal left" familiar to Aryeh Neier, himself a frequent contributor for the leftist Nation. It is no secret in "progressive" circles that Stewart is a self-described revolutionary, who advocates the violent overthrow of capitalism followed by the state suppression of people considered "counterrevolutionary" by the new regime. "I don't have any problem with Mao or Stalin or the Vietnamese leaders or certainly Fidel locking up people they see as dangerous;' she opined in a November 2002 interview in the Maoist journal Monthly Review. In a 1995 interview with the New York Times, Stewart said, "I don't believe in anarchistic violence, but in directed violence. That would be violence directed at the institutions which perpetuate capitalism, racism, sexism, and at the people who are the appointed guardians of those institutions."

In keeping with her belief in "directed violence;' Stewart has made a vocation of defending violent radicals in court, often as counsel for the radical Center for Constitutional Rights. Her clients have included the Weather Underground terrorist Kathy Boudin, who drove the getaway car during a 1981 Brinks truck robbery in Nyack, New York; David J. Gilbert, who was convicted, along with two comrades, of killing two police officers and a security guard in the same 1981 Brinks truck robbery; Black Panther Willie Holder, who hijacked an airliner to Algiers in 1972 and who allegedly plotted another skyjacking in 1991; and a Palestinian who tried to firebomb a New York synagogue.

It was while defending the "blind Sheikh" Omar Abdel Rahman, however, that Stewart crossed the line and made the transition from terrorist lawyer to terrorist accomplice. Stewart believed passionately in Rahman's cause. Regarding her relationship with the "blind Sheikh," a New York Times Magazine article of 22 September 2002 notes, "Stewart was a 'movement' lawyer-she didn't just defend the legal rights of her clients; she also advocated their politics .... As Stewart got to know her new client, she came to see him as a fighter for national liberation on behalf of a people oppressed by dictatorship and American imperialism."

Despite Stewart's best efforts, Rahman was sentenced to life in prison on 17 January 1996 for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the "Day of Terror" plot. The Al'Gama'a al-Islamiyya (Islamic Group) that Rahman heads in Egypt immediately threatened to "hit American interests and personalities" unless US authorities released their leader.

Confronted with this threat, Rahman's prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald imposed "Special Administrative Measures" forbidding the Sheikh to communicate with anyone but his wife and lawyers. All persons allowed access to the Sheikh were forbidden to relay messages back and forth between the cleric and his terrorist followers. The obvious reason for imposing these rules was to prevent Rahman from ordering or encouraging more killings.

Lynne Stewart agreed to these Special Administrative Measures, but then flouted them, helping her client transmit many messages to his flock, including incitements to violence.25 One technique Stewart employed to smuggle out the Sheikh's communiqués was to distract the prison guard's attention by pretending to make small talk with the Sheikh. While Stewart kept up a stream of blather, much of it quite nonsensical, the Sheikh would speak quietly in Arabic to his interpreter, conveying to him whatever messages he wished to send. Unbeknownst to the conspirators, their intrigues were captured on tape.

The FBI arrested Stewart outside her Brooklyn home on 9 April 2002. She struck a defiant pose at her trial, declaring at one point, "To rid ourselves of the entrenched, voracious type of capitalism that is in this country that perpetuates sexism and racism, I don't think that can come nonviolently .... I'm talking about a popu1ar revolution. I'm talking about institutions being changed and that will not be changed without violence."

Charged with two counts each of aiding terrorists and lying to federal investigators, Stewart was convicted on 10 February 2005.

Following her arrest, Lynne Stewart's case became a cause célèbre on the left. A "Free Lynne Stewart" movement formed within days. The Center for Constitutional Rights issued a press release characterizing Stewart's indictment as "an attack on attorneys who defend controversial figures and an attempt to deprive these clients of the zealous representation that may be required."

Leading the "Free Lynne Stewart" movement was the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Following her conviction, the Massachusetts ACLU issued a statement that read, in part, "[T]he prosecution of Lynne Stewart is a chilling testament to what is being done to individual rights and to the ru1e of law itself in the name of 'fighting terrorism' ... . [W]e can only hope that the conviction of Lynne Stewart will be overturned on appeal."
