This was, oh, months ago before I sent Pat Gray's name up. I said, `Pat, I want you to check these leaks.' He said, `Oh, they couldn't be from the bureau.' I said, `Yes they are. Some are.' And I said, `We have on very good authority they're there from Felt.' `Oh, it couldn't be from Felt.' I said, `Dammit ... you ought to give him a lie detector test.' You know, I was very tough. `Oh, we can't do that,' he said. He said, `But I vouch for Felt.' ... I also raised it with [former Atty. Gen. Richard] Kleindienst. Kleindienst vouched for Felt. That shows you how clever Felt is. My point is that this was three, four months ago that we were onto the son of a bitch.
