(Testimony of Speedy Johnson)

Mr. Hubert.
I am going to show you a document which purports to be a report of that interview made by Scott, and I am marking it for identification as follows: "Dallas, Texas, July 13, 1964, Exhibit No. 1, Deposition of Speedy Johnson."
I am marking my name, writing my name below that. It consists of one page only. I would like you to read it, sir.
Mr. Johnson.
Mr. Hubert.
Now does that represent a fair report and correct report of the interview that you had with this FBI Agent Scotty
Mr. Johnson.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
This indicates that FBI Agent Scott got the impression from you

when he interviewed you that you did not know Ruby at the time.
Mr. Johnson.
I didn't know him. I still don't know him.
Mr. Hubert.
Well it
Mr. Johnson.
As I told initially I had.
Mr. Hubert.
Well, this says that you said that you had not seen Jack Ruby prior to this time, prior to this occasion on November 23, and I take it that you want to correct that statement so that it would reflect that you had seen him on the one previous occasion we were speaking of?
Mr. Johnson.
On the one previous occasion; yes, sir, but that was a long time before that.
Mr. Hubert.
But in any case, this document which is Exhibit No. 1, is not correct when it says that you said you had not seen Jack Ruby prior to this time.
Mr. Johnson.
Well, if we go back to infinity, really.
Mr. Hubert.
All I am asking is, this statement seems to contain something that is contradictory to something you said awhile ago, and I am just trying to see which is right.
Mr. Johnson.
I had met him only one time before, a number of years ago.
Mr. Hubert.
All right, this statement also says that the individual talking about Ruby made other remarks, the exact nature not recalled, indicating that

he was highly incensed at the criticism of President Kennedy.
Mr. Johnson.
Right.
Mr. Hubert.
That is correct?
Mr. Johnson.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Otherwise, this statement is correct?
Mr. Johnson.
Yes, sir; that is what I told him.
Mr. Hubert.
All right, Mr. Johnson, is there anything else you wish to add ?
Mr. Johnson.
No, sir; that is all I know.
Mr. Hubert.
I don't think that there has been anything that has passed between

us here today that has not been reported by the stenographer ?
Mr. Johnson.
Very good.
Mr. Hubert.
Thank you, Mr. Johnson. Glad you came in.
Mr. Johnson.
Yes, sir.
