This is one of the most ridiculous claims I've ever heard. Two weeks before Joe McCarthy's speech, the Truman administration had quoted Proverbs in defense of a proven traitor (Alger Hiss), whom it had defended tooth and nail. The idea that Truman had done any purge flies in the face of reason and common sense, and likewise the idea that it was done with by the time McCarthy stepped onto the scene.
