Testimony of Victor F. , Jr. Robertson

The testimony of Victor F. Robertson, Jr. was taken at 2:05 p.m., on July 24, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex., by Mr. Burt W. Griffin, assistant Counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Griffin.
I will introduce myself again. I am Burt Griffin, and I am a member of the general counsel's staff of the Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy.
We have a general procedure of giving a little spiel in advance about what we are here for, so I will tell you that the Commission has been set up pursuant to an Executive order of President Johnson and a joint resolution of Congress and we have been directed to investigate and evaluate and report back to the President all the facts that have to do with the assassination of President Kennedy and the death of Lee Harvey Oswald.
We have asked you to come here today because in particular you provided some very helpful information to the FBI.
We want to find out what you can tell us about the events of November 22, 23, and 24. Did you receive a letter from us?
Mr. Robertson.
Yes; I did.
Mr. Griffin.
Did you receive that 3 days ago or longer?
Mr. Robertson.
I received one about 10 days ago just before I left for San Franisco and the convention. This one is dated the 18th.
Mr. Griffin.
You are entitled to receive a written notice 3 days before you get here. Do you have any questions that you would like to ask about the deposition that i.s about to be taken?
Mr. Robertson.
None at all.
Mr. Griffin.
Would you raise your right hand? Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you are about to give will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. Robertson.
I do.
Mr. Griffin.
Will you state your full name for the court reporter.
Mr. Robertson.
Victor F. Robertson, Jr.
Mr. Griffin.
Where do you live?
Mr. Robertson.
Dallas, Tex.
Mr. Griffin.
Could you give us your address?
Mr. Robertson.
414 South Willomet Avenue.
Mr. Griffin.
When were you born?
Mr. Robertson.
December 17, 1933.
Mr. Griffin.
Where are you presently employed?
Mr. Robertson.
With WFAA radio and television.
Mr. Griffin.
What do you do for them?
Mr. Robertson.
I am a reporter.
Mr. Griffin.
Are ,you a news reporter?
Mr. Robertson.
Oddly enough, the only way I can clarify it as a reporter, I work covering the city hall beat primarily, and political assignments. I do some work on the air, actually, I am assigned outside the station just as a reporter.
Mr. Griffin.
Did you know Jack Ruby before November 22?
Mr. Robertson.
Yes.
Mr. Griffin.
When had you first met him?
