(Affidavit of J. Philip Lux)

Affidavit of Howard Leslie Brennan

The following affidavit was executed by Howard Leslie Brennan on May 7, 1964

PRESIDENT'S COMMISSION
ON THE ASSASSINATION OF AFFIDAVIT
PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY

STATE OF TEXAS,
County of Dallas, ss:

I, Howard Leslie Brennan, being first duly sworn, do upon oath depose and state:
On or about March 24, 1964, I testified in Washington, D.C., before the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy. In that connection I testified as to the reasons why I declined on November 22, 1963, to give, positive identification of Lee Harvey Oswald as the man I saw firing a rifle fro the southeast corner of the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository Building on November 22, 1963.
Included in these reasons at pages 3629 and 3630 of Volume 28 of the transcript of the Commission proceedings are the following reasons:
"And then I felt that my family could be in danger, and I, myself, might in danger. And since they already had the man for murder, that he wasn't going to be set free to escape and get out of the country immediately, and I could very easily sooner than the FBI or the Secret Service wanted me, my testimony in, I could very easily get in touch with them, if they didn't get in touch with me and to see that the man didn't get loose."
"... "Because I had already more or less give a detailed description of the man, and I talked to the Secret Service and gave them my statement, and the had convinced me that it would be strictly confidential and all that. But still I felt like if I was the only eye witness, that anything could happen to me or my family."
I have also been advised that on page 3595 of Volume 28 of the transcript the Commission proceedings, the following appears:
"Mr. BELIN. What do you mean by security reasons for your family, an yourself?
"Mr. BRENNAN. I believe at that time, and I still believe it was a Communist activity, and I felt like there had been more than one eye witness, and if it got

to be a known fact that I was an eye witness, my family or I, either one, might not be safe."
I hereby state that this is a court reporter's error and that in truth and in fact my answer to the question was:
"Mr. BRENNAN: I believe at that time, and I still believe it was a Communist activity, and I felt like there hadn't been more than one eye witness, and if it got to be a known fact that I was an eye witness. my family or I either one, might nor be safe."
Signed the 7th day of May 1964.
(S) Howard Leslie Brennan.
HOWARD LESLIE BRENNAN.
