(Testimony of Robert Edward Oswald Lee Resumed)

Oswald as a witness, the manner in which the Commission and its counsel have conducted the interrogation of Mr. Oswald. We further appreciate the opportunity to be in Washington and to be heard, and hope that in some manner that we may assist in shedding some light that will assist this Commission in making its final report, and that the true facts of this situation will be known to the President of the United States to use at his discretion.

Mr. Dulles.
Thank you very much, Mr. McKenzie.
Mr. Jenner.
May I ask one more question?
Up until this afternoon when I questioned you, possibly there might have been a question this morning on the subject of any opinion which you might have held dealing with whether your brother did or did not participate in the shooting of Officer Tippit or the assassination of President Kennedy, had I had any conversation with you on that subject?
Mr. Oswald.
Yes, sir; I believe you had.
Mr. Jenner.
When was that?
Mr. Oswald.
I believe this was on the first session, during the first session on Wednesday, February 20, 1964.
Mr. Jenner.
Was it in this room?
Mr. Oswald.
Yes, sir; it was.
Mr. Jenner.
That is all I meant. I had no separate--no conversation with you on the subject other than as I might have put a question to you in the presence of the Commission.
Mr. Oswald.
That is correct.
Mr. Jenner.
Thank you.
Mr. Dulles.
And a part of the record.
Mr. Jenner.
And as part of the record; yes, sir.
Mr. Dulles.
We will adjourn.
(Whereupon, at 3:40 p.m., the President's Commission recessed.)
