(Testimony of Rio S. Pierce)

Mr. Hubert.
Smith of you, Rio Pierce, on December 2, 1963. Now, I ask you if you have had an opportunity to look at these documents?
Lieutenant PIERCE. Yes, sir.
Mr.. HUBERT. Are those documents correct and true?
Lieutenant PIERCE. To the best of my knowledge, they are.
Mr. Hubert.
Are there any omissions of a material nature?
Lieutenant PIERCE. I don't recall any.
Mr. Hubert.
Anything you would like to delete as not being the truth, or add because it has been omitted?
Lieutenant PIERCE No; I don't see anything in there that I would care to change.
Mr. Hubert.
As far as you know, this represents the truth as you know it?
Lieutenant PIERCE. Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Now, Maxey was in your car, was he not?
Lieutenant PIERCE. Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Was he in the rear?
Lieutenant PIERCE. Yes.
Mr. Hubert.
Did he ever talk to you about having seen Daniels at the exit? N. J. Daniels?
Lieutenant PIERCE. You mean since then?
Mr. Hubert.
Well, since the day you drove out of there. In other words, have you and Maxey ever, at all, conversed about whether he, Maxey, saw Daniels?
Lieutenant PIERCE. It is possible. I don't recall. People talk about a lot of things since then.
Mr. Hubert.
Now, there has been no interview between you and any member of the Commission's staff before this deposition today, has there?
Lieutenant PIERCE. No.
Mr. Hubert.
Anything else you want to say or add or change?
Lieutenant PIERCE. I don't know of a thing.
Mr. Hubert.
Thank you very much, sir.

I state to you now that the general nature of the Commission's inquiry is to ascertain, evaluate, and report upon the facts relating to the assassination of President Kennedy and the subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald. In particular to you, Sergeant Putnam, the nature of this inquiry tonight is to determine what facts you know about the death of Oswald and any other pertinent facts you know, now, about the general inquiry.
